Bluegrass Friends Put Together an All-Star Band
for Bluegrass for Babies
“The Kowike Creek All-Star Bluegrass Band” Benefits The Children’s Hospital at Midtown Medical Center

NASHVILLE,
Tenn. (Feb. 10, 2014) -Friends, hunting buddies and bluegrass all-stars
got together last month as “The Kowike Creek All-Star Bluegrass Band”
for Bluegrass for Babies, in what’s becoming an annual tradition to
benefit The Children’s Hospital at Midtown Medical Center in Columbus,
Ga. 
“The
Kowike Creek All-Star Bluegrass Band” was comprised of Woody Platt of
the Steep Canyon Rangers on guitar; Rob McCoury from the Del McCoury
Band on banjo; Jason Carter on fiddle, also from the Del McCoury Band;
Barry Bales on bass, of Allison Krauss and Union Station and Daren
Shumaker on mandolin, known for his performances with Blue Dogs and
Ronnie Bowman. These pickers joined forces to present a first class
evening of bluegrass music on January 15 at the Rivermill Event Centre.
This year’s event drew tremendous support and grossed over $63,000
for the Children’s Hospital at Columbus Regional Health which boasts the
region’s only advanced maternity services and neonatal intensive care
unit, dedicated pediatric service and pediatric intensive care unit,
trauma center and highly regarded emergency services for children and
adults.


The
Columbus Regional Health Foundation expressed the following message of
gratitude: “’The Kowike Creek All-Star Bluegrass Band’ just blew us
away! The band graciously volunteered to be the featured entertainment
at a children’s hospital fundraising event for us, and their performance
is still the talk around town. People who didn’t have a chance to
attend have heard how amazing the band was and say they already can’t
wait for next year. The band is a joy to work with and listen to. Our
toes are still tapping and our lips are still humming their bluegrass
tunes.”
Bluegrass
for Babies was a tremendous opportunity for these musicians to join
forces for such a great cause. Woody Platt expressed the following
sentiment about the evening: “Playing with this group of musicians was
so much fun! Being able to have the chance to perform with guys from
other groups that you normally don’t get to see and pick with was such a
treat. Not only did we have a great time and a fabulous quail hunting
trip in Columbus, Ga. — we were also able to join our forces and raise
money for a great cause. it was such a ‘win win’ for everyone!”
