Subject: Shammick Abroad special _at_ The George, South Molton



Hello all,


As well as anticipating a stunning performance from Craig & Willoughby at our usual monthly concert at Combe Martin tonight, we?re really excited about presenting four-piece band Appalachia at The George, South Molton next Saturday, 31st March.



With a potent brew of American roots music creating a perfect blend of strings, voices and musical styles, these guys mix blues, country, jazz, ragtime, bluegrass and their own writing, providing an inspired take on American roots music.  Appalachia?s original arrangements use finely-crafted four-part harmonies, with guitar, slide, dobro, mandolin, banjo, fiddle, harmonica and double bass, delivering a foot-stomping, feel-good sound. 


They?ve created a real stir on the Bristol and Somerset acoustic music scene, going down a storm at Priddy Folk Festival and Didmarton Bluegrass festival, resulting in immediate repeat bookings at both.


As one reviewer said, ?Guaranteed to put a smile on your face and a rhythm in your feet ? do NOT miss these guys!?


The concert starts at 8 p.m. and tickets are ?7 at the door, or in advance from, or if you?re in South Molton, you can obtain tickets from the venue.  Tickets can also be reserved by ringing The George on 01769 572514, or Shammick Acoustic on 01271 882366.


It?s going to be a great night ? see you there, we hope!
