Boosinger, Goforth to play Cradle of Forestry

Written by 

art boosingerAcclaimed musicians Laura Boosinger and Josh Goforth will open the Songcatchers Music Series at 4 p.m. Sunday, July 6, at the Cradle of Forestry in America.

Boosinger and Goforth will present a varied set of old-time favorites, originals, a little swing and duet harmonies. Boosinger has won glowing reviews wherever she appears. She possesses an essence of the mountains spirit that takes you back to the old days when folks huddled around the radio. Goforth is an acclaimed fiddler, guitar picker and mandolin player from Madison County. He has already garnered a Grammy nomination and established himself as a one-to-watch musician.

Local old-time musicians are often onsite to play informally by the Cradle’s Moon Tree at 3 p.m. before the concert. The series continues with Dana and Susan Robinson on July 13, Elizabeth LaPrelle and Anna Roberts-Gevalt on July 20, and the Palmetto Gravel Scratchers on July 27.

Admission for all shows is $6 for ages 16 and older, $3 for youth 15 and under and America the Beautiful and Golden Age pass holders. 

The series is sponsored by Morrow Insurance Agency, Inc.
