Next month’s performance will be held from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Jan. 6 at the library. The Lady and the Old Timers Band is composed of one lady and seven self-described old timers, five of whom are over 80 years old. They play gospel and traditional country tunes.
Members include vocalist Delia Sears along with Fred Kirkland, Jim Hite, and Jim Brown on guitar; Carl Sears on bass; “Wild Bill” Jackson on harmonica; Robert Bradley on mandolin; and Roy Ramsey on dobro.
