Farm Country Shindig presents the Kevin Prater Band on Saturday, Dec. 3 at the Reinholds Fire Company Banquet Hall.
The Kevin Prater Band is a unique band from the hills of Appalachia creating the pure Kentucky sound based on strong vocal harmonies. Built around high trios the Kevin Prater Band sound comes from a wide range of influences and musical heroes.
The original Seldom Scene, The Country Gentlemen, Osborne Brothers, Doyle Lawson and the Stanley Brothers are among the different styles of music they have all admired and studied together throughout the years. Also steeped in the tradition of Gospel music, they pride themselves on the acapella hymns and great gospel songs that people enjoy.
Kevin Prater started his musical journey at the age of four. With the band, he plays guitar, mandolin and does vocals. The Burrows Brothers from North Carolina have recently joined the band. Adam is on fiddle and Jake on the banjo. Adam has played with Lonesome Will Mullins and Jake with Travers Chandler and Kody Norris. Adam has been with the band since Spring and Jake just came aboard. Danny Stitner plays bass, Tom Timberlake has moved to guitar and vocals. Appearing this evening along with The Kevin Prater Band is Chester Johnson and The Foggy Mountain Grass.
