Eaglenest hosts Mountain Music Jamboree Oct. 15-16

The Fourth Annual Mountain Music Jamboree at Eaglenest Entertainment in Maggie Valley is Oct. 15-16 and will feature several well-known performers.

Featured entertainers include:

Bill Yates and Friends “A Tribute to the Country Gentlemen” is the result of the love of the “Real” Country Gentlemen music and an impromptu jam session. Bill Yates was a member of The Country Gentlemen from 1969-1989, recording 17 projects with the group and traveling the world over.

Bobby and Blue Ridge Tradition is a five-piece bluegrass band from Asheville that plays a unique mix of traditional and not-so-traditional bluegrass music. The band’s style is clearly not your standard run-of-the-mill bluegrass.

Cody Shuler and Pine Mountain Railroad, an award-winning national touring band and Rural Rhythm Records recording artists have been busy entertaining at festivals, concerts, and other performance venues in the United States and abroad. Now into their eleventh year, this five-piece bluegrass band is led by Cody Shuler, the nine-year veteran performer.  

Lost & Found became quite popular in the early 1970’s, with Allen Mill’s exceptional songwriting contributing much to the group’s fame. “Love of the Mountains” was recorded then and has become a contemporary bluegrass standard.

Balsam Range is a band based in Haywood County that entertains all ages with bluegrass, gospel and country music. Their songs, many written by band members, reflect the musical heritage and traditions from the Southern Mountains, The Grand Ole Opry, and influences of the Appalachian settlers.

Barachah Valley was formed five years ago when friends wanting to play, and sing, traditional bluegrass and gospel music decided to get together to play their favorites and put a traditional spin on modern renditions.

The Fourth Annual Mountain Music Jamboree kicks off Oct. 15 at 6:30 p.m. and continues Saturday, Oct. 16 at 6:30 p.m. For information and tickets call 828.926.9658 or visit our web site at www.eaglenestnc.com.

    The woodcock — secretive, rotund and acrobatic While walking stream banks or low-lying wetlands, you have perhaps had the memorable experience of flushing a woodcock — that secretive, rotund, popeyed, little bird with an exceedingly long down-pointing bill that explodes from underfoot and zigzags away on whistling wings and just barely managing…
