June Sunday Series to feature Dusk Weaver
The Haywood County Arts Council announces Dusk Weaver in concert at 3 p.m. Sunday, June 16 at the Haywood County Library auditorium in Waynesville.
The Sunday Concert Series is sponsored by the Friends of the Library. Dusk Weaver is described as an upbeat storyteller, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Reviewers have repeatedly called him “a modern Renaissance man.” This concert is free and the public is cordially invited to attend.
He is a member of both Phi Mu Alpha national music fraternity and Phi Kappa Phi honor society, and the lyrics for two of his songs were published in "Apotheosis," the official magazine of the international Poetic Genius Society.
Through Dusk's lifelong love of song and performances, he befriended songwriting legends Townes Van Zandt, Billy Joe Shaver, and especially Mickey Newbury, who generously served as a role model and mentor to Dusk.
In 2001, Dusk released his debut CD album with a variety of musical styles: maverick country, folk rock, southern R&B, driving Cajun, rockabilly, walking/talking blues, and hilarious novelty, all delivered in various Americana blends featuring his highly original – and often humorous – story songs about life in The South.
Recently, Dusk released his second CD album “Dedications & Dreams” which exhibits an even broader sweep of musical styles and themes. For more information about upcoming concerts, programs, and Gallery 86 exhibits, visit the Haywood County Arts Council online at www.haywoodarts.org.
The mission of the Haywood County Arts Council is to build partnerships that promote art and artists, explore new cultural opportunities, and preserve mountain artistic heritage.
