Tuneful team of Edwards and Davis to return for bluegrass Christmas at Asheboro library

Tommy Edwards and LaNelle Davis perform.
ASHEBORO – The old time/bluegrass team of Tommy Edwards and LaNelle Davis will present a selection of original and traditional seasonal tunes in “A Country Bluegrass Christmas,” 7 p.m. Tuesday, December 12, at the Asheboro Public Library.

Edwards and Davis will be joined by Stan Brown on banjo for the concert, which is sponsored by the Friends of the Library. It’s free and the public is invited.

Siler City native Edwards is lead singer/guitarist for The Bluegrass Experience, which he founded in 1971, and host of radio station Life 103.1’s “Bluegrass Saturday Night.”

A professional performer for over 35 years, Edwards has twice been named World Champion Bluegrass Guitarist. He’s also known as an outstanding songwriter.

He served for over 30 years in the Randolph and Chatham county school systems as an administrator, a teacher and coach. He and his wife, Cindy, also ran an antiques store in Pittsboro for over 25 years.

Davis, from eastern North Carolina, initially was drawn to clogging, and toured extensively as a dancer and caller. She took up the bass when a friend moved and left one in her house, and since has performed with numerous nationally-known old time bands and individuals.

The library is located at 201 Worth Street. For more information, call 336-318-6803.
