New Addition to BCMA/Mountain Stage Line-Up!

September 24, 2012

The Birthplace of Country Music would like to announce an addition to the Mountain Stage line-up coming October 7th to The Paramount Center for the Arts in Historic Downtown Bristol, TN! Pokey LaFarge & the South City Three will join Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Wanda Jackson, Country Music Hall of Famer Connie Smith, and rock-a-billy sensation JD McPherson at the event, hosted by Larry Groce. Tickets to the event are still available at The Paramount Center for the Arts box office and online through their website at TheParamountCenter.com. Reserved seats are $35.

Pokey LaFarge & the South City Three are the next in line to make a significant impact on music enthusiasts everywhere. From St. Louis, Missouri, their creative mix of early jazz, string ragtime, country blues and western swing rings true and fine, making them among the most innovative of all the purists performing roots music today. LaFarge explains, "It's not retro music, it's American roots music that never died." The Independent Music Awards honored us yet again with the award for Best American Album of the Year. Pokey is also no stranger to Bristol, he was added to the Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion line-up in 2010 to the delight of fans who found him among the most entertaining acts at the festival that year.
