    An Evening with Buddy Holly: featuring Robbie Limon

    Alleghany
    510 Main Street
    Clifton Forge, VA 2442

    Robbie Limon won critical acclaim for his uncanny ability to replicate the vocal characteristics of period singers. Robbie has wowed audiences throughout the east coast and won numerous awards for his work in the syndicated theatrical productions of stage musicals about Buddy Holly. This performance is based on a true story, happening in Greenwich Village, New York, in the late months of 1958. The audience is present during Buddy's band rehearsal as he prepares for the mid-western cavalcade of performers known as The Winter Dance Party of 1959. The stage vibe is intimate as Buddy's dialogue is totally directed at the audience; the tone is conversational and responsive to questions raised during the pre-show warm-up. The show's premise provides context for an evening of Holly favorites as well as those of the Everly Brothers and Little Richard. Are we joking? No, these artists were friends of Buddy and he pays tribute to these influences in the show. This unique format is certain to give an inside look at a life which has been described as “eighteen months of fame and generations of influence”. This performance is part of the SONA Bank Concert Series.

    Everyone is still talking about last year's performance by this talented young artist. By popular demand, we are bringing him for a Saturday night concert event sure to amaze. Take a journey back in time to the life and music of "The Man in Black" performed by Cash Unchained. The band has been nationally sought after and has toured all over the U.S., bringing the sights and sounds of the legendary Johnny Cash. Johnny Cash may not have been the greatest singer or musical technician, but his sound was unforgettable. Steady like a train, sharp as a razor, with the perfect blend of country, rock 'n' roll, and folk music, Cash paved the way for artists of all genres for years to come. Without Johnny Cash, we wouldn't have some of the finest music we've all enjoyed over the past 6 decades. Performed by some of the finest musicians in the state of Virginia, James Tamelcoff III captures Cash's trademark baritone voice, while his band delivers the infectious, driving rhythm of the Tennessee Three. This performance is part of the SONA Bank Concert Series.

    Clifton Forge, VA 2442

    Robbie Limon won critical acclaim for his uncanny ability to replicate the vocal characteristics of period singers. Robbie has wowed audiences throughout the east coast and won numerous awards for his work in the syndicated theatrical productions of stage musicals about Buddy Holly. This performance is based on a true story, happening in Greenwich Village, New York, in the late months of 1958. The audience is present during Buddy's band rehearsal as he prepares for the mid-western cavalcade of performers known as The Winter Dance Party of 1959. The stage vibe is intimate as Buddy's dialogue is totally directed at the audience; the tone is conversational and responsive to questions raised during the pre-show warm-up. The show's premise provides context for an evening of Holly favorites as well as those of the Everly Brothers and Little Richard. Are we joking? No, these artists were friends of Buddy and he pays tribute to these influences in the show. This unique format is certain to give an inside look at a life which has been described as “eighteen months of fame and generations of influence”. This performance is part of the SONA Bank Concert Series.

    Everyone is still talking about last year's performance by this talented young artist. By popular demand, we are bringing him for a Saturday night concert event sure to amaze. Take a journey back in time to the life and music of "The Man in Black" performed by Cash Unchained. The band has been nationally sought after and has toured all over the U.S., bringing the sights and sounds of the legendary Johnny Cash. Johnny Cash may not have been the greatest singer or musical technician, but his sound was unforgettable. Steady like a train, sharp as a razor, with the perfect blend of country, rock 'n' roll, and folk music, Cash paved the way for artists of all genres for years to come. Without Johnny Cash, we wouldn't have some of the finest music we've all enjoyed over the past 6 decades. Performed by some of the finest musicians in the state of Virginia, James Tamelcoff III captures Cash's trademark baritone voice, while his band delivers the infectious, driving rhythm of the Tennessee Three. This performance is part of the SONA Bank Concert Series.
