James King & The James King Band
At The Moncton High School Auditorium
Thursday, March 23, 2006

Rounder Records recording artist James King & The James King Band will be appearing at the Moncton High School Auditorium Thursday March 23rd at 7 p.m.

Better known as the bluegrass story teller, King has a huge Maritime following, and is always welcome wherever he appears.

Born in Martinsville, Virginia, King was raised with bluegrass music all around him. His uncle Joe Ed played fiddle around James at a young age, and so did his dad. It was at the fiddler's conventions that James attended with his father that he was inspired by the Stanley Brothers, and learned to sing soulfully like Carter Stanley. Opening for James King is Blue Horizon, a young and exciting group from Amherst Nova Scotia.

Blue Horizon won the showcase at The Thomas Point Beach Bluegrass Festival in Brunswick, Maine last September, and will appear as part of this years' festival line-up, come Labor Day weekend.

James will have all his recordings available including his current release, "Bluegrass Storyteller" at the concert and Blue Horizon will be promoting their debut CD. The time is 7PM Thursday March 23 and the price of admission is $12 advance and $15 at the door. You can purchase advance tickets by calling the High School at: 1-506-853-0888 For more information on James King go to:
