Concert at the Courthouse: 

Chris Cook

Friday, January 23, 2015

7-9 PM

FREE EVENT

This Concert Series is being sponsored by R & R Powder Coating, Brooks Insurance, Dallas Express Pharmacy & Gastonia Sheet Metal

The Gaston County Museum will be hosting a concert series located in the newly renovated Historic Courthouse in Dallas, NC. The series will focus on Americana style music being performed by some of the best artists in the region.

Growing up in Belmont, Chris Cook was surrounded by music from day one. As a singer-songwriter and multi-dimensional musician, he knows what he likes and what suits his needs. While comfortable playing country or rock, Chris also has a fondness for a classic R&B groove, the catchy beat of Pop, or the “from-the-gut soulfulness” of the Blues. The first thing you’ll notice is that voice. Chris Cook is a singer’s singer with a delivery that’s pure and natural, unforced but expressive, relaxed but full of inner fire. Averaging 200 dates a year, the hard-working Cook continues to tour regionally and internationally showcasing strong vocals, seasoned musicianship, a prolific writing ability and a performance of a true musical leader and entertainer.

Seating for the concert is first come, first served and the doors will open at 6:15pm. For additional information about this program, please contact Jason Luker, Programs Coordinator, at 704-922-7681 ex 105 or at Jason.Luker@gastongov.com.

Concert at the Courthouse:  Michael Reno Harrell 

Friday, February 13, 2015

7-9 PM

FREE EVENT

This Concert Series is being sponsored by R & R Powder Coating, Brooks Insurance, Dallas Express Pharmacy & Gastonia Sheet Metal

The Gaston County Museum will be hosting a concert series located in the newly renovated Historic Courthouse in Dallas, NC. The series will focus on Americana style music being performed by some of the best artist in the region.

Michael Reno Harrell is an award winning songwriter, as well as a veteran storyteller and entertainer, and he’s from the South… the Southern Appalachian Mountains to hone it a bit finer.  Michael's recordings top the Americana Music Association charts year after year. His original songs and stories have been described as “Appalachian grit and wit” but, as his writing shows, Michael’s awareness is much broader than the bounds of his boyhood home or even the Southern Experience. Having toured throughout the British Isles and much of Europe, as well as most of the US, the songs he writes and the stories he creates reflect an insight into people’s experiences that catch the ear like an old friend's voice.

Seating for the concert is first come, first served and the doors will open at 6:15pm. For additional information about this program, please contact Jason Luker, Programs Coordinator, at 704-922-7681 ex 105 or at Jason.Luker@gastongov.com.
