Dale Ann Bradley, former Coon Creek Girl and mainstay at Kentucky’s Renfro Valley Barn Dance, will take the stage at 7 p.m. on Sept. 26 at Lee Theatre in Pennington Gap, Virginia
Bradley is known for distinctive, gentle vocal phrasing accompanied by her guitar. She also is backed by a band which includes banjo, dobro, bass and mandolin.
She has released albums both as a solo artist and with the New Coon Creek Girls. She commands a list of awards as long as Hwy. 40, yet she is something even more than extraordinarily gifted — she is extraordinarily human.
The daughter of a primitive Baptist preacher who allowed no musical instruments in church, Bradley grew up in a self-described “backwoods holler” down a rural road where electricity and running water were not available until she was in high school. This makes her more in common with the first generation of bluegrass than her contemporaries in today’s scene.
Admission is $15 for adults; $10 for seniors; and $5 for students. College students and children under 5 are admitted free.
The evening is presented by Pro-Art Association as part of the Lee County Cultural Arts Series. The program is partially supported by the Virginia Commission for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
