Kickin Grass Band featuring Bluegrass Music Camp Students
Join PineCone and the Town of Cary for a special night of music featuring the Kickin Grass Band and students from the PineCone Bluegrass Music Camp! The camp included students ages 8-16 learning guitar, fiddle, mandolin, and songwriting. Charles Pettee of the Shady Grove Band taught the guitar and mandolin tracks, while Pattie Hopkins of Kickin Grass instructed the students in the beginner and intermediate fiddle tracks. And Kickin Grass leader Lynda Dawson taught the songwriting class! This concert is the culmination of the week-long camp, but we hope it is only the beginning for this next generation of musicians!
Over the last decade, Raleigh-based bluegrass and Americana group Kickin Grass has become one of the most visible groups on the Piedmont's roots music circuit. Consisting of mandolinist Jamie Dawson; fiddler Pattie Hopkins; bassist Patrick Walsh; banjo player Hank Smith; and guitarist and songwriter Lynda Dawson
