The Line Mountain Middle/High School and the Line Mountain Council for the Arts and Humanities will present Fiddle N Swing June 27 beginning at 7:30 p.m. at the school. Admission is $8 for adults, $3 for students. Tickets available at the door.
During Act One, The Morgan Family and Uncle Bean will bring the fiddle part of the program to life. They perform an Americana repertoire of music including bluegrass, country, southern gospel and patriotic — all family friendly.
Act Two will swing with The After Hours Big Band. From the traditional big band arrangements of Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, and Les Brown to the modern era sounds of big band artists such as Maynard Ferguson and Brian Setzer, The After Hours Big Band covers it all. They also play big band arrangements of contemporary popular music for music lovers with more modern tastes.
The Arts Council returns to its roots in Act Three with its own Children’s Ensemble and Adult Chorus. Under the direction of Judy Updegrove, the local performers take a whimsical approach to performing songs that have a sports theme. Some highlights of the show feature children singing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” and chiming in on the ladies rendition of “Camptown Races.” The men and women will combine for a few pieces including “You’ve Got to Be a Football Hero” that will include some not-so-reluctant cheerleaders. Brenda Snyder will dance along to “It Don’t Mean a Thing.”
The singers will be supported by accompanist Carol Hubler and a host of local instrumentalists who make up a pit orchestra.
A drawing featuring the Ned Smith print “Eastern Meadowlark” will be held the night of the show. Tickets can be purchased to also try to win a queen-sized homemade quilt, quilted toss pillows, gift certificates to the White Oak Tavern, and a bread basket from Panera Bread.
