A very Conard Christmas
The Haywood County Arts Council presents singer-songwriter Lorraine Conard in concert at 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 18, at the Haywood County Public Library auditorium, 678 S. Haywood St., Waynesville. The free concert is sponsored by the Village Framer and is part of the Sunday Concert Series co-sponsored by the Arts Council and the Friends of the Haywood County Library.
First-time listeners are often astonished to hear Conard's deep, soulful singing voice. She wields it to bring her songwriting vibrantly to life, ranging from toe-tapping, countrified Americana to folk-tinged blues. All her songs, regardless of their patchwork roots, are anchored by rich, earthy vocals that are equally capable of soothing and electrifying.
Conard and friends will perform releases from her newest CD and share ...
