Juanita Fireball and the Continental Drifters
Juanita Fireball and the Continental Drifters debuted at the Pocahontas Opera House in 2008, although they have been making music together in one form or another for twenty-five years. They play the Appalachian string band tunes that they learned years ago from old-timers in West Virginia, Virginia and North Carolina, and sing songs about animals, outlaws, fruit, and love, with a few gospel numbers for balance.
The band consists of Mike Burns and Jay Lockman on twin fiddles, Mary Sue Burns on clawhammer banjo, Wayne Walton on the doghouse bass, and John Sparks and Terry Richardson on guitar.
The square dance begins at 7:00 p.m. on September 14th and will be held at The Highland Center in Monterey, VA.
