Hello Friends of the Brasstown Community Center,
The Brasstown Community Civic Center Summer Concert Series is proud to present Georgia Mail on Saturday July 13th, 2019. This will be the first time this group performs for us, so we hope you will all come out and make them feel welcome!
Georgia Mail is a new group whose members are from North Georgia and Western NC. Their focus is old-fashioned, traditional bluegrass music. Their sound is based on the strong, soulful lead singing of Jeff Haynes, who also plays rhythm guitar. Kerry Warbington, from Cleveland, GA, is well respected as one of the best banjo pickers in the region. Scott Ferguson from Warne, NC plays fiddle in the old style which stays close to the melody and draws on the blues. He also sings baritone. William Pruitt from Dahlonega GA is a driving dynamic mandolin player. And last but not least, Wyatt Turner from Clarksville GA. Wyatt sings tenor and keeps it all together on the upright bass.
