Webb Center rounds up western, country and bluegrass

Now in its twelfth season, the Webb Center is presenting the top performing artists in western, country, bluegrass and folk music.

Marty Stuart performs traditional country and honky tonk with his Fabulous Superlatives in April.

In January, Moe Bandy and Rhonda Vincent are teaming up for one night of classic country and authentic bluegrass music. Bandy was of the most popular country singers of the 1970s, with a long string of hits including “Bandy the Rodeo Clown” and “Two Lonely People.” Named “The Queen of Bluegrass,” Vincent was awarded the IBMA Female Vocalist of the Year for seven consecutive years. With a full band, Moe and Rhonda bring outstanding instrumentals and vocals to the stage.

Kicking off the 65th Annual Gold Rush Days in February, Riders In The Sky have been keeping the musical traditions of Gene Autry and Roy Rogers alive for over 30 years. The troubadours take listeners back to a carefree time with songs about the daily life of a cowboy, intertwined with humorous tall tales and legendary wit. The Riders will be joined onstage by actor Wilford Brimley.

Canadian folk duo Dala, made up of Amanda Walther and Sheila Carabine, sing and write in harmony best described as angelic. With a fresh set of acoustic folk classics and original songs that are both catchy and insightful, Dala creates lush harmonies that have become their trademark. Performing in February, the duo is equally entertaining between songs, telling funny and down to earth stories that make every show unique.

John Schneider & Tom Wopat are best known as Bo & Luke Duke from the legendary television series The Dukes of Hazzard, but are both multi-talented and versatile performers. See them live in concert swapping stories and singing songs from their solo careers, all backed by a full band. Featuring Broadway, pop and country songs such as: “The Boys are Back in Town,” “Don’t Fence Me In.”

Four time Grammy Award-winner Marty Stuarthas been acknowledged as one of the most accomplished singers in country music by mastering every musical style. Stuart had a bluegrass stint with Lester Flatt in the ‘70s; spent six years with Johnny Cash in the ‘80s; then came up with his own smash “hillbilly rock” hits of the 90’s. With the talented Fabulous Superlatives along for the ride, this singer-songwriter lights up the stage in April with honky tonk and traditional country music.
