Doug MacLeod and Walter Parks

MacLeod is known for his superb songwriting, guitar wizardry, warm soulful vocals, wit and unforgettable live performances. At the heart of a Doug MacLeod performance is his knack for storytelling, bringing characters-from the faceless to the legendary-to strikingly real life. Doug is a multiple Blues Music Award winner, most recently the 2017 Blues Music Award for Acoustic Artist Of The Year and the Blues Blast Music Award for Male Artist Of The Year.

For ten years, musician and writer Walter Parks toured the world and recorded as sideman/guitarist to Woodstock legend Richie Havens. Parks, a Florida native, presents a creative mix of swamp blues, folk and jazz delivered sometimes in an ambient style and sometime in a gritty-rootsy style. Parks’ repertoire is half originals and half covers that he performs on acoustic and electric guitars.

The Farmer & Adele and Russ Varnell and His Too Country Band

September 28 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm The Cary Theater, 122 East Chatham Street

With the sounds of classic songwriting in their music and the future in their sights, The Farmer & Adele are reimaging the modern cowboy/cowgirl while respecting its beginnings. Based out of Nashville, TN, The Farmer & Adele – led by Grace Adele and Keenan Wade – leads the pack of a new wave of musicians revitalizing western swing music. With a star-studded record, award nominations and their own morning radio show, The Farmer & Adele are a one-two punch of classic meets modern.

Russ musical influences are: George Jones, Merle Haggard, Elvis, Hank Sr., Ernest Tubb, Del Reeves, Don Rich, Red Simpson and most of all the Legendary Buck Owens! “I’m 100% a traditional real country singer” says Russ. “Nothing makes me more upset and let down than when I see and hear singers in our industry who claim to be country and then watch them sound like a rock or anything but a country singer!” “I sometimes think that my generation doesn’t even know what a country singer supposed to sound like.”

Newberry & Verch

December 8 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm The Cary Theater, 122 East Chatham Street

Joe Newberry and April Verch are masters of their traditions. Tunes, ballads, step dancing, and original songs by way of Canada and the Ozarks ring like silver and shine like gold.
