Presented by: Six String. North Carolina’s Tommy Edwards & The Bluegrass Experience are celebrating their 48th year of picking and singing some of the best bluegrass in the country. During the past 48 years or so, the band has fielded a total of only 12 members. Of the six founders, three have passed on and two, guitarist Edwards and bassist Thomas “Snuffy” Smith, remain with the group to this day. They have four albums to their credit and are looking forward to a special show at The Cary Theater.
