Randolph Community Concerts ready for another diverse season

ASHEBORO — The Randolph Community Concerts Association has announced a diverse group of artists for the 2009-2010 series.

From rock ‘n roll to classical, Nashville to Moscow, the series promises to have something for every taste in music. There’s even a good dose of Asheboro thrown in the mix.

The Community Concerts begin Sept. 12 with Justin David, a Nashville-based singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, viewed by many as “one to watch” on the contemporary country music scene. His live performances are said to build to an almost “rock star” frenzy.

Casey MacGill’s Blue 4 Trio come to town on Oct. 3. Playing music that swings, the trio performs three-part vocal harmony with piano, uke, bass and drums in a blend that’s sometimes sweet, sometimes rough-hewn, for a result that’s soft, loud, happy, sad, raw, mellow, with sometimes an honest mistake thrown in for good measure.

Asheboro’s own Bantam Rooster will shake things up on Dec. 6 with their Rockin Christmas. Shane Morgan, Chris Morgan, Doyle Hinkle and Steven Walker are four men who like to rock and have dazzled local crowds of all ages with hits from the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s. It’s one show you don’t want to miss.

Jan. 24 brings Rudolf Budginas: You Me & The Piano. A musical prodigy who trained at the Moscow Conservatory, Budginas specializes in illustrating how classical music has influenced contemporary artists, breaking down how Billy Joel might have drawn from Liszt’s “Hungarian Rhapsody” to get “Piano Man.”

The John Denver Tribute wraps up the Asheboro portion of the Community Concerts. Mack Bailey of Troy, Chris Nole and Pete Huttlinger will take us back to, well, almost heaven.

Bailey has spent time with “The Limelighters” and both Nole and Huttlinger were Denver band members.

The Randolph Community Concerts Association is again teaming up with other Piedmont cities to provide 22 concerts from Sept. 12 to April 17.

An adult membership is $45 and insures entry to any concert in the six cities. Student memberships are $15, families are $100 and single parent with children is $55.

All local concerts are held at the Asheboro High School Performing Arts Center.
