A young and vibrant Christian family band that specializes in its own blend of classical, folk and pop music will kick off the 51st Concert Series season for the Fine Arts Association of Southeastern Kentucky Sept. 14.
In Corbin for a return engagement, the Annie Moses Band is the first of eight eclectic performances that make up this year’s series offering.
“We consistently strive to bring excellent, recognized performers to the tri-county area at a modest cost,” said Fine Arts Association Program Chair Betty Comer.
“The Board is very proud of the quality programming we are able to present this season and we hope you will join us often for as many performances as you can.”
The Annie Moses Band is a family of Juilliard trained musicians and award winning songwriters dedicated to spiritual excellence and virtuosity in the arts. Led by lead singer/violinist, Annie Wolaver, the Band includes her five siblings, Alex, viola, Benjamin, cello, Camille, harp/keyboard, Gretchen, violin/mandolin, and Jeremiah, on guitar and banjo. Add the veteran songwriting talents of their parents, Bill and Robin Wolaver, and you have a dynamic group with roots in classical, pop, and jazz.
The group played a performance for the Fine Arts Association two years ago, and is back by popular demand. Their new album, titled “Pilgrims and Prodigals,” is set to release Sept. 18.
The Annie Moses Band will perform Friday, Sept. 14, 7:30 p.m. at the Corbin High School Auditorium. The event is cosponsored by Whitaker Bank and the Corbin Tourism and Convention Commission.
