Riley Baugus represents the very best of old time American banjo and song. He tours in the UK in November 2019 (2nd– 20th): Banjos, Ballads, Stories and Songs of the Southern Appalachians.
A native of the southern Appalachians, he grew up learning the music and art of storytelling of the region from older musicians in the area. He has, of course, toured in the UK for many years with Ira Bernstein, as one half of the Appalachian Roots project. He has played at Celtic Connections several times with Dirk Powell, and also toured with Tim Eriksen in the States, as part of the Cold Mountain film tour. Riley has also recorded with Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, and with Willie Nelson – both T-Bone Burnett projects.
Riley Baugus: Banjos, Ballads, Stories and Songs. Further Dates to be added.
