You may have heard that Dave Evans is no longer touring but fortunately that is no longer true!

On October 13 Dave informed us on WMMT 88.7 FM radio that he would be retiring from any further tours. But about a week later on October 20 Dave announced that he would not be retiring and in fact he is planning a big comeback in 2011.

I talked with Dave yesterday and he tells me that he does have some shows scheduled for 2011 and he is looking for more.

So far on the schedule for Dave Evans:

May 26 2011 in McClure, Virginia at the McClure Virginia Home coming festival

August 11 2011 in Crockett, Kentucky for the Kentucky Ridge Runners Clarence Kelly Homecoming Festival

November 20, 2011 Plain City, Ohio for a show by Dallas Meyers

This is just the beginning and by the time 2011 rolls around there will be more shows scheduled.

Dave Evans also owns the Bluegrass Palace, a live bluegrass music venue and restaurant, located next to the Watts Volunteer Fire Department on Ky Rt 15 in Watts, Kentucky (Near Jackson).

    I would like to know how to get information on where or if Dave Evans is still playing at. My uncle is his #1 fan and will travel to see him. Even if it is at The Bluegrass Palace. Also a good phone # for the Palace would be great if it is still open, please respond soon! THANKS
