QuaranTunes @Noon will feature Lon Eldridge with a free streaming concert on Friday.

Review for Lon Eldridge:

Lon Eldridge is often said to have talent and style well beyond his years. Lon has toured both the USA and Europe, taking his unique blend of traditional pre-war blues, ragtime, and swing to whole new audiences. This is a show (and a mustache) you definitely don't want to miss.

Lon began playing guitar at the age of 13, and it quickly grew into a passion and an obsession. Lon's playing style is one of intricate fingerstyle guitar work, evoking the spirits of Mississippi John Hurt, Robert Johnson, Blind Blake and countless other musical masters. Alongside this is a calm, cool stage demeanor that would lead you to believe he's actually sitting in an arm chair in your living room, rather than on a stage. An avid collector of 78rpm records, Lon spends most of his free time tucked away with his ear glued to a Victrola horn.

The WoodSongs Dalton 2020 Concert series is working with regional and national musical artists to produce QuaranTunes @Noon, a livestreaming performance via the WoodSongs Dalton Facebook page. Upcoming performances will feature Aubrey Eisenman May 8, Nu-Blu’s Daniel and Carolyn Routh May 15, Anthony Quails May 22, and Kelli Johnson on May 29.

The concerts can be accessed at https://www.facebook.com/woodsongsdaltonconcerts/ at noon EDT on Fridays during May.

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

Proceeds from the concert will benefit the DEO Clinic, a 501(c)3 that provides medical care to low income uninsured individuals. 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.

Roy Exum: Two Inches From Hell

By ordinary standards it might be best described as one of life’s worst 1-2 punches, a pair of hard, personal blows that drop you to your knees. True, each devastating blow was uncommonly back to back. But, no, when I learned Wednesday morning that college football icon Johnny Majors had died just some 48 hours after another legend, Auburn’s Pat Dye, it was as though I’d been hit ...
