Roots Music Series at Creative Arts Guild

The Creative Arts Guild is excited to announce the new In Concert Series at the Creative Arts Guild!  We welcome the community to join us as we celebrate the timeless art of American Roots Music consisting of traditional Country, Bluegrass, Folk, Blues, & Jazz.  Each concert will feature a local or touring artist with a specialty in Roots Music.

Kicking off the new Roots Music Series at the Creative Arts Guild are Dalton natives Charlsey Etheridge, Craig Pratt, and Erik Hurt.  Between them, they have collaborated, performed, and/or worked with some of the music industry’s most respected artists, musicians, and writers. While living over a decade in music city and abroad, singer-songwriter Charlsey Etheridge has had the pleasure of working with Grammy Award winners Steve Wariner, Harley Allen (songwriter), Randy Kohrs (producer/engineer of Jim Lauderdale’s Bluegrass Diaries), as well as Guitar virtuoso’s Richard Smith, David Greer, Jack Pearson, formerly of the Allman Brothers Band, and talented bassist Billy Peterson (Steve Miller Band), just to name a few!  She has taken the stage at some of Nashville’s most respected venues including the World Famous Station Inn and Bluebird Cafe.  Erik has spent many years over the past 2 decades on the road with various artists including Channing Eleton (Southern Gospel Pianist of the Year), as well as working with notable musicians like Motown Bassist Michael DeLaney and Ken Gabriel (James Brown Band).  Craig is an emerging singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist.  Craig has also spent time on the road with various bands and shines as a lead guitar player.  This mix of local talent with real-world experience is certainly not to be missed!

If you are interested in concerts or our other music programming please contact Music Director, Lisa Elders at 706.259.1822 or at lisae@creativeartsguild.org.
