RAF retail 10-3, music @ 1 & 2 pm

Location: R.A. Fountain

After today, we’re closed for the summer, unless a really amazing show comes through the area looking for a date.

The Land Girls perform at 1 p.m.

Bill Redding performs at 2 p.m. He’s a Fountain favorite from way back–he’s performed here dozens of times with many acts, often with Mike Hamer, the Zen Revelators, Macabre Revelators, and sometimes fronting his own band. He has a vast repertoire of acoustic tunes, many of them Irish in origin, to share.

About the Land Girls:
Imagine Bill Monroe and Bob Dylan on a road trip together. They pick up John Denver and the Everly Brothers and while traveling down country roads they stop in a church where the Carter Family is singing. That gives you an idea of this duo’s setlist. They may leave on a jet plane but will return on a gospel ship. While they may say bye bye to love, they’ll keep it on the sunny side and have you dreaming of a mansion on a hilltop.
       The players: Leslie Bowman coordinates the  praise choir at St.Timothy Episcopal Church in Greenville. She’ll be singing and playing guitar. Donna Davis writes a column for the Daily Reflector about local musicians. She dabbles on different instruments but will mainly be playing ubass and singing. Both play with the St. James Jammers.

Retail hours today: 10-3.
