‘Dueling Fiddles’ to benefit Butler Ruritan8:56 am | October 22, 2012
Butler Ruritan will hold a benefit performance by “The Adam Larkey Band” and “The Carson Peters Band” at Heritage Hall in Mountain City Sunday, Oct. 28, at 1:30 p.m.
The bands were unable to play at the Old Butler Days Celebration in August, and have agreed to do a special concert to benefit the Butler Ruritan.
This event features fiddle players 8-year-old Carson and ‘just-turned 16’ Adam, and Adam’s younger sister, Sarah Grace.
The performance has been named “Dueling Fiddles,” based on the Dueling Banjos music from the movie “Deliverance.” Each band will perform 30 minutes alone and then 30 minutes together. Their rendition of “Orange Blossom Special” is a crowd favorite.
Tickets are now on sale by calling Heritage Hall at 727-7444 Tuesday through Friday, from noon till 2 p.m. or leave a message and someone will return your call. Adult tickets are $10 in advance or $12 at the door and children under 12 tickets are $6.
There will be a short auction at 1:30 p.m., which will include a Tennessee Vols rocking chair, donated by the Dry Hill General Store and Deli in Butler.
All proceeds go to the Butler Ruritan, which is a local organization of volunteers who provide assistance to people in the community that need temporary help.
Sponsors for this event are Humphrey’s Masonary Supplies, Farmer’s State Bank, Trey Youngbood at Farm Bureau Insurance, Ken Wandell at State Farm Insurance, and The Tributary Restaurant.
