Country Showcase

Robert Leonard, with Mike Baker & Charlie Flower

Location: R.A. Fountain

From our promo for this concert:

Robert Leonard fronts an excellent band of some of Wilson County’s best country music players, which includes vocalists Mike Baker and Charlie Flowers and pedal steel guitarist Bowie Martin.

Ronnie King plays lead guitar; Glen Speight on bass; and Robert Keel on drums. King and Speight will also share vocals.

“We’ve said for several years that Wilson County was the country music capital of East Carolina,” said Alex Albright, Fountain General proprietor. “This show is the heart of why that’s still so true.”

This show marks the first time Bowie Martin has returned to RAF to perform since disbanding Country Roads, the premier country music band in the region. “But this is pretty much his old band backing up some terrific singers,” added Albright.
