2015 Summer Concert Series
JESSE & NOAH BELLAMY / GRACE & THE VICTORY RIDERS
Saturday, August 15 • 8 pm
Two concerts wrapped up in one! Singer/songwriters Noah & Jesse Bellamy along with Grace & The Victory Riders will perform in concert as we wrap up our Summer Concert Series.
Jesse & Noah Bellamy (the sons of David Bellamy of The Bellamy Brothers) have a unique sound, incorporating their close-harmonies, impressive guitar skills, and eclectic songwriting, firmly rooted in traditionalism but with a fearless expansion of modern inference. As multi-instrumentalists and songwriters, the brothers spend hours writing, producing, and recording new music in their home studio in Nashville, Tennessee when they are not touring.
Grace (the daughter of musician Jonathan Edwards) has released two albums, Hall of Mirrors and Made For Change. She sings folk, reggae, soul and blues-style original songs. Her music is influenced by her travels around the world, which include Kenya, Senegal, Ethiopia, France, India, Jamaica and more. She currently resides in Paris, California, and New York.
*These projects are sponsored in part by the Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, the Florida Council of Arts and Culture and the State of Florida. Section 286.25, Florida Statutes
Steven Lolli, comedian
Friday, September 18 • 8 pm
Steven Lolli isn’t afraid to share his opinions. The graduate of Gaither High School (who now lives in Los Angeles) makes a living sharing them on stage with no filter and a general disdain for what he sees as an unproductive status quo in comedy.
Shaun Hopper, fingerstyle guitar
Saturday, October 17 • 8pm
Acoustic “fingerstyle” guitarist Shaun Hopper is at first glance an unassuming presence, a true southern gentleman whose humility stands in stark contrast to the prodigious talents he unveils on stage. An unparalleled master of the fret-board, Shaun merges complex melodies, harmonies and bass lines along with a one-of-a-kind mix of percussive elements, to captivate everyone within an earshot. Whether his listeners are guitar enthusiasts or not matters little, within a few seconds they soon realize that they are listening to a true virtuoso.
