Sheila Kay Adams & The Scofflows
8:00 PM @ the Muddy Creek Music Hall in Historic Bethania Mill, 5455 Bethania Rd, W-S  27106 Cover: $16/$14 F&B members 
Sheila Kay Adams is a nationally recognized Appalachian singer, storyteller and writer born and raised in Madison County, NC, an area rich in traditional ballad singing.  She learned to sing from her great-aunt Dellie Chandler Norton and Dillard Chandler and other singers in the area.  She is also an accomplished claw hammer banjo player.  Sheila is the author of two books: "Come Home With Me," a collection of stories published by the University of North Carolina Press, and winner of the 1997 North Carolina Society's award for Historical Fiction.  "My Own True Love," a novel,
was published by Algonquin Books in 2004.  Adams' devotion to preserving her heritage earned her the North Carolina Folklore Society's Brown-Hudson Award in recognition of her contribution to the study of folklore.  And in 2013 she received the National Heritage Fellowship, the nation's highest honor in the folk and traditional arts.  Sheila's vocals and banjo are joined by songwriter Dan Lewis on vocals and guitar and Branson Raines, a gifted young musician on fiddle, mandolin, and banjo.  Lewis has released 12 albums of original music and has performed hundreds of shows in a variety of genres.  Raines, in addition to performing with the Scofflaws, also performs bluegrass music with various bands in the area.
This will be an excellent night of music.  The opportunity to look back at our mountain music heritage through such authentic voices is rare and not to be missed.
