Kickin’ Grass turns 10

Popular North Carolina grassers Kickin Grass have big plans for their 10th Anniversary celebration next weekend, and for the rest of 2012 as well.

The band will mark the big 1-0 at The Carolina Theater in Durham on January 14, with a video crew on hand to record the festivities. Mandolinist Jamie Dawson told us this afternoon that they hope to release the show as a live concert DVD in the Fall, following on the heels of their fourth album set to hit Spring or Summer.

Kickin Grass guitarist/vocalist Lynda Wittig Dawson said that there was never a question where they would host this anniversary show.

“The past ten years have been a true joy for us, playing and introducing our rootsy-Americana style of bluegrass to new fans around the world. We‘re thrilled to share the stage with old friends and celebrate this milestone with hometown fans who have played a huge role in our success!”

In addition to the Dawsons, band members include Hank Smith on banjo, Patrick Walsh on bass, and Pattie Hopkins on fiddle.
