Three Summer Concerts Scheduled in Winnsboro

WINNSBORO — Winnsboro Center for the Arts is presenting three talent-filled shows this summer on the Bowery Stage at 200 Market Street in historic downtown Winnsboro.



On Friday, July 7, Jason Eady and Jamie Lin Wilson take the stage as part of their Old Friends Tour. Eady has earned major acclaim for his ahead-of-the-curve take on classic country music, a bold departure from his earlier excursions into blues-infused Americana. Now with his sixth album, the Mississippi-bred singer/guitarist merges his distinct sensibilities into a stripped down, roots-oriented sound that starkly showcases the gritty elegance of his songwriting.

Formerly co-fronting the Trishas, Wilson has several albums under her belt and is an acclaimed singer-songwriter. Her voice slides in and out of notes with ease and her shows are filled with a sly sense of humor and lyrics that highlight the meaningful details of everyday life. Like one of her mentors, Guy Clark, Wilson’s music falls somewhere between folk and country.



Fiery roots-rock singer-songwriter Scott Miller performs on the Bowery Stage on Saturday, July 29. Recently inducted to the East Tennessee Writers Hall of Fame, Miller returned to his native Virginia to tend the family farm while continuing to release and perform new music informed by that rural area, history, and Appalachia. He has toured with Patty Griffin, Robbie Fulks, Paul Thorn, Robin & Linda Williams, and American Aquarium.
Clay Parker and Jodi James are scheduled on the Bowery Stage on Saturday, September 2. Based out of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, their use of dense harmony singing and subtle musical arrangements binds them to the tradition of singer-songwriters and positions them well in the folk roots and Americana strains of music. Their sound borrows from and transforms traditional Southern cornerstones of folk, blues, and country, often intermixed with mellow psychedelia and cosmic country.
All concerts begin at 7:30 p.m. with doors opening at 7 p.m. Tickets range from $18 to $39 and are available on Eventbrite. Find the direct link on
