The MAY JAM SESSION will be on Monday May 5th starting at 7:00 pm. We are having some really good turn-outs at these Jam Sessions and encourage you to join us ! There is never a charge to play or to listen. We encourage you to come especially if you are a beginning musician...the best thing for beginners is to be around people with more experience ! All ages are welcomed ! We do have drinks and snacks available for sale during the Jam Sessions. We try to finish up by 9:00 to get those kids home !
Friday MAY 9th at 7:00 PM we welcome REVONDA ROBERTS & HARVEST WIND to the Opry House.
Revonda Roberts and Harvest Wind are a Multi-Dove Award nominated 6 member bluegrass gospel group. They received a 2008 SPBGMA nomination for Bluegrass Gospel Group of The Year. Their last cd, "Ancient of The Days" lifted the bar in the bluegrass gospel genre. It was so well received among gospel and bluegrass radio that songs continue to remain on well respected music charts. Their music crossed genre lines, landing on country gospel charts as well as bluegrass and southern gospel charts. This band is known for its original material and captivating sound.
They won a statewide talent search that earned them an appearance on the legendary "Carolina Calling / Authur Smith television program. The show that they were on still appears on television. Additionally, they have been booked at New York City's Lincoln Center and Silver Dollar City and have played SPBGMA in Nashville, TN several times. They have played with just about every bluegrass group in the field today. Their music has often been selected as bluegrass association theme songs and helped to launch radio stations all across the country. The band is in such high demand that they book nearly a year in advance. They also do their part in the community playing for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Hospice and Special Olympics.
They were the highest selling artist with their first record label and when they signed their next recording contract, their music became international. With no signs of slowing down, this group is preparing to have their fifth cd titled "Stillwater" coming out Spring 2008.
Please bring the neighbors and enjoy a night of good bluegrass gospel at its very best.
