Jon Durham & Forlorn Hope

Location: R.A. Fountain

From our promo for this concert:

On Thursday night, Jon Durham and the Forlorn Hope stops by Fountain as he swings northward for shows in Virginia, West Virginia, and Ohio. He has lived in Aiken, SC for many years, where he has established himself as one of that region’s best-known singer-songwriters, and he’s done three excellent shows here.

Durham’s songwriting and music have been compared to that of Steve Earle. His songs are often narratives about the unusual, overlooked, and downtrodden.

He has released 3 CDs of original songs: Sunset Haze, Nine Inches & Falling, and One in a Million.

He’s a cohort of David Childers, who highly recommends him. Jon, in turn, has promised that one of these days, he’ll get Childers down from his mountain to Fountain, the peak of Pitt County.
