You can catch roots rocker Michelle Malone and country hit singer-songwriter Jason Adamo at The Cary Theatre, 122 E. Chatham St., at 8 p.m. on Friday, March 9. Tickets for the event, sponsored by Six String Presents, range from $15 to $25. Continue reading
King will join Strings for the duration of a late-night, two-hour set at RW10, and iconic drummer Jeff Sipe will also sit in for the latter portion of the performance.
The two have never met, let alone played together, but each calls himself a fan of the other’s music. The current plan involves an unscripted jam that will begin in the bluegrass/acoustic world native to Strings, before evolving into something more electric and rock-based, with Sipe on the kit.
“I think that will be the most fun, if we showcase a little bit of both. We’ll get Marcus some on an acoustic and then get me on an electric with Marcus,” said the 25-year-old Strings. “We’ll kind of do both of our worlds and make them clash.”
Already a veteran of the special guest sit in, King has played with the likes of Widespread Panic, The Allman Brothers and Greensky Bluegrass, to name just a few. He said he’s looking forward to the improvisational set at Pop’s Farm, which will also feature Billy’s band (banjo, fiddle and bass.)
“I think it’s gonna be a hoot man. If I can be frank, I think it’s a great idea, and we’re gonna have a lot of fun with it,” said King, just 21 years old.
Rooster Walk 10 will take place May 24-27, 2018, at Pop’s Farm in Martinsville, Virginia. Headlining bands include The Wood Brothers, JJ Grey & Mofro and Robert Randolph and the Family Band. To buy tickets or learn more information, visit www.RoosterWalk.com.

In light of Shiloh Hill’s Thursday, March 1, show at Muddy Creek Music and Dance Hall in Bethania, North Carolina, with Brooklyn-based Common Jack, I thought I would re-post this story I wrote about this uber talented Winston-Salem-based group in October. Tickets for tonight’s show are $12 in advance and $15 at the door. Shiloh Hill also made my “Favorite Musical Picks for 2017” published here and on The Huffington Post for the group’s most recent album, “Wildflower.” Go check them out. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
Shiloh Hill is a self-described eclectic folk-rock band that layers traditional folk instruments over a rock band rhythm section. My husband and I had the pleasure of discovering their unique sound recently at Craft City Sip-In in Greensboro, North Carolina, where the band is based.
