Saturday, May 19th, 2012, at 7:30 p.m., the Carter Family Fold in Hiltons, Virginia, will present a concert of bluegrass music by Travers Chandler and Avery County. Admission to the concert is $7 for adults, $1 for children 6 to 11, under age six free. Avery County came together in 2009 to preserve the legacies of bluegrass music's lost heroes while bringing their sound to new audiences. Members have garnered much acclaim and IBMA accolades after stints with the James King Band, Danny Paisley and the Southern Grass, the Country Gentlemen, Spring Creek, Dave Evans, Karl Shiflett and Big Country, and numerous others prior to forming Avery County. Celebrating the influences of the past, the group is also busily creating new music. Travers Chandler heads up the group with lead vocals playing mandolin and guitar. Backing him will be John Bryan on guitar and vocals, Tom Issacs on banjo and vocals, Merl Johnson on fiddle and vocals, and Eddie Lovelace on bass.
