The first concert is scheduled for Saturday January 31, 2015. Appearing will be the award-winning Becky Buller, an acoustic bluegrass Americana singer songwriter and Butch Ross, talented multi-instrumentalist and singer.

Originally from St. James, MN, Becky has traveled the world performing bluegrass/Americana/roots music. Her compositions can be heard on records by Ricky Skaggs, Rhonda Vincent, and Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, to name just a few. She wrote the title cut of Special Consensus' album Scratch Gravel Road, a 2013 Bluegrass Album of the Year Grammy nominee. Featured on the Spring 2012 cover of Fiddler magazine, Becky is the winner of the 2006 IBMA Album of the Year award for her work with the Daughters of Bluegrass, and was the 2001 winner of MerleFest's Chris Austin Songwriting contest. Her third solo album, 'Tween Earth and Sky, was released on the Dark Shadow Recording label in October of 2014. In addition to concerts, Becky co-hosts Thunder Radio's Bluegrass Crossroads Show on WMSR in Manchester, TN.

Butch Ross is a touring singer songwriter who is an in-demand performer at folk and dulcimer festivals throughout the U.S. and Europe. Ross, who is known for his stellar dulcimer playing has performed at such festivals as the Central Ohio Folk Festival, Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, the Lancaster (U.K.) Music Fest, and the prestigious Philadelphia Folk Festival. The dulcimer is typically used for playing simple tunes and accompanying the voice. Most people can learn a song or two within a few minutes of first encountering the instrument. Which is probably why the one phrase you'll hear a lot at a Butch Ross performance is "I didn't know you could do THAT on a mountain dulcimer!" Ross has taken a simple folk instrument and energized it with technical wizardry, inventive arrangements and a healthy dose of rock-n-roll attitude.

This regionally acclaimed concert series features emerging and established performers and will be held at Stage 123 on 123 W. Gordon Street in down town Dalton Georgia. The concert series is sponsored in part by the Downtown Dalton Development Authority and the Dalton Convention and Visitors Bureau.

Tickets for the January 31 concert are available at the Dalton Freight Depot Gift Shop, online and at the door. Please note change of venue. Please visit http://WoodsongsDalton.com/
