The musical pipeline that continues to supply Letcher County with great rock from the Muscle Shoals area of northern Alabama will be filled with something extra this weekend — a free art showing before one of the performers takes the stage. Browan Lollar, above left, guitarist with Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit, will be in Whitesburg on Friday night to perform in concert and to leave a group of his paintings for display at Summit City on Main Street. A reception in honor of Lollar’s painting being shown in the Summit City gallery will begin at 7 p.m. and is free of charge. At 9 p.m., Lollar and fellow Muscle Shoals musician Michael Ledbetter, whose influences range for Pearl Jam to Bruce Springsteen, will perform a set of original material and covers of songs written by other performers who work has left a mark on their careers. Admission to the concert is $5.

Lollar, a 27-year-old native of Knoxville, Tenn., will be teaming back up with Isbell and the other members of the 400 Unit for a short tour of Europe in April.

 

 

Ledbetter has been a fixture on the Muscle Shoals music scene since 1993.
