***An unforeseen medical issue has prompted a change in the lineup for our 19th Annual Premier Bluegrass Weekend on Friday. Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out will not be able to perform as scheduled Friday.

“Russell was treated earlier this week for a bursal abscess in his elbow. Based on his doctor’s recommendation of giving the arm and infection time to heal, Russell has decided to cancel this weekend’s appearances,” the band said in a statement Wednesday afternoon. Bluegrass favorite Lonesome River Band will be stepping in to perform in Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out’s Friday slots at 6:15 p.m. and 9:15 p.m.. LRB is celebrating its 35th anniversary this year and released its latest album, Mayhayley’s House, in June.
