The Little Birdies will pull into Offbeat Roadhouse Friday night, March 11, for a concert of bluegrass and old-time which will also be broadcast on WTJU.
This is a free event, open to all. Masks are required for all attendees. You can also listen to Offbeat Roadhouse on the radio (91.1 FM) or on-line, and even video stream it at WTJU’s Facebook page or YouTube channel. But concerts always sound better with you as part of the studio audience. WTJU is located at 2244 Ivy Rd in Charlottesville, right next door to Vivace. There is plenty of parking, both in our lot as well as the Sentara lot next door.
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 Old 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!
