WoodSongs Dalton Concert Series Kicks Of The Season With Donna Ulisse And The Poor Mountain Boys Jan. 26

Wednesday, January 16, 2019

The WoodSongs Dalton 2019 Concert Series will host the award winning singer-songwriter Donna Ulisse with the Poor Mountain Boys and Spatial Effects at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 26 at The Wink Theater, 115 Crawford St. in downtown Dalton.

Opening for Donna 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, some award winning songwriters and a sometimes off the wall sense of humor," organizers said.

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 $18 and $22 at the door.
