Make plans now to attend this great bluegrass concert featuring Karl Shifflett and Big Country along with Buncombe Turnpike

Karl Shiflett grew up in Texas with a love for “Traditional Country Music”, learning to sing and play guitar at the age of nine. His musical influences include; Roy Acuff, Hank Williams, Bob Wills, Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs, ……the list goes on. He began his professional career in bluegrass music as a… side man in the1980’s and organized “The Karl Shiflett & Big Country Show” in 1993.

Highly respected by fans and peers a like “Karl Shiflett” is one of the most recognizable and identifiable names in Bluegrass music. His passion to keep the “spirit of the past” alive in his music has gained him wide spread acclaim as a musician, singer and entertainer.

Deeply rooted in “traditional bluegrass music” he blends elements of “classic country, western swing and honky tonk” creating a sound uniquely his own. He is perhaps best known for his highly entertaining “retro” stage show ( a nostalgic throwback to live performances of “string band” music groups of the 1940’s and 50’s).

A veteran entertainer and performer he possesses a wealth of “old school” knowledge. His time spent as a sideman with the “Legendary Sullivan Family” proved to be invaluable. Through the close relationship between his former employers and “Mr. Bill Monroe” Karl learned the ropes by watching and observing the masters at work.

Today, Karl continues to carry the torch for traditional Bluegrass music having found his own unique niche along the way. His unwavering devotion for the classic sounds of yesteryear along with his heart felt gratitude toward his many loyal fans makes him the ideal “Ambassador” for bluegrass music. It’s no wonder many consider him an “American Treasure”.
