Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Charlie WallerMarion, VA- A very diversified lineup of musicians will take the stage at the Lincoln Theatre in Marion, Virginia on Saturday, September 7th at 7:00 pm for another public television taping of the award winning “Song of the Mountains” concert series.

Bluegrass enthusiasts will enjoy the music of Lorraine Jordan and Carolina Road as well as the music of Randy Waller. Randy is the son of the late and legendary Charlie Waller who was an icon in bluegrass music for decades with the Country Gentlemen band. Randy continues his father’s legacy with his own unique style and voice. Randy himself is a veteran in the bluegrass world.

Lorraine Jordan and Carolina Road are favorites on the national bluegrass circuit also and will provide traditional as well as original tunes at the Song of the Mountains taping on September 7th.

The concert will also feature some Americana artists also. Clinton Collins and the Creekboys present a unique blend of Americana music, using traditional musical instruments, along with original, creative songwriting. Their musical journey guides us through places and to people that seem familiar and stories that resonate with us all. >From the rural backroads, to the places of the heart; melodies are filled with humor about relationships, faith and everyday living.

Young “rootsgrass” band Lindsay Lou & The Flatbellys has jumped into the forefront of today’s progressive roots music movement. Distinct vocals, tight harmonies, instrumental expertise, and creative arrangements are all essential characteristics of their unique sound. Instrumentally, they can turn on a dime, their arrangements showing a well-developed taste in music - based on bluegrass traditions but frequently dipping into swing jazz and popular song craft – and their sound is deftly guided by the clarion vocals of lead singer Lindsay Lou.

The Swing Sheiks will also provide some “swing-Americana” sounds to round out this wonderful concert for Song of the Mountains on September 7th.
