August 8-9, 2017 – Southern Raised

Southern Raised is a group of award winning kinfolk, trained in classical music but raised in the bluegrass soaked Ozark Mountains. They have created a trademark sound where classical meets bluegrass and city streets meet country roads. Their sound spans Christian Country, Bluegrass, Celtic, and Classical. They’re talented, energetic, and when these siblings croon a ballad it’s nothing short of breathtaking. Be prepared to expect the unexpected as new life is breathed into the music and your soul. Collectively they have received nominations from Singing News Fan Awards, Diamond Awards, Front Porch Fellowship, and 32 alone from the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music of America. These four string-wielding siblings, Lindsay, Sarah, Emily, and Matthew have a strong passion for music that has taken them to the cutting edge of creativity. They are sweeping the country with a sound that has been described as “the other side of amazing.”

Tuesday matinee arrival at 10:30am; Tuesday and Wednesday evening arrival 5pm.
