Southern Belle perform Appalachian music in association with the FSB and Rotary Club of Taunton.

Tickets at £9/8 online. £10/9 on the door.

Doors 7.30pm. Start 8pm

Southern Belle will perform a selection of old time songs and tunes originating from the Appalachian Mountains. Old time music is pre-bluegrass with the roots originating from African, Irish and European workers that merged their own genres together in the US using the banjo and fiddle. The fiddle and banjo is then accompanied by other instruments and are performed as ‘front porch’ music for family and friends to dance and other informal gatherings.

Old time existed in the 1800s and was not given its name until 1920s. Bluegrass evolved from old time to be performed and became more commercial using advance musical technique with improvisation and different picking patterns on the banjo colouring melodies to provide entertainment suitable for the stage.


Rotary is a global network of 1.2 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who come together to make positive, lasting change in communities at home and abroad.

Solving real problems takes real commitment and vision. For more than 110 years, Rotary members have used their passion, energy, and intelligence to take action on sustainable projects. From literacy and peace to water and health, we are always working to better our world, and we stay committed to the end.
