The 3 Redneck Tenors are a new breed – their musical comedy featuring classically trained veteran artists is like Duck Dynasty goes to Carnegie Hall - down home laughs with big city music! It has been said that if Larry the Cable Guy, Il Divo, and Mrs. Doubtfire had a baby, that child would be The 3 Redneck Tenors. Written by opera-veteran Matthew Lord with music arranged by award-winning composer Craig Bohmler, and starring Mr. Lord, Blake Davidson, and Jonathan Fruge, The 3 Redneck Tenors were top finalists on "America's Got Talent" and have been thrilling audiences since 2006.

These boys have seen it all, sing it all, and make us laugh 'till we double over, reminding us that in life, it's not just the destination, it's the journey. Get ready for one side-splitting ride as we go on an excursion only the 3 Redneck Tenors could have had… delighting audiences with their vocal prowess and a smorgasbord of songs and music ranging from Gospel to Country, to Broadway, Pop, and Classical.

Bill Staines in Concert, Clifton Forge, VA

Bill Staines in Concert, Clifton Forge, VA

May 5, 7:00pm - May 5, 10:00pm

Clifton Forge School of the Arts
518 Church St
Clifton Forge, VA  24422 Map

"Folk music is rich in the human spirit and experience. I've always wanted to bring something of value to people through my songs." After touring and playing concerts for over 41 years, Bill continues to perform more than 175 shows a year and drives close to 70,000 miles getting to them. He is one of the most durable and beloved singers on the folk music scene today.

Staines has written over three hundred songs and recorded 26 albums; The Happy Wanderer and One More River were winners of the prestigious Parents' Choice Award, taking a gold medal and silver medal respectively. His songs have been recorded by many artists including Peter, Paul, and Mary, Tommy Makem and Liam Clancy, The Highwaymen, Mason Williams, Grandpa Jones, Jerry Jeff Walker, Nanci Griffith, Glen Yarborough and others.

He weaves a blend of gentle wit and humor into his performances and one reviewer wrote, "He has a sense of timing to match the best standup comic." Bill's music is a slice of Americana, reflecting with the same ease his feelings about the prairie people of the Midwest or the adventurers of the Yukon, the on-the-road truckers, or the everyday workers that make up this land.

Nanci Griffith once wrote, “Bill Staines has been my hero since 1977. He carries on where Woody left off- carrying on the tradition of stories and characters you wish you knew.”

In the fall of 2015 Yankee Magazine, New England's premiere magazine, published it's "80th Anniversary Issue." In the issue, along with the likes of Stephen King and Katherine Hepburn, Bill was chosen as "One of the 80 gifts New England has given to America."
Take a listen, or two.

TICKETS: $15 in Advance til 5pm day of show, $20 at Door. General admission seating. Doors open 6:30pm.
CASH BAR: Beer & Wine (age 21+), water, coffee & snacks.
