Rik Townend at Under Ground Theatre

Another first will be chalked tomorrow (Saturday) at the Eastbourne Under Ground Theatre – when the regular (10am-noon) music entertainment will include a barn dance on stage!

The star of the show will be bluegrass multi-instrumentalist Rick Townend, who prides himself on having started the UK’s first school bluegrass band The Echo Mountain Boys in 1962. He is a master of the banjo, guitar, fiddle, mandolin, steel guitar and autoharp, and has played with many bands – including Sussex-based Grassroots and the tribute band, The Kent Carters.
