The WoodSongs Dalton 2020 March concert will feature the award-winning Becky Buller on Friday on the WoodSongs Dalton Facebook page.

The concert series, now in its tenth year, has provided the North Georgia area with family-friendly music while benefiting local non-profits.

The concert – QuarinTunes at Noon will begin at noon Friday.

WoodSongs Dalton director Tom Brown said, “I know it’s not quite the same as seeing a performer at a live concert, but I am glad that we have the technology to stream a live show into people’s homes.”

The two-time Grammy award-winning songwriter is also the winner of eight IBMA awards including 2016 awards for Fiddler and Female Vocalist of the Year, as well as 2018 IBMA Gospel Recorded Performance and Recorded Event of the Year. Becky has had songs recorded by The Travelin’ McCoury’s, The Infamous Stringdusters, Ricky Skaggs, Rhonda Vincent, Special Consensus, Doyle Lawson, and many more.  

The concert can be accessed at https://www.facebook.com/woodsongsdaltonconcerts/ on Friday at noon.

Proceeds from the concert will benefit the DEO Clinic, a 501(c)3 that provides medical care to low income uninsured individuals. Proceeds up to $2,000 will be matched by an anonymous donor. Donations to the DEO Clinic can be made online at www.deoclinic.org or mailed to the DEO Clinic at P.O. Box 814 Dalton, GA 30722

The concert series is sponsored in part by the Dalton Convention and Visitors Bureau, Friends of WoodSongs, and numerous local business sponsors.
