Show for Joe Memorial Music Festival on Sept. 1 moving from Blue Ridge Music Center
 to Rex Theater

http://www.blueridgemusiccenter.org/show-for-joe-2017.htm

Heavy rain and thunderstorms in forecast for Friday prompt concert relocation

(GALAX, VA) — Due to forecasts for heavy rain and thunderstorms on Friday, September 1, the Blue Ridge Music Center is moving the second annual Show for Joe Memorial Music Festival to The Rex Theater in downtown Galax. A workshop by Fred Bartenstein will now be hosted at the Chestnut Creek School of the Arts.

“We’re grateful to work with these terrific partners to ensure the workshop and show will go on in tribute to Joe Wilson,” said Richard Emmett, program director for the Blue Ridge Music Center. “We also want to give a special thanks to Blue 58 for switching up their scheduled performance and sharing the stage at the Rex Theater so that the Show for Joe can come in out of the expected rain.”

The Band of Ruhks (Ronnie Bowman, Don Rigsby and Kenny Smith), Rob Ickes & Trey Hensley, Linda Lay, Whitetop Mountain Band, Blue 58, and special guests Sherman Holmes and The Ingramettes will take the stage to celebrate the life and legacy of the late Joe Wilson, a champion of traditional music from the mountains and around the globe.

From 2 to 3:30 p.m., the public is invited to attend a free workshop led by Fred Bartenstein, editor of Roots Music in America: Collected Writings of Joe Wilson and Lucky Joe’s Namesake: The Extraordinary Life and Observations of Joe Wilson. The session will feature performances by musical guests. Seating is limited and offered on a first come, first serve basis at Chestnut Creek School of the Arts.

The concert kicks off at 4 p.m., bringing together revered talents, including bluegrass supergroup, Band of Rhuks, born out of the critically acclaimed Lonesome River Band, and Sherman Holmes, known for his role in The Holmes Brothers, a group lauded for its uniquely Southern fusion of rhythm & blues, gospel, soul, and country. The Ingramettes, founded more than 50 years ago by the late Maggie Ingram, continue to endure as one of Virginia’s premier gospel ensembles. All of the performers represent musical genres championed by Wilson for their authenticity and connections to their communities.

The music of Linda Lay, The Whitetop Mountain Band, and Blue 58 is representative of the connections to the family- and placed-based musical traditions of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The bluegrass and string band styles of music carried forward by these groups have been woven into the cultural fabric and traditions of Appalachia where families and communities have passed on this uniquely authentic strand of American music for many generations.

Listeners can tune in for a portion of the show live from 7 to 9 p.m., Friday, on Blue Ridge Backroads broadcasted by Classic Country 98.1 FM WBRF.

In 2015, the music community lost visionary Joe Wilson, who along with others helped create the Blue Ridge Music Center. From his mentoring of musicians to his influential work with the National Council for the Traditional Arts, Wilson’s passion for the music of the Blue Ridge Mountains was immeasurable. He produced festivals, recordings, national and international tours, and helped create the Roots of American Music exhibit housed at the Music Center. A native of Tennessee, Wilson was instrumental in the development of The Blue Ridge Music Trails and The Crooked Road: Virginia’s Heritage Music Trails. He was also the author of A Guide to the Crooked Road: Virginia's Heritage Music Trail.

The second annual Show for Joe is made possible in part by a gift from musicians Jerry Douglas, Alison Krauss, Ricky Skaggs, and The Whites, all of whom were befriended by Joe Wilson, who positively impacted their careers. The memorial showcase is presented in partnership with the Virginia Folklife Program and is sponsored by 98.1 WBRF Classic Country and Virginia is for Lovers.
