Little Bulb Theatre – Mountain Music
A play about songs that leave and come back again.
When pioneers from the British Isles came to settle in the Appalachian Mountains they brought with them the invisible baggage of songs and reels from “The Old Country”.
Award-winning Little Bulb create an unforgettable tapestry of culture, migration and history in this unique performance, exploring the roots of what we now call country music and its impact on popular music today.
Told in exquisite three-part harmony and featuring fiddle, bass, guitar, banjo and mandolin, expect a theatrical, musical extravaganza.
