Roots music takes wing | Arts & Culture
FAYETTEVILLE — The crowd raised to its feet Friday (Aug. 24) night as the David Grisman Folk Jazz Trio strode onto the stage. The dulcet sounds of Grisman’s mandolin quickly quelled those thirsting for his trademark riffs and rhythms.
Accompanied by his son Samson Grisman on bass and Jim Hurst on guitar, the trio delighted long-time fans and converted new ones. Their performance capped off the first full night of folk, bluegrass and Americana music of the Fayetteville Roots Festival at the Walton Arts Center.
Between songs Grisman quipped, “There are rare copies of CDs available in the lobby. Any accountant worth his salt, in these economically troubled times, would advise you to put some money in CDs.”
The Walton Art’s Center Main Stage acts were rounded out Friday evening with 3 Penny Acre, Hoots and Hellmouth and The Steel Wheels. Click here to read the full story from our partners at TheCityWire.com.
