Big Eyed Rabbit | Memorial Day Live Music
Big Eyed Rabbit is a hard driving Appalachian string band out of the Western Carolinas. With a classic alignment of fiddle, clawhammer banjo, guitar and standup bass, the Rabbits deliver ancient fiddle tunes and mountain songs with finely crafted reckless abandon. This isn’t bluegrass - it’s much older and rustic. This is roots music pulled straight out of the ground!
Briggs Hamilton plays guitar and leads songs from deep in tradition. Barb Massey’s banjo gives the band its signature old time rhythm. Her husband Don’s bass playing keeps the entire affair tied to the ground as Marion Boatwright’s fiddle fires the tunes towards escape velocity. Among us, band members have well over a century of mountain music performing experience.
