The Sweetwater County Concert Association has four concerts slated for the 2017-2018 season.
The first concert, set for next Monday, September 25, at the Rock Spring High School auditorium, at 7 pm., will feature brothers Jeb and Jock Guthrie performing as “Scarborough Fair”.
Through songs, stories, trivia and humor, the brothers pay homage to the music of Simon & Garfunkel, and playfully engage the audience along the way.
The show highlights the brothers’ deep spiritual connection to this music, and to the 60s, the period that made it all happen. The New York-based musicians perform this tribute with startling authenticity in an “unplugged” acoustic style.
The next concert in the series is scheduled for Thursday, December 7, at the Broadway Theater, at 7 pm. Derik Nelson & Family’s signature sound features velvety three-part vocal harmonies that only a family can deliver.
Siblings Derik, Riana, and Dalten have been performing together since childhood. The Nelson siblings have garnered over 3.5 million views on YouTube, toured over 60 locations across the West Coast, and reached over 12,000 students with educational music workshops and assemblies.
Derik appeared regularly as the lead guitarist on television’s “Glee”, among other shows. Their concert features pristine sound, a state of the art light show, and an integrated 20-foot video display.
The next performance is set for Wednesday, March 14, 2018 at the Broadway Theater, at 7 pm., and will showcase the western swing trio Hot Club of Cowtown. Since its beginnings in the 1990s, its star has continued to rise as its reputation for jaw-dropping virtuosity and unforgettable live shows has become the band’s global brand.
Lauded for its “down-home melodies and exuberant improvisation” (The Times, London), the Hot Club of Cowtown is called “a pretty much perfect country trio at the very top of their game” by the Belfast Telegraph.
The final concert of the season will feature Cahal Dunne on Friday, April 27, 2018 at Green River Lincoln Middle School, at 7 pm.
Cahal Dunne is a composer, pianist, comedian, story teller and television personality from County Cork, Ireland who won Ireland’s National Song Contest. His song “Happy Man”, became number one in Europe and Ireland with record sales topping the 250,000 mark.
