The WoodSongs Dalton 2018 Concert Series will host the award winning singer, songwriter, and fiddler Becky Buller and the Becky Buller Band and Spatial Effects at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 27, at The Wink Theater in downtown Dalton.  

Review for Becky Buller:

Becky Buller’s first appearance as a solo artist was in Dalton in January of 2015 and since that time she has received five awards from the International Bluegrass Music Association. In 2016, Becky Buller made bluegrass music history by becoming the first person ever to win in both instrumental and vocal categories at the International Bluegrass Music Association Awards. A prolific songwriter whose songs have been recorded by top artists was also named 2015 IBMA songwriter of the year received an award for Recorded Event of the Year with her interpretation of Bill Monroe’s Southern Flavor. Since 2015, the Becky Buller Band has toured extensively throughout the United States and Canada.  

Review for Spatial Effects:

Opening for the Becky Buller Band will be Spatial Effects, a regional band that plays a mix of bluegrass, gospel, and their “slightly bent” originals. The unique musical fare of Spatial Effects sets them apart from traditional bluegrass bands. The recipe for their brand of bluegrass music includes several degrees in music, creativity, and a sometimes off the wall sense of humor.  

The January concert will also honor the Girl Scouts of America in Northwest Georgia. Girls Scouts will be admitted to the concert free if wearing their sash or vest.  

Advance tickets for the January concert are available at the Dalton Freight Depot Gift Shop, Bigham Discount Music, online at www.woodsongsdalton.com, and at the door. Advance tickets are $15 and $18 at the door.  

The concert series features emerging and established performers of Americana, Country, and Bluegrass music, whose performances also benefit local non-profits. Many of the performers over the years have been Grammy nominees and recipients and or received recognition for their talents by the International Bluegrass Music Association. The concert series will be held at the Wink Theater at 115 Crawford St. in the heart of downtown Dalton.

WoodSongs Dalton is sponsored in part by the Downtown Dalton Development Authority and the Dalton Convention and Visitors Bureau. Proceeds from the concert will benefit the DEO Clinic, a 501 (c)3 nonprofit medical clinic that provides medical care to low income uninsured residents of Whitfield and Murray Counties. Proceeds up to $2,500 will be matched by Modern Woodmen of America to benefit DEO Clinic.

Jeff Styles, I Believe You - And Response (2)

I am glad that Jeff Styles presented the details of the event on his website.  Just because the government alleges a crime does not mean guilty. A criminal charge is an allegation by government. Sure, that allegation can be very serious, but the charge is still an unproven allegation until a court of law and Lady Justice has her review of the proof.  A person gets ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: ‘The Cake Is Baked’

If all goes well, and as expected, Hamilton County Chancellor Jeff Atherton will tell a group representing the Democratic Party not to ever again clutter his office or his courtroom with such a childish amount of political poppycock as will be brought on display tomorrow.
