23 String Band To Appear Oct. 16 At General Butler Concert Series
CARROLLTON, Ky. – The “Play er’ Again” Concert Series at General Butler State Resort Park will feature the 23 String Band on Oct. 16 at 7 p.m.
The concert, at the Butler-Turpin State Historic House on the park grounds, is free.
The 23 String Band, an old-time group that offers a new twist to traditional mountain music, is known for its unique arrangements branded as “Original Hillbilly Music.”
“The 23 String Band is the best band to come out of eastern Kentucky in a long while. Their shows are electrifying, their songwriting is top-notch and their vocals are as tight as the cork on a jug of moonshine. They’re my favorite band from the region,” said writer and author Silas House.
Guests are asked to bring their own chairs and blankets.
