On Friday, September 8th from 7:30 – 10:00 pm, join us for an evening with Rickie Simpkins and special guests, The Wildwood Flowers!
A fiddler since the age of six, Rickie Simpkins is a true master of his instrument with contributions to a fairly overwhelming list of albums. Growing up in Montgomery County, VA, immersed in the sounds of his family’s Appalachian roots, Simpkins would learn the banjo, guitar, and fiddle as a child, even performing with heroes Flatt & Scruggs at the age of nine. By the time he graduated from high school, he was being recruited by the McPeak Brothers as a full-time member, a gig he would continue throughout the 1970s and into the early ’80s.
Rickie is one of the most powerful multi instrumentalists on the planet an has collaborated with many respected artists such as Emmylou Harris, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Randy Scruggs, and more!
