BCTMA’s Summer Regional Concert Series – LaNelle Davis and Tommy Edwards
August 8 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT
Stellar Musicians Tommy Edwards and LaNelle Davis perform at Turnage Theatre Summer Concert Series on August 8. The show runs 7:00-9:00 PM. Donations suggested. Sponsored by BCTMA.
Tommy Edwards and LaNelle Davis are seasoned performers of traditional southern music, singing and playing a variety of instruments paying homage to the sounds and voices of the late greats of the past.
Edwards is lead singer and guitarist for The Bluegrass Experience, and host of Life 103.1′s “Bluegrass Saturday Night.” A professional performer for over 35 years, Edwards has twice been named World Champion Bluegrass Guitarist. He also served for 30 years in the Randolph and Chatham county schools as a teacher, coach and administrator.
Davis’s love of traditional music is rooted in dance. She called numerous square dances in NC and toured with The Apple Chill and Cane Creek Cloggers in the early 1980s. As a member of award winning old-time band, Big Medicine, she performed and recorded extensively. Retired from 30 years with Durham County Social Services, she now splits her time between playing music and making mosaics.
Family Friendly! Sponsored by the Beaufort County Traditional Music Association.
The concert is held at the Turnage Theatre, 150 W. Main Street, Washington, NC.
The Beaufort County Traditional Music Association is a grass roots non-profit organization that has promoted the performance and enjoyment of traditional music in Eastern NC for ten years. Thanks to the assistance and oversight of Arts of the Pamlico, the BCTMA has grown into an active group of musicians and supporters dedicated to the nurturing and sharing of their love of traditional music.
