We had earlier announced that the Carter Family Fold's special program would feature Mountain Park Old Time Band. The band has been changed to Tune Town. The Tune Town Old Time Band is a North Carolina based old time band that has been making quite a name for themselves in old time music circles for the past several years. Tune Town has six musicians in the group. The band features two guitars, two fiddles, and the clawhammer banjo. Dr. Mark Handy will be playing banjo and helping out on vocals. When he’s not playing old time, Dr. Handy practices family medicine in Abingdon, Virginia.
Friday, June 6th, 2014, at 7:00 p.m. the Carter Family Fold in Hiltons, Virginia, will present a special concert to celebrate the donation of an AED (automated external defibrillator) from Wellmont Holston Valley Medical Center and the Level One Heart Attack Network to our venue. Holston Valley employees and co-workers are especially encouraged to attend this free concert. Wristbands for employee event admission are available in the Wellmont HVMC Human Resources office on a first-come, first-serve basis – four per employee. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend as well. In lieu of admission, please bring a donation of canned goods for the Second Harvest Food Bank. Dr. Mark Handy and the Tune Town Old Time Band will be our featured band, but there may be some other guest performers.
Fans of groups like the Whiteop Mountain Band will love the Tune Town Old Time Band. Be sure to bring your dancing shoes, and be ready for a night of down home fun. Nothing gets you out of your seat and on the dance floor faster than a rousing old time band. Don’t miss the Tune Town Old Time Band at the Carter Family Fold!
The Carter Music Center is proud to partner with Wellmont Holston Valley Medical Center to present this special concert. The music center, staff, and the Carter Fold family are very grateful to Wellmont Holston Valley Medical Center, HVMC CEO Tim Atterberry, Leslie Bishop, Dr. Herbert Ladley, and the Level One Heart Attack Netwwork for the generous donation of this life-saving device.
