August 9th: Laura Boosinger and Josh Gofoth
This is a gathering concert nobody should miss, especially lovers of traditional songs, ballads and stories. Individually, these two explore the roots of Appalachian music just about as well as it can be done, but together in a duo setting they are a force of nature. The material they cover is simply outstanding, the stories are compelling and both the harmonies and musicianship are impeccable.
The event is free and family friendly, but donations are appreciated and essential to presenting the concert series in the Stella Center. A $10 per person donation would be appreciated.
Accessible entry and an elevator are available through the ground-level door. Free parking is available adjacent to the Stella Center.
