Botanical Gardens & EVERGLADES Wildlife Sanctuary

With Lonesome Meadow

Family band Lonesome Meadow's Kentucky roots shine through in their rich sibling harmonies and amazing instrumentation. In just a few short years, they have amazed audiences from Canada to Florida when they cut loose on classics like Foggy Mountain Breakdown or play waltzes like Ashokan Farewell. Not only do they play traditional and progressive bluegrass, but they also perform their own original bluegrass tunes.

Lonesome Meadow were winners of the 2010 South Carolina State Bluegrass Band Competition at the RenoFest Bluegrass Festival and the 28th Annual Smoky Mountain Fiddler’s Convention Bluegrass Band Competition Loudon, TN. More at
