Description:
Sinkland Farms Brewery presents The Blinky Moon Boys in concert on Saturday, November 10, 2018.

“The Blinky Moon Boys” is a name that people tend to remember. The name actually comes from a joke that was told about the goings on at the “Blinky Moon Tourist Court” in Williamsburg, Kentucky. Such an unusual name is fitting for a group of uncommon musicians.

The Blinky Moon Boys actually live from Georgia to Tennessee to Virginia to West Virginia, so geography dictates that they keep their performances to a minimum, but that’s one thing that keeps the music so refreshing. Each member has played with hometown bands over the years, and past and present members have played with the likes of Bill Monroe, Jimmy Martin, and former Statler Brother, Jimmy Fortune. But the real magic starts when they perform together.

The glue that holds the Blinky Moon Boys together is their shared vision and deep appreciation for the first generation Bluegrass musicians. You can hear the driving banjo style of Earl Scruggs, the smooth brand of TN/KY fiddling, and the punctuated mandolin style of Monroe. You’ll also hear the soulful mountain-style singing of The Stanley Brothers and a “bounce” reminiscent of Jimmy Martin.

Each performance is unique, as guest artists join for many performances. Don’t miss an opportunity to catch a rare performance by these past winners of the Galax Old Fiddlers’ Convention!
