Coffee House Music Series

Friday, June 17:  The Free Radicals

All honkytonk, all the time! The Free Radicals play country music the way it was meant to be played: no tight jeans, no orchestral background music, just great melodies, virtuoso instrumentals, three chords, and the truth. The "Rads" play a lot of music from the forties and fifties, but don't shy from more contemporary songs as long as they're good ones. They promise to get your feet moving and maybe even get you singing along. 

The Free Radicals are Bob Taylor, Carolyn Stone, Bill Staton, and Mitch Russell.

The show starts at 7:30pm, in the Rockfish Lounge. $7 cover. Refreshments available.

Ongoing:  Nelson County Community Orchestra

The Rockfish Valley Community Orchestra meets every Monday at 7pm in the Rockfish Lounge.  Orchestra meetings are open to anyone who would like to join.  If you play--or used to play--an orchestra instrument and would like to get back to learning and performing music in a welcoming and engaging environment, come and join us and our conductor, Philip Clark.

__________________________________________

The Wild Geese have all performed together for many years in the Charlottesville Symphony and/or taught at  the University of Virginia. They have all been active musicians in orchestras and chamber music groups in central Virginia, and throughout the US  and in Europe.

Each of The Wild Geese programs offers music from a specific time and place within the European Baroque tradition of the trio sonata repertoire. The current program, titled “Purcell’s London,” explores the soundscape of London during late 17th and early 18th centuries, and examines how its composers came to be so cosmopolitan in their approach to musical composition.  

Members include Susan Black, formerly concertmaster of the Waynesboro Symphony and currently concertmaster of the Virginia Consort Orchestra. Nancy Garlick taught and performed clarinet with the University of Virginia for many years.  Prior to that she played with the New Haven Symphony and taught at The College of Wooster.  Content Sablinsky, keyboardist, also taught at UVA for many years, and was pianist with the New Orleans Symphony. A highly sought-after accompanist, she has appeared in many recitals and was recently invited to adjudicate in China.  Lynanne Wilson, cellist, currently performs with the orchestras of Lynchburg, Shenandoah, the Oratorio Society and Virginia Consort, as well as many chamber music groups. 

Coming March 20: Jim Lilly & SunnySide

Bringing you Pre-Bluegrass, Classic Country and Gospel Music with a generous portion of enthusiasm!

Jim Lilly & SunnySide perform old-time/traditional roots music that spans the years from the 1840s to the 1950s, classic country tunes of the 50s and 60s, and a variety of Gospel tunes. Carol Phillips (autoharp) contributes her love of the Original Carter Family; Jim Lilly (acoustic guitar) adds the flare of his early love for old-time mountain music; and Betty Calvert (bass) brings forth her love of the classic country tunes.  Together this group gives the beauty of old-time music a fresh new twist.

7:30pm, $7 cover, in the Rockfish Lounge.
