from our promo for this concert

[Fountain, NC] Nancy Middleton performs original alt-Americana and classic country music at Fountain General Store this coming Saturday night.

Middleton released two solo country CDs of original songs prior to moving to Nashville, Tennessee, in 1998, where she performed at the Bluebird Cafe and other venues. She returned to her hometown of Durham to raise her children.

Her recently released CD of original songs, “Loaded,” was recorded in Durham. She is completing pre-production work on an original folk-rock opera, “The Stone Garden.”

Middleton will be accompanied by guitarist Willie Painter for her Fountain show. They have been popular Triangle performers in recent months with their band, the Fellow Travelers.

This will be Middleton’s second performance at Fountain with Painter. “Nancy’s got a big, beautiful voice as well as excellent material to work with,” said Alex Albright, Fountain General Store proprietor. “And Willie’s one of the best lead guitarists in the state. We’re really looking forward to this one.”
