On Friday June 4, 2010, as part of the Graves Mountain Festival in Syria, VA, Rural Rhythm Records will be celebrating its fifty-fifth anniversary by presenting a whole day of Rural Rhythm artists. The event will be recorded live with Kyle Cantrell as emcee and presented later on Sirius/XM radio. It's truly a delight to see Sirius/XM return to live recordings of festival events. To announce this event, Carl Jackson has written a song about the history of Graves Mountain, which was debuted at the Rural Rhytym Showcase, sung and played by an all-star jam. The rest of the line-up for next year's Graves Mountain Festival is equally luminous.
The Rural Rhythm Records Showcase was an exciting and enjoyable event. Since it was the only such event we were invited to attend, we particularly enjoyed it. Our thanks to the folks at Rural Rhythm for including us.
