Local musician Michael Parsons will perform for the ArtsLink Coffeehouse Series on Thursday, Aug. 23, at 7 p.m.
The performance will take place, rain or shine, at the Francis Creative Arts Center located at the corner of Maple Avenue and Washington Street, next to the New Martinsville Public Library.
Everyone is welcome to this free event and light refreshments will be served. ArtsLink's Coffeehouse Series is sponsored by Fawn Price as a memorial to her parents, Thomas and Mary Ann Potts, who loved to "sing one" and they also loved to dance.
Michael Parsons will perform at ArtsLink’s Coffeehouse Series, Thursday, 7 p.m., at the Francis Creative Arts Center.
Parsons has entertained throughout the Ohio Valley for 45 years with stopovers in Nashville, Florida, and anywhere a wandering troubadour is welcome.
This fall, Parsons will tour with Roguie Ray LaMontaigne, father of famous singer Ray LaMontaigne, and Don "Poobah" Mealer. Also a songwriter, he has written many songs including "It's Too Late" and "Cheatum County." Projects Chairman Dan Henthorn comments, "Michael believes and supports ArtsLink's mission of sustaining our rich artistic resources and making the arts accessible to all.
"We're always proud to present a talented local artist. After short road trips to the Festival of Memories and the Lincoln Theater, it'll be nice to be in our own backyard".
ArtsLink is committed to providing universal accessibility wherever possible.
