January HTMA Coffeehouse at Burritt
January 24 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM CSTFree – $10
Shane Adkins will headline the January coffeehouse. Shane was recently inducted into the 2022 National Thumbpickers Hall of Fame. In 2003, Shane won the International “Home of the Legends” Thumbpicking Contest in Muhlenberg County, KY and in September 2005, he won the International Fingerstyle Guitar Championship in Winfield, KS. Shane writes historical songs that tell intriguing stories, funny songs full of laughs, and touching songs that tug at the heart strings.
In January 2002, he performed his “Beans and Taters” on the Grand Ole Opry with Mike Snider. Shane has produced five outstanding albums. Shane was inspired by Mose Rager, a thumbpicking pioneer who also influenced Merle Travis and Chet Atkins. Shane promotes thumb and fingerstyle guitar because he believes it is an American musical art form that should be preserved and shared.
Chase Creek Strings will open the coffeehouse at 7:00. Chase Creek Strings is composed of Jack Ellis on guitar and vocals, Sue Huffman on autoharp and vocals, Bill Cassels on fiddle and Stephanie Clark on fiddle and vocals. These longtime HTMA members have performed locally and regionally in numerous bands, bringing a mix of American folk music from the 19th and 20thcenturies, traditional songs of Appalachia, Irish ballads, and old-time gospel.
This year, our coffeehouses move back inside the old country church at Burritt, freeing us from weather concerns and allowing a longer season. Tickets will be sold at the door for $10 and children 12 and under continue to be free when accompanied by an adult.
