Musical storytellers to share tales in Dahlonega

Roxie Watson, The Buzzard Mountain Boys to take stage at The Crimson Moon Cafe

POSTED: July 24, 2013 6:20 p.m.

Two brothers and a natural storytelling woman will sing their tunes this weekend at The Crimson Moon Cafe in Dahlonega.

Kicking off will be Roxie Watson at 8:30 p.m. Friday, July 26.

“When you have a group of women who are natural storytellers, who soothe their aggressive musical chops with beautiful harmonies, temper their rock ‘n’ roll sensibilities with an understanding of Appalachian tradition, and come off as a little bit Keith Richards, a little bit Bill Monroe, you get Roxie Watson,” said Lisa Love of Georgia Music Magazine.

Tickets are $18 in advance and $20 the day of the show.

Next in line are The Buzzard Mountain Boys at 8:30 p.m. Saturday, July 27, at the cafe at 24 N. Park St. in Dahlonega. Tickets are $12 in advance and $14 the day of the show.

Joe Bob and Jim Bob, aka the “Bob Brothers,” were born on the northern slope of Big Buzzard Mountain, north of Dahlonega. They come down from their mountain to share traditional tales and tunes from the hills and hollers of Appalachia, interspersed with corny humor to take listeners back to the days of traveling minstrels.

Most of the ticket sales plus 10 percent of food and beverages purchased during July’s revue will be donated to help pay medical expenses for the infant son of old-time musician Kenneth Johnson.
