Presented by Appalfolks of America

The Virginia Opry's "Fall Harvest Jamboree" will complete its 28th performance season by featuring the Moonshine Express Band, a five-piece band formed by Billy Fury here in the Alleghany Highlands 30 years ago. Crossing County Lines, a four-piece bluegrass and old-time music band, will serve as the opening act. Crossing County Lines was formed in 2017 as part of the New "Old School" Junior Virginia Opry that has since recorded a CD in Nashville and performed there at the Commodore Grille.

Jana Allen will emcee the "Fall Harvest Jamboree," at The Virginia Opry and perform as vocalist. Allen began her career as an actress and vocalist during her sixth-grade year by performing in "A Musical Tribute to the Railroad," that was one of AAA's first productions in the Historic Stonewall Theatre following the founding of the Stonewall Players that included actors and vocalists from the Alleghany Highlands combining their talents with those from Roanoke.

Allen has performed in more than a dozen movies and TV programs, and she has performed on stage at such theatres as the North Theatre and the Cape Fear Theatre. She wrote and narrated "STARS," a documentary film concerning the need to fully restore the Historic Stonewall Theatre, the home of STARS (Special Theatrical Artists Revue & Showcase). The 2006 film was awarded a Bronze Telly. Allen is a trained vocalist who has performed in a Hollywood cabaret, performed as a vocalist for the Opry of the Virginias as well as on The Virginia Opry and recorded her rendition of "Home Sweet Home, Virginia," the theme song of The Virginia Opry.

Tickets: Orchestra: $15-20; Balcony: $10-15; Box Seats: $25.

Amazon Reviewer Alana left this note:
"I recently watched this with my 12 year old son and was surprised to see him belly laughing. I guess some of the old classics really do transcend generations. (I'm technically a millennial but I grew up without TV or colored movies so this pre-WWII movieland world feels like home to me.) I've watched this movie maybe half a dozen times in my life and look forward to watching it as many times again. It's charming, hilarious, original, and just that tad bit spooky you want for a chilly late-autumn night viewing. I recommend pj's and hot chocolate. ..."

About the film:
Writer and notorious marriage detractor Mortimer Brewster (Cary Grant) falls for girl-next-door Elaine Harper (Priscilla Lane), and they tie the knot on Halloween. When the newlyweds return to their respective family homes to deliver the news, Brewster finds a corpse hidden in a window seat. With his eccentric aunts (Josephine Hull, Jean Adair), disturbed uncle (John Alexander), and homicidal brother (Raymond Massey), he starts to realize that his family is even crazier than he thought.

We are pleased to present an ongoing series of classic, family and popular films, shown in the beautifully restored John E. Hillert Auditorium.

Tony Coleman Band and Friends

Tony Coleman Band and Friends

Oct 18, 7:30pm - Oct 18, 9:30pm

Historic Masonic Theatre and Masonic Amphitheatre
510 Main Street
Clifton Forge, VA  24422 Map

Saturday, October 18, 2018 at 7:30pm
In the John E. Hillert Auditorium
Tickets: Main Orchestra: $25; Rear Orchestra and Front Balcony: $20; Rear Balcony: $15; Box Seats: $35.
Produced by The Alleghany Highlands Blues Society
SONA Bank Concert Series

Tony Coleman has had an illustrious career touring the world with B.B. King, Otis Clay, Bobby Blue Bland, Johnnie Taylor, Albert King, Albert Collins, Etta James, James Cotton, Katie Webster, Z.Z. Hill, O.V. Wright and Buddy Guy. Local blues artists from The Alleghany Highlands Blues Society, producers of the shows, will open the show for Tony’s Band.

His early aspirations led to his meeting soul singer Otis Clay. He quickly joined Clay’s band and toured with him for a couple years, recording a live album in Tokyo, Japan. Out of touring and recording with Otis Clay came opportunities to work with other major R&B and blues artists. After a jam session in a Chicago club called The High Chaparral, B.B. King jammed with Otis Clay’s rhythm section. B.B. King liked the rhythm section so much that he asked them to join him as his touring band. So Tony Coleman, Russell Jackson and Leonard Gill became B.B. King’s rhythm section. As fate would have it, Tony was only with B.B. for a few months when B.B.’s ex-drummer returned.

Tony Coleman returned to Chicago and rejoined Otis Clay’s band for another tour in Japan. From Otis Clay, Tony moved to Dallas, Texas in 1980 to play drums for Johnnie Taylor. Tony toured with Johnnie for a couple of years and was then asked to join Bobby Blue Bland, with whom he worked for a few years. In the middle of a combined B.B. King/Bobby Blue Bland tour, B.B. needed a drummer and Tony ended up playing drums for both artists for the remainder of that tour, playing two shows a night. At that point, Tony rejoined B.B. King and has since been touring with Mr. King’s organization, performing blues music around the globe.

Alexa Rose Band: Medicine for Living Tour

Oct 25, 7:30pm - Oct 25, 9:30pm

Historic Masonic Theatre and Masonic Amphitheatre
510 Main Street
Clifton Forge, VA  24422 Map

ALEXA ROSE
‘Medicine for Living’ Debut Album Tour
In the John E Hillert Auditorium
Friday, October 25, 7:30 PM
The John E. Hillert Family Event Series
Tickets: Main Orchestra: $20; Rear Orchestra and Front Balcony: $17; Rear Balcony: $15; Box Seats: $30.

Alexa Rose was born in the Alleghany Highlands of western Virginia, raised in the tiny railroad town of Clifton Forge. Though no one her immediate family played or sang, she inherited a deep musical legacy.

That visceral connection is at the core of Rose’s debut album, "Medicine for Living (Big Legal Mess)." A stunning ten-track effort, it finds the 25-year-old singer-songwriter bringing a wellspring of tradition to bear on an enlivening collection of contemporary roots songs. Rolling Stone selected the album’s title track as one of its “Ten Best Country and Americana Songs to Hear Right Now.”

“In a way, 'Medicine for Living' is about all the lessons I’ve learned, of people and places that have shaped my worldview and my definitions of love and commitment. There’s a lot of tension between wanting to leave your home and go out into the world, and the roots that pull you back.” -Alexa Rose

This performance is part of the John E. Hillert Family Event Series
