On the beat

Written by 

Americana at Marianna

As part of a Summer Music Series, the Marianna Black Library will present an evening of acoustic music with local singer-songwriter team Liz & AJ Nance at 7 p.m. Thursday, June 29, in Bryson City.

Liz has been playing music since she was 13 years old, when she took up the bass guitar to play along with her aunt and uncle. It wasn’t too long before she started playing the guitar and by the time she was 18 she was writing her own songs. Liz moved to Bryson City in 2004 to start a “summer job” at the Nantahala Outdoor Center, where she met AJ. It wasn't long before they partnered up with music and partnered up for life. They now write most of their music and when they do cover a tune, they always add their own creative twists and turns.

This program is free and open to area residents and visitors. Snacks and refreshments will be provided by the Friends of the Marianna Black Library.

The library is located in downtown Bryson City at the corner of Academy and Rector. For more information or driving directions call the library at 828.488.3030 or visit www.fontanalib.org/brysoncity.

Country, blues in Franklin 

Americana duo Sugar Barnes and Dave Magill will perform at 7 p.m. Thursday, July 6, at the Macon County Public Library in Franklin.

The rich harmonies and impeccable instrumentals they lend each other are a strong cohesive thread that runs throughout their music and ties their styles together in a performance that both entertains and informs.
