Placeholder Image
The chill of February will be disrupted by some bone-warming fiddle playing next Friday night inside Park Theater.Ricky j Taylor and the Live Roots Ensemble are scheduled to bring their blend of folk and bluegrass music to McMinnville in a show featuring regional fiddle legends Jim and Inge Wood. The performance is set for Feb. 19 at 7 p.m.“I’m intentionally seeking performances in old theaters like this one because I like the atmosphere of places that foster an appreciation of the arts,” said Taylor, who founded the band in 2013. “It will be almost like a museum of instruments on stage because everyone in the band has an affinity for handmade and in some cases one-of-a-kind instruments.”Five-time Tennessee fiddle champion Jim Wood is one of the band anchors.
