Celebrate the New Year with the Circus No. 9 Band                                                         

Described as “John Hartford meets John Coltrane,” Circus No. 9 is one of the most exciting new bands on the acoustic music scene today with music that blurs the lines between bluegrass, jazz, and rock. Celebrate the new year when these virtuosos take the stage at the Old Theater on Saturday, January 15, at 7:30 pm. On that same date, the band will conduct an “informance” at 2pm at the Holt's Chapel Community Center, 136 Janiero Road, free and open to the public. Both events are sponsored by the Pamlico Musical Society.

Comprised of four highly-acclaimed musicians on fiddle, mandolin, bass and guitar, this Tennessee-based group wasa 2019 IBMA Momentum Band Award nominee and has appeared alongside artists David Grisman, BryanSutton, and Larry Keel, among others.  One fan says “Circus No.9 represents everything that’s good about the new generation of acoustic music.”

Tickets to the evening concert are $25 and are available in Oriental at Nautical Wheelers, 411 Broad Street, and online at  Tickets for sold-out shows may become available at the door last minute.
