Folk Marathon Night 2: Terri Allard Trio LIVE
Time: 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Terri Allard, Gary Green, and (this just in!) Sonny Layne will keep the music rolling along on the second night of live concerts as part of this year’s Folk Marathon. This is a free event, open to all. You can also listen on the radio (91.1 FM) or on-line, and even video stream it at WTJU’s Facebook page or YouTube channel. But concerts always sound better with you as part of the studio audience.
Award-winning singer-songwriter, Terri Allard, combines sultry sweetness and grit with an intimately personal writing style, lending a strong, authentic voice to the Americana music scene. On each of Allard’s five notable recordings, her original material chronicles the highs and lows of living day-to-day. Her co-writing credits include collaborating with five-time Grammy Award winner Mary Chapin Carpenter on the stirring ode Anna Carolyn. She’s also garnered a WAMMIE (Washington Area Music Award) for Best Female Country Vocalist.
Gary Green is a world champion harmonica player based out of Charlottesville, Virginia. His long history in music includes work with artists Terri Allard, Scott Kirby, Cleve Francis, Calie Garrett, William Walter and Peyton Tochterman with recent guest appearances with Jimmy Buffett, Keith Sykes, Peter Mayer, and Brendan Mayer.
Many Central Virginia folks remember Sonny Layne as the bass player for Johnny Sportcoat and the Casuals. He’s played with Terri since ’95 and is also the bass player for the Buzzard Hollow Boys who will be in Thursday night for the Folk Marathon!
