Ozark Folk Center Evening Concerts – Feature Concert – Bill & The Belles
July 7, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$12
Two hour concerts by musicians from Mountain View and vicinity. Square dancing as danced in the area for over 100 years is performed at the beginning of the evening and right after intermission.
What began as a project to explore the space created between hillbilly and urban, between vaudeville and down home, has arrived somewhere entirely new. Bill and the Belles offers a contemporary reimagining of a bygone era, breathing new life into the sounds of early country music. At the foothills of the Blue Ridge and the forefront of old-time music, Bill and the Belles continue to further the music traditions of their region. From sentimental Southern ballads to the popular songs of Tin Pan Alley to regional fiddle breakdowns, a Bill and the Belles show is a celebration of the diversity country music once represented.
Musicians include: Gresham McMillon, Joe Jewell, Kai Perry, Mary Parker, Brad Apple, Pam Setser
