Tickets remain for a performance by the dynamic family band Cherryholmes, a Leach Theatre special event that will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 12. The performance will be held in Leach Theatre of Castleman Hall on the Missouri S&T campus, 10th and Main streets in Rolla.
Cherryholmes did not exist prior to 1999, and half of its youthful members hadn’t even picked up an instrument. In 2005, the high-energy Nashville-based band was named the International Bluegrass Music Association’s Entertainers of the Year.
All six band members take a turn singing lead and showcasing their abilities. In addition to energetic bluegrass, the live show includes twin fiddles, Irish step dancing, classic country yodeling and an old-time claw hammer.
Cherryholmes has received many industry nominations and awards, including a Grammy nomination in 2006 for their first commercial release “Cherryholmes.” Their second release, “Cherryholmes ll,” debuted in the number one spot on the Billboard charts in June 2007. Cherryholmes has also become a regular performer at the historic Grand Ole Opry.
Tickets are $30 for adults and $25 for students. For more information about Leach Theatre events, call the Leach Theatre Box Office at 573-341-4219.
