The Little Birdies will put on the February 22 edition of Lambeth Live (heard each Friday night from 8-9 on WTJU), and you are invited to be part of the studio audience for this FREE concert broadcast! This talented quartet will be joined for a tunes by the Rivanna Roustabouts!
The Little Birdies take you on a fun musical journey back in time; performing classic Appalachian bluegrass, gospel, folk, and country songs in a close harmony singing style. Songs that were made famous on the Grand Ole Opry in the 50’s and 60’s are brought back to life with joy and promise. The Little Birdies are home based in Central Virginia, near to and motivated by the beauty, music, and mystery of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Their music is inspired by the Carter Family, Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings, Hazel Dickens, and Doc Watson and Jean Ritchie. Alex Butterfield and Malcolm Pulley first performed together at the Galax Fiddler’s convention and people liked it! They received encouragement to continue preforming together and it was then that the Little Birdies was born. Malcolm contributes several original songs to the mix and adds harmony to support the powerful lead vocals delivered by Alex. Join them, sing along, and enjoy the music!
You can of course listen to the concert (91.1 FM around Charlottesville, on-line at wtju.net), or even video stream it at WTJU’s Facebook page, but concerts always sound better with a studio audience!
This week’s concert will take place at The Listening Room at Studio IX, located at 969 2nd St SE in downtown Charlottesville.
