Gillian Welch performing live at the Paramount

April 21, 2014

Gillian Welch will perform live in concert at The Paramount Center for the Arts on Tuesday, April 29 at 8pm (doors open at 7pm). Gillian Welch first appeared on the scene as a young singer/songwriter armed with a voice and sensibility far beyond her years, earning widespread acclaim for her deft, evocative resurrection of the musical styles most commonly associated with the roots of traditional and early country music. Welch was born in Manhattan and grew up in West Los Angeles. It was as a child that she became fascinated by bluegrass and brother team harmonies, in particular the work of the Stanley Brothers, the Delmore Brothers, and the Carter Family. Tickets are $30. For further information or to buy tickets, contact the Paramount at 423-274-8920 or go to their website: http://theparamountcenter.com.
