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.
