SATURDAY, JULY 8, 7:30pm in the Center Theater
Lisa Deaton (LD) grew up in North Carolina singing in church and in school. She also sang on the lawn mower and in the yard and on the bus - pretty much anywhere. All that singing paid off in college, when she was cast in Godspell and other musical productions.
After moving to Georgia in 1981, she began to sing with friends and over the years, learned to play some guitar and bass and recently incorporated piano. Music has brought many gifts. Lots of friendships have led to lots of different songs, a bit of travel and some good stories.
Some friends will be joining her, some will be fondly remembered, and all will be honored. Artists who will bring their talents to portions of this show are: Tom Wescoat, longtime friend and one of the earliest collaborators whose encouragement is every bit as valuable as his fingerpicking. Marty Nix, a previous Blind Date, wonderfully innovative guitar player who fits right in anywhere and plays most any style. Debbielee Whelchel, Banjo Girl, willing to try new and different arrangements and inspires with her sheer devotion to music. Jill Crunkleton, fellow devotee of music to soothe the soul, modernizer (she shakes things up!), and fearless performer.
Tickets Members $15, Non Members $18, Child (16 and under) $10.
