This year at FCCP we are excited to host the Appalachian Road Show who just took home Instrumental Group of the Year and New Artist of the Year at the 2021 IBMA (International Bluegrass Music Association) Awards. Members of the band have won a number of Grammy awards as well as IBMA awards, and they have been a big part of the bluegrass scene for decades. Appalachian Road Show is a visionary acoustic ensemble, bringing new-generation interpretations of traditional Americana, bluegrass, and folk songs, as well as offering innovative original music, all presented with a common thread tied directly to the heart of the Appalachian regions of the United States. Profit from this show goes toward the repairs and preservation of our historic church.
