The WoodSongs Coffeehouse Dalton Chapter will host the New Coon Creek Girls, a Kentucky based bluegrass band and Robinson Renard  - "The Beacon in the Valley" on Saturday, Feb. 22.  

Review for New Coon Creek Girls:

The New Coon Creek Girls were formed in 1979 by John Lair, the founder of Renfro Valley, with the intention of carrying on the traditional music that was played by the original "Coon Creek Girls" on his famous Barn Dance from 1930's-1960's; but it didn't take long for Mr. Lair to see that the New Coon Creek Girls talents would take them far beyond the walls of Renfro Valley.

After leaving the Valley they traveled extensively playing and singing their own brand of acoustic music throughout the United States and Abroad. For almost 20 years the NCCG's were a main stay at bluegrass festivals, fairs, concerts and college venues. There  have been several personnel changes over the years, but never has there been a combination of which found more popularity as a group, than that of which was together in the mid 80s. It is that lineup of women that has come together after a 27 year hiatus; Pam Gadd on vocals, banjo and guitar, Wanda Barnett on vocals, guitar and fiddle, Vicki Simmons on vocals, bass and claw hammer banjo, and Pam Perry Combs on vocals, mandolin and guitar.  

Tom Brown, WoodSongs Dalton director says of the upcoming concert, "The girls are playing just a few select dates this year, and I am thrilled that we were able to get them.  They're seasoned performers who will bring a broad repertoire of songs and a whole lot of talent to the Freight Depot."

Review for Robinson Renard - Beacon in the Valley:

Opening for the New Coon Creek Girls will be singer songwriter Robinson Renard, who performs under the name "Beacon in the Valley". A southern transplant from the Northeast, the "beacon" gains fans wherever he performs with his unforgettable voice and soulful lyrics.  

This regionally acclaimed concert series features emerging and established performers and will be held at the historic Dalton Freight Depot at 305 S. Depot Street in downtown Dalton Georgia.  The concert series is sponsored in part by the Downtown Dalton Development Authority and the Dalton Convention and Visitors Bureau.
