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.
