FREE Bluegrass Concert Coming to UMO March 15

MOUNT OLIVE – The University of Mount Olive will host The Grass Cats Bluegrass Band on March 15 in the Mount Olive Assembly Hall at 207 Wooten St. The event takes place at 7:30 PM and admission is free.


Grass Cats continue to entertain audiences with their exciting, live performances and critically acclaimed recordings. Their shows feature foot-stomping fiddle and banjo music, bluegrass classics, tight vocal harmonies, a cappella gospel quartets and chart-topping original songs. Though careful never to lose their traditional bluegrass footing, the Cats also perform cleverly arranged “covers” of songs from artists as diverse as Eric Clapton, Duke Ellington and Johnny Cash.
