The quality and diversity of North Carolina’s traditional music scene will be on display during the third annual Sounds of the Mountains concert series in January at the Willingham Theater in Yadkinville, North Carolina. The series is a collaboration between the Blue Ridge Music Center and the Yadkin Cultural Arts Center. The performances will feature old-time mountain music, progressive bluegrass, and contemporary Americana with some of the Old North State’s best roots and traditional performers including Chatham County Line (Raleigh), The Jeff Little Trio (Todd), and the Snyder Family Band (Lexington).
The Snyder Family Band will end our series on January 20th! The Snyder Family band is comprised of brother and sister duo, Zeb (guitar, mandolin) and Samantha (fiddle), plus their dad Bud (bass). The group plays a unique fusion of musical styles including bluegrass, blues, country, gospel, and jazz. Zeb, a skilled multi-instrumentalist, began his musical career with classical guitar training at age seven. He pulls from a wide variety of musical genres such as Southern rock, blues, and country, tastefully creating his own rich style. Samantha, who began in classical violin lessons at the age of three, is an award-winning fiddler as well as a top-notch singer and songwriter. She loves the expressive, soulful nature of her instrument, and is dedicated to crafting unique songs with meaningful lyrics and stirring music.
