Lonesome River Band Live (Rescheduled to February 27, 2021)
July 4 @ 7:30 pm| $32.00
UPDATE JUNE 26, 2020
We are sorry to AGAIN have to inform you that the Lonesome River Band show that was rescheduled to Saturday night, July 4th is postponed due continuing mandates related to COVID-19.
Though we are entering Phase 3 of re-opening, we cannot fit all of you into the Floyd Country Store in a safe manner that would protect you, the band and our staff. Phase 3 specifies 50% capacity while keeping the social distancing of 6 feet. That would mean our capacity is less than the tickets we have sold for the event. So therefore, after consulting with the band, we have all decided to reschedule once again to February 27, 2021.
The good news is that the show is NOT canceled, just POSTPONED. What does that mean?
If you were lucky enough to have tickets to this show, you will simply hang on to your ticket. If the new date works for you, there is nothing to do. Just come to the new date at the Floyd Country Store. If you cannot make it due to scheduling conflicts or other reasons, we will issue a full refund.
We know February is a long time from now… But it would help us out if you can hang on to your tickets and join us when things have settled down. This show will continue to be sold out so if you can, hanging on to your tickets will be best. If you can’t or don’t want to, we will absolutely be happy to issue a refund. Please contact us by email or call 540-745-4563 during business hours for a refund. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate call or email.
We will begin hosting our music events behind the Floyd Country Store starting July 3rd. Our Friday Night Jamboree’s will be held outdoors. We are excited to announce that on July 4th, we will have Sammy Shelor, Jesse Smathers, Junior Sisk and Barry Collins performing starting at 6 PM. There is a suggested donation of $20 to support the musicians and venue during these difficult times. All events will have a suggested donation but will be accessible on a first come, first served basis.
Thanks so much for your understanding and we do wish all of you the best of health and safety throughout this difficult scenario. Please take care of yourself and take care of each other!
Join us February 27, 2021 at 7:30pm for a live show with Lonesome River Band. Tickets are $28 advance, $32 day of show.
Since its formation over 37 years ago, the award-winning Lonesome River Band continues its reputation as one of the most respected names in Bluegrass music. Whether performing on the famous stage of the Grand Ole Opry or headlining major concert events & festivals, their loyal fans continue to support one of the most loved and most influential acts of our time.
Lonesome River Band’s vocal and instrumental talents seamlessly come together as they perform their trademark sound that fans continue to embrace. Their vocal and instrumental skills are performed by: acclaimed singer-songwriter Brandon Rickman on lead vocals & guitar; the 2017 IBMA Momentum Award Vocalist of the Year Jesse Smathers on lead vocals & mandolin; fiddle extraordinaire Mike Hartgrove; outstanding bassist Barry Reed; and Virginia Country Music Hall of Famer, Steve Martin Prize Winner, and five-time IBMA Banjo Player of the Year, Sammy Shelor.
The stellar harmony vocals by Rickman and Smathers is certainly highlighted in the band’s recent albums. In 2018, Lonesome River Band received an IBMA Album of the Year nomination for their self-produced Mayhayley’s House on the Mountain Home Music Company label. They dedicated the album to Mayhayley Lancaster, a self-proclaimed “Oracle of the Ages” who handed out “readings” and personal predictions at her home in southwest Georgia’s Heard County. The bluegrass tinkers of tradition also dedicated the album to its fans; and, to people who understand that traditions once lost are rarely recovered. The musicianship, song selection and vocals are stellar.
In 2017, Lonesome River Band performed at Jim McBride’s induction into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame along with Alan Jackson, Luke Bryan, Earl Thomas Conley, James LeBlanc, Lee Ann Womack, Dustin Lynch, the Bundys, Craig Campbell, Hillary Lindsey, Clint Lagerberg and Steven Lee Olsen.
This award-winning band again built on their familiar sound while adding bold progressiveness to their March 19, 2016 Mountain Home Music Company album, Bridging the Tradition that made its debut at #2 on Billboard’s Top 10 Bluegrass Album Chart. The album received a 2016 IBMA Award Nomination for Album of the Year along with “Thunder & Lightning” for Song of the Year, “Rockin’ of the Cradle” for Gospel Recorded Performance of the Year, and Sammy Shelor for Banjo Performer of the Year.
Lonesome River Band continues to evolve in the ever-changing landscape of Bluegrass and Acoustic Country music. With this album, the band once again delivered incredible, ground-breaking music that is rooted in the tradition it began decades ago.
