Red Barn Radio Welcomes The Empty Bottle String Band 06/26 7pm They specialize in playing toe-tapping old-time string band music and are known for our tight harmonies, upbeat fiddle tunes, and feel-good music that makes people want to get up and dance. The Empty Bottle String Band originally formed to play a one-time stint at a local farmers market, but have already reached new heights in popularity all over east Tennessee and southwest Virginia, appearing regionally at Bristol’s Rhythm & Roots Reunion, the nationally broadcast tv show Song of the Mountains on PBS, the WDVX Blue Plate Special, WETS Studio One, Jonesborrough Days, Bristol’s Pickin’ Porch, and the Southwest Virginia Museum. This old-time string band is composed of energetic and artistic multi-instrumentalists and singers who met in the East Tennessee State University Bluegrass, Old-Time, and Country Music Studies program. They are dedicated to the preservation and performance of traditional Appalachian songs, ballads, and tunes and will treat the audience to fresh interpretations of standards in the old-time repertoire as well as lesser known songs they've dug up from he archives.
