Sideline to take the Kirby stage


A pedigreed six-piece powerhouse band will take to the Kirby Arts Complex stage at the 2018-2019 Performing Arts Series Season this Saturday at 7:30 p.m.

The Person County Recreation, Arts and Park Department, Person County Arts Council and Piedmont Community College will host Sideline.

Fans will be reminded of why they fell in love with Bluegrass in the first place. A band that was started as an off-season fun experiment has become a full-time dream team of players and singers that carries a style that set the pace in bluegrass for over two decades.

Founders Steve Dilling, Skip Cherryholmes and Jason Moore can all claim their own historical significance to the genre as members of highly awarded groups, along with multiple Grand Ole Opry appearances and years of national and international touring.

What originally started as a side project for the seasoned players soon moved to the front and center as the three were joined by talents of Bailey Coe on guitar, Troy Boone on mandolin and Daniel Greeson on fiddle.

They began to record and release albums in earnest.

The band moves dynamically to form well chosen, hard-hitting neo-traditional covers of classic songs to new material curated by a band with a perfect sense of who they are and what they have to say. Combining this with their on-stage energy and finesse impacts for powerful and affecting harmonies. Sideline has released three national projects and currently records for the highly awarded Mountain Home Music Company based near Asheville.

Tickets are currently on sale and range in price from $8-$20 for students. Tickets can be purchased at the Kirby Gallery, over the telephone with Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, or online at Concessions will be sold before the show and during intermission.
