Dallas Wesley & the Lost Highway Band

Title: Dallas Wesley & the Lost Highway Band
Description: From the spectacularly successful Live Arts production of “Hank Williams: Lost Highway”, Dallas Wesley and the Drifting Cowboys bring the music of Hank Williams to our stage. If you saw the performance, you know that Dallas does Hank as well as Hank himself. And, like us, you most likely left the show wanting more. We are very pleased to present Dallas Wesley and the “Drifting Cowboys” (Thomas Gunn, Bill Staton, Bahlmann Abbot and Jeffrey Justice) for an evening of nothing but Hank’s music.

“Just as Williams is described, Wesley (a Lynchburg-based singer-songwriter) has the dark, beady eyes Williams was known for, could easily “change clothes in a shotgun barrel,” and has the yodel to prove it. His Driftin’ Cowboys—Thomas Gunn on Bass, Jeffrey Justice on Fiddle, Bill Staton on guitar and Bahlmann Abbott on pedal steel—sound like the real deal.” —C-ville Weekly Review

The show starts at 8pm/$10.
Start Time: 8:00

Gospel

Dec 11, 2010   //   by admin   //   Music Glossary  //  Comments Off on Gospel

Gospel music is music that is written to express either personal or a communal belief regarding Christian life, as well as (in terms of the varying music styles) to give a Christian alternative to mainstream secular music.

Like other forms of Christian music the creation, performance, significance, and even the definition of Gospel music varies according to culture and social context. Gospel music is composed and performed for many purposes, including aesthetic pleasure, religious or ceremonial purposes, and as an entertainment product for the marketplace. However, a common theme of most Gospel music is praise, worship or thanks to God, Christ, or the Holy Spirit.

Blues

The Blues is a vocal and instrumental form of music based on the use of the blue notes. It emerged as an accessible form of self-expression in African-American communities of the United States from spirituals, work songs, field hollers, shouts and chants, and rhymed simple narrative ballads.[1] The use of blue notes and the prominence of call-and-response patterns in the music and lyrics are indicative of African influence.

The blues influenced later American and Western popular music, as it became the roots of jazz, rhythm and blues, bluegrass and rock and roll. In the 1960s and 1970s, a hybrid form called blues rock developed from the combining of blues with various rock and roll forms.
