Ronceverte’s Rivertown Gypsies, husband and wife duo of Shane and Lynda Allen, will be playing a soulful blend of acoustic rock and blues.
Powerhouse vocalist, Morgan Cornwell, known most recently for her incredible performances with local rock phenomenon THE WEIGHT, will be performing solo on piano.
Brooklyn, New York’s very own vocalist-violinist, Julia Read, will be appearing in Lewisburg just after finishing up a tour across the UK.
The event is presented by the Appalachian Queer Film Festival (AQFF) to raise awareness about their inaugural festival scheduled for October 23rd – 26th in Lewisburg, WV. AQFF’s mission is to bring queer films and filmmakers to the region and break down stereotypes throughout Appalachia.
Admission is free and dinner service is available between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m.
