Renowned musician James Leva will stop by during the second hour of Folk & Beyond on Thursday, June 21, to discuss his original musical, "A Kindly Visitation.", about the late Tommy Jarrell.   James and three other highly regarded musician friends will be performing the musical at the Theater at Lime Kiln on Saturday, June 30, and Sunday, July 1.  If we are lucky, James may even bring along an instrument or two...

This musical biography explores the life and times of legendary old-time fiddle player, Tommy Jarrell and is performed by world-renowned multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter and playwright, James Leva; by dancer Ira Bernstein; by Riley Baugus who has toured with Willie Nelson and Alison Krauss, and by local virtuoso Danny Knicely, who has toured with Tony Rice and Vassar Clements. This one-of-a-kind performance reveals the cultural roots of Appalachian music with lots of humor and plenty of traditional music performed by some of our nation's finest acoustic musicians.
