Concert to feature Ian Moore and the music of Charlie PoleWritten by Admin
Fiddler Ian Moore will perform at the Jackson County Public Library in Sylva at 7 p.m. on Jan. 26.
Moore, who lives in Sylva, is originally from New York City and is a classically trained violinist. Since moving to Jackson County in the 1990s, he has immersed himself in traditional Appalachian music, as well as more eclectic jazz, Celtic and folk mixes.
â€śIn the time Iâ€™ve lived in Sylva, Iâ€™ve explored a wide range of acoustic music styles: old timey ballads, blues, bluegrass, rags and reels, hornpipes and hoedowns, polkas, waltzes, gospel, swing jazz, Cajun and Irish tunes, old honkeytonk numbers, jugband pieces, and rockabilly,â€ť Moore said.
Moore performs around the region with several different groups and as a solo act. For his library performance, he will play songs and fiddle tunes associated with the traveling string band from North Carolinaâ€™s Piedmont region, Charlie Poole and His North Carolina Ramblers.
The show is free and open to the public.
