Mike Seeger Tribute Concert - FREE

Saturday, July 2, 2011
Lime Kiln Theater (Lexington, VA)
Gates/concessions open at 4 pm

It's a one-day mini-festival honoring Mike Seeger (1933-2009), and admission is free. Lime Kiln Theater is offering the community this event to celebrate Mike's legacy.

4:15 - Bruce Clark & his Saw Mill Band--Mike's friend and local treasure Bruce just turned 90; he's as upright & graceful as ever and just as engaging on stage

5:30 - Backstep--from around Mt Airy, North Carolina, old friend Chester McMillian and two younger musicians with old roots carry on the great Round Peak tradition

6:45 - Jones & Leva--Carol Elizabeth and James are singing together again just for this occasion:  dear friends well-known here and afar for their beautiful songs and sounds

8:00 - Slate Mountain Ramblers--a North Carolina family dance band with a distinctive driving, sparkling sound:  Marsha Bowman Todd is one of the banjo players featured on Mike's last documentary project (now being finished by others), and Barbara Bowman calls figures.
