June 19 - The Company Store, Traditional American Music
The Company Store is Marianne Lampert (guitar), Doug Shackelford (banjo), Don Golladay (bass), and Paul Muller (fiddle). Mixing together the all-natural ingredients of America's own music—fiddle melodies from Virginia's Appalachians, tight harmonies from Kentucky's bluegrass and moving spirituals from the Carolina hills—then folding in some hearty laughter, they stock the Store with an assortment of vocal refrains, good fiddlin' and country humor that some say can turn apple cider vinegar into sweet maple syrup.
