Well, I did it again – I forgot to send the news release to the local papers – I’m so sorry. Please pass this email onto anyone you think might be interested and let’s drum up some word of mouth support for the concerts at the Brasstown Community Center.
To round out the month, we will welcome Jimmy Wilson and Friends to entertain us with their homegrown bluegrass music on Saturday, May 27th at 7pm. Just a reminder that the doors open at 6pm. There will be food, drinks, and raffle tickets available for purchase for this year’s beautiful quilt! Bring your family and friends and let’s have fun with Jimmy and his friends!
Saturday, May 27, 2023 – Jimmy Wilson and Friends
Jimmy and his friends all love bluegrass music and have played most of their lives. Jimmy and Daniel Wilson (father and son) were part of the Wilson Family Band for many years and both live in Brasstown, NC. Greg Fleming of Otto, NC has been playing bluegrass mandolin since 1996 and is an accomplished player. Jonathan Jones of Robbinsville, NC plays a mean banjo and Jerry Hensley from Ellijay, GA has been playing fiddle for 40 years.
These local, and seasoned, players are sure to entertain us with the bluegrass heritage music we all love. Come join us in welcoming this group of friends to the Brasstown Community Center!
Doors open at 6 p.m. and the music starts at 7 p.m. Admission is $10, children under 12 are free. Hot dog and barbecue sandwich plates, homemade cobbler, ice cream and root beer floats will be available for purchase. The Brasstown Community Center is located at 255 Settawig Rd in Brasstown NC.
Fundraiser concerts are held May through August on the second and fourth Saturdays – except in July 2023 when dates had to be shifted. The center is a non-profit, and all proceeds from the concerts and facility rentals are for maintenance and upkeep of the building. Call 828-361-3040 or go to www.brasstowncommunitycenter.org for details.
On June 10th, we will welcome back the Barker Brothers Band and on June 24th, a new group will entertain us, The Blackwell Band. Save the dates and help support our fundraising efforts this year!
Just a reminder that we are still looking for someone to put together a monthly newsletter and/or maintain our Facebook page. If you are interested, just respond to this email and we will set you up with all the information you need.
