Donald Underwood Thompson

Location: R.A. Fountain

From our promo for this concert:

Kinston’s Donald Underwood Thompson begins the 3-day weekend of live music in Fountain with a Thursday night concert of blues, folk, early country classics from the 1920s and ’30s, blue yodels, and a few songs from the golden age of honky tonk.

Thompson is known in Fountain for his entertaining shows, and for his showmanship. He mixes his music with story-telling, and this evening he will also be joined by two of his musical friends, Dr. Bill Blackley, a blues harmonica-playing physician from Elkin, and Jackie Holland on slide guitar and harmonica.
