APRIL 30, 2015 - 8pm
THE CROOKED ROAD w Whitetop Mountain Band, Gayheart, Freeman & Lacy, and Adam McPeak & Mountain Thunder – CONFIRMED
$18 Gold, $16 Silver, $13 Student
A place of beauty – a place of song. This is The Crooked Road.
Experience first-hand how music is woven into the rich tapestry of tradition in Southwest Virginia.
Whitetop Mountain Band – The Whitetop Mountain Band is one of the busiest groups in the Appalachians, performing concerts and for dances in America and abroad. They have deep roots in mountain music and their members have done much to preserve the Whitetop region’s style of old time fiddling and banjo picking. They are a tour de force of playing, singing, and dance, and they are gifted entertainers as well.
Gayheart, Freeman, & Lacy - Willard Gayheart, Scott Freeman, and Edwin Lacy are consummate musicians, storytellers, teachers, songwriters and tunesmiths, and to say they are versatile would be an impressive understatement. Though grounded in old-time tradition, their music is adventurous and ready to roam the edges for new sounds and songs that fit within the tradition. Hearing Edwin play Lara’s Theme from the movie Dr. Zhivago on clawhammer banjo is a great convincer. Scott Freeman plays mandolin, guitar, and fiddle and has a smooth baritone vocal style that he uses to great effect on his own songs as wells as those of others. Willard, a renowned pencil artist, is a hugely gifted songwriter that captures Appalachian life in song like a firefly in a jar for all to marvel at.
Adam McPeak & Mountain Thunder – In the 1970s, the McPeak Brothers from Wytheville left a lasting mark with their recordings of contemporary material in a bluegrass format. In a great example of what heritage music is all about, young mandolinist Adam McPeak is carrying forward the family tradition with his own band. Mike McPeak now plays the proud papa in his son’s band, and the music is as dynamic as ever, featuring excellent harmony vocals and interesting repertoire that fans have always associated with the family’s music.

MAY 2, 2015 - 3pm Matinee
NOT SO SILENT CINEMA presents CHARLIE CHAPLIN – CONFIRMED
$10 General Admission, $6 Children
Not So Silent Cinema is excited to be rolling out new scores written by founding member and leader, Brendan Cooney, for some classic short films that Charlie Chaplin made for Mutual Film Company in 1916 and 1917. The Mutual comedies display Chaplin at an exciting point in the development of his style.
Brendan has sought to capture the devilish narcissism of Chaplin’s character through a series of musical ‘jokes’. As Chaplin’s gags often involve Chaplin entering a scene of civility and leaving it in mayhem, Brendan has chosen to present a selection of recognizable melodies and pieces that he will gradually deconstruct in a manic and devious fashion, such as transforming Chopin’s “Minute Waltz” into a full-tilt boogie. This approach also references the common performance practice of silent-film accompanists during Chaplin’s time. Brendan’s scores may sound like a silent-film accompanist who has slowly come undone, or perhaps gotten a bit tipsy!
