Del McCoury Band, Preservation Hall Jazz Band to Walton Arts

Posted By on Wed, Mar 30, 2011 at 3:29 PM

Bakersville is set to meet New Orleans in Fayetteville when the Del McCoury Band and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band bring their "American Legacies" tour to Walton Arts Center on Sunday, April 17 at 7 p.m.

Great googly moogly: putting these bands on tour together is something like a stroke of brilliance. Few, if any, bands have dedicated their careers to preserving traditional American music as skillfully and faithfully as these two. I mean, I think I would be overwhelmed with reverence for both acts if I wasn't so damn entertained the entire time.

Tickets range from $32 to $52 and are available at the Walton Arts Center website.

  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.

    Hot Springs twice erupted into the kind of violence that has its roots in the issues left unresolved by the Civil War, and both times, it happened right where that monument to Confederate soldiers stands today.
