Midtown Bluegrass Series in North Hills

This weekend promises both great weather and free live music in the Triangle! The Midtown Bluegrass Series officially gets under way from 2pm-6pm at North Hills Midtown Park on Sunday. Love Canon and Tellico are the featured acts taking the stage for what is sure to be an enjoyable afternoon of bluegrass music.  Sunday will be the first of a series of events in the Triangle this summer to be presented by PNC in partnership with PineCone-Piedmont Council of Traditional Music.

Tellico will be making their way to North Hills by way of Asheville, NC.  Firmly planted in Asheville's thriving roots music scene, Tellico is well-schooled in bluegrass, but with an unbridled organic "Appalachiacana" sound, combining some of the finest voices, songs and instrumental prowess in Western NC and beyond.

Band members, Anya Hinkle and Greg "Stig" Stiglets create authentic vocals that are aligned with Aaron Ballance's soaring dobro and Jed Willis' textured and expressive mandolin.  Combining these unique musical talents, Tellico's sound is rooted in the mountain music they grew up with while pushing tradition into a modern Americana sound aesthetic.

Most recently featured at the MerleFest Music Festival in Wilkesboro, NC, Love Canon will bring their lively bluegrass ensemble to the Triangle from Charlottesville, VA.  While this talented group of musicians feature traditional bluegrass instruments, they are certain to get the crowd off their feet as they play their own rendition of traditional 80's hits.  As indicated by their selection to host an evening at the Dance Tent at MerleFest, the musicians thrive on providing a unique experience for all listeners.  From Toto to ZZ Top, you're likely to hear it all on Sunday, so be sure to make plans to be a part of this afternoon of music.
