The Traditional Voices Group is pleased to announce that singer-songwriter Amythyst Kiah will headline the 2020 RiddleFest Concert on June 20. The Griffith Chapel Singers, a small group of Chapel elders who sing old-time gospel songs, will lead off the evening followed by the Old Time Ramblers, a string band of student-musicians from the Bluegrass, Old-Time, and Country Music Studies program at East Tennessee State University. The concert begins at 7 PM in the Burnsville Town Center, 6 South Main Street, Burnsville, NC. Tickets are $20 and will be available beginning in late May online at www.Eventbrite.com or by calling the Town Center at 828-682-7209.
RiddleFest is produced annually by Traditional Voices Group as a tribute to Lesley Riddle, an African-American musician from Yancey County NC, who had a great influence on the development of early country music through his association with A.P. Carter and the Carter Family.
