Watermen’s Music Jamboree – The Burtons and Ralph Motley-Yorktown
Concert artists range from our very own ShantyGrass, numerous international, national, and local solo and band performers, to full-size symphony orchestras playing Americana music. $10 for adult ticket, kids 12 and under are free. This month, enjoy the wonderful sounds of The Burtons and Ralph Motley. The Burtons are a family team providing beautiful harmonies as they sing the country music songs you know and love. From mournful ballads to soaring love songs and everything in between, their blending of voices contains subtle changes to music from the 60s to today. Ralph Motley plays fiddle, guitar, banjo, mandolin, bass, drums, harmonica and dobro. He has fronted such blue-grass greats as Ricky Scaggs, Bill Monroe, and Lester Flatt – has played on the Grand Old Opry Stage and he sang at the White House Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony in 1996. One reviewer described his music as “clean and polished, yet still rustic and natural….music communication on a deep, honest level. So come have fun with us.
