Bobby Hicks with The Blue Ridge Orchestra

Legendary fiddler Bobby Hicks will perform with The Blue Ridge Orchestra (BRO) on Sunday March 12, 2006 in The Lipinsky Auditorium, on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Asheville, in Asheville, NC. The program for the 3:00 p.m. concert will mix bluegrass and classical music, with some Celtic and Appalachian fiddle music thrown in as well.

Bobby will be featured on versions of Turkey In The Straw and Orange Blossom Special, arranged for solo violin (fiddle) and the 70 piece orchestra, plus Bobby’s original fiddle tune, Angel’s Waltz.

The BRO is a community orchestra serving the Asheville area, focused on education and community participation, performing five concerts each year since their founding in 1999. They do not seem to have a web site, but more information on the show can be obtained by calling BRO Director Ron Lambe at 828-252-0643, or by email.
