Saturday, November 6, 2021, 7:00 PM in the John E. Hillert Auditorium.
TICKETS $ 25 – $40 (TICKETS INCLUDE A $5 FEE AT CHECKOUT FOR RESTORATION AND HANDLING) Tayla Lynn and Tre Twitty have country music in their blood. The grandchildren of famed duo Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty, the two have taken to the road to honor their grandparents in an intimate evening of music and storytelling. Tayla Lynn and Tre Twitty have seen great success with their Tribute to Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty; going into their second year together, the duo already has at least two dozen tour dates set throughout much of North America and Canada.
Though Tayla Lynn and Tre Twitty are singing their grandparents' songs, there is no second-best quality to the artists. Lynn and Twitty have developed an authentic show that builds off of their family histories without attempting to simply duplicate older performances. In perfect foil to one another, Tre Twitty takes a calm, methodical approach to his storytelling and performing, meanwhile, Tayla Lynn arrives on stage, often unexpectedly, with explosive energy and heart. Trying to keep one’s eyes on Tayla Lynn is like trying to lasso a firework; guessing where shells appear and what will come out of her mouth next is half the fun of spending an evening with her. Her joy is genuine, her energy addictive, and Twitty provides the perfect balance of steadiness in the eye of her hurricane- not unlike the way Conway Twitty related to and tempered Loretta Lynn for so many years.
With a heavy emphasis on story-telling, the duo delight audiences for two-and-a-half hours with their live show. For most artists, this wouldn’t work; people pay to hear singers sing. For Lynn and Twitty, half the magic is in the storytelling. Through their memories of Memaw and Poppy, as they call their grandparents, audiences are reminded in the best ways possible that behind every icon is a dynamic, funny, flawed human being. The show takes on the quality of a family get-together, and it often feels more like one is on the front porch with guitars and old family hymns than it does a concert with two hundred of ones nearest and dearest strangers. It is a fascinating opportunity to see two of country music’s greatest legends through their grandchildren’s eyes. By the end of the evening, audiences have not only been able to hear some of their favorite songs and the duos best hits but they’ve been invited into the inner sanctum of these two musical dynasties to laugh and cry and understand what it was like to grow up under the tutelage of Loretta and Conway.
The high-energy, heartfelt show highlights not only the bond Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty had as best friends and musical partners, but the unique bond Tayla and Tre have formed through years of intertwined family history and their own musical relationship.... See MoreSee Less

Having toured the West Coast via the support of a corporate sponsor, Bryant released his fourth album on the S&S Mack label in 2007. He is the founder of the Iron Horse, and Bryant, and Iron Horse can be viewed performing on videos that have been posted on “YouTube.” He made his first appearance on The Virginia Opry in 2017.

We still have a few available for The Ricky Tims Master Class Quilt Retreat February 17 through February 19, 2022
The Ricky Tims Master Class Quilt Retreat February 17 through February 19, 2022
The Ricky Tims Master Class Quilt Retreat offers a comprehensive quilt curriculum for all quilters. This customized event will teach, encourage, inspire, and will most certainly keep you entertained. Ricky demystifies seemingly complex concepts and teaches mastery of unique techniques. The sessions on creativity will show you how to harness the power of the ever-elusive muse of creativity.
The sessions cover improvisational patchwork, no-pins precision curved piecing, design guidelines, color theory, dyeing basics, and machine quilting tips that work for both domestic and long arm. You will learn beautiful outline appliqué and innovative piecing techniques—most of which don’t require a quarter-inch seam! Ricky’s goal is to change how you think when it comes to quilting. He will help you to reevaluate your quilting experience and give you the ability to define who you are as a quilter. The seminar will benefit all quilters—beginners or experienced—traditional or art. In addition to the methods and techniques being taught, there will be plenty of fun projects/patterns for you to consider.
This event will be customized as a one-of-a-kind seminar but is based on Ricky’s popular Quilt Luminarium that has received rave reviews from thousands of quilters from across the country. The 120-page full-color syllabus alone is worth the registration. These are not-for-sale and are only available to registered attendees.
Ricky will also be presenting a concert full of story-telling and piano music Saturday evening at 7:00 pm.
In addition, Ricky will be sharing the ten-year backstory of the creation of Lizzy Albright and the Attic Window, a book featuring a ten-year-old, red-headed, over-imaginative girl. Through the discovery of a family heirloom quilt, Lizzy is transported to an enchanted land where a powerful curse has befallen the kingdom of Ailear. Lizzy and her companions believe they can reverse the curse, but an evil sorceress has other plans. This magical and thrilling story is described as Harry Potter meets Alice in Wonderland meets the Wizard of Oz.
Don’t miss this weekend chocked full of education, inspiration, and entertainment that has been created just for you.
Thursday, February 17, 3:00pm to 7:00pm Includes a meet and greet and dinner. Friday, February 19, 8:30am to 8:00pm Includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner and evening session.
