The Patrick County Music Association (PCMA) will kick off its first show of the year with the Patrick County High School (PCHS) Praise and Worship Team and Barry Collins & the Mudflappers.
The show will be held at the Rotary Building in Stuart on Saturday, January 27. Doors open at 5 p.m., and the music will start at 6 p.m.
PCMA President Denny Alley said Charlie Chaney’s students will also perform during the show during a new segment called “Charlie’s Corner.”
“The first half-hour of each month’s going to be some of Charlie’s students, and he’ll be playing with them,” he said.
Barry Collins & The Mudflappers is a bluegrass group from Floyd. It is led by Collins, who is an award-winning banjo player that’s won the annual Galax Old Fiddler’s Convention.
Alley said the February show will be a Mandolin Festival with Ralph McGee and the GoodFellers serving as the host.
The March show will be a blues styled show with J.T. Morrison & the Foothill Boys and Lynn Foddrell and Piedmont Blues taking the stage.
Alley said Sammy Shelor’s Banjorama held in December was a huge show.
“A little over 600 people were there. It was something to see, it was a big show. One of the biggest shows we’ve ever had in a long time,” he said.
Admission is a $5 donation at the door. Prizes will be awarded throughout the night.
Concessions will be available for purchase from the Patrick County Shooting Education Team, with proceeds going to teach children in the area firearm safety.
