The Town of Boone’s Summer Concert Series at the Jones House continues with another concert on the lawn starting at 5 p.m. on Friday, July 19, with a trio of highly anticipated performances by the Everydays, Alexa Rose and Tom Shirley.
The Everydays kick off Friday’s concert. Performing across the region since 2012, guitarists and singer-songwriters David Zoll and Tim Marsh are known for their lyrical troubadour-style acoustic sets with tight vocal harmonies and an unassuming delivery.
Alexa Rose, Friday’s second act, draws upon alternative, folk and mountain roots to create a fresh, new Appalachian sound. Rose’s original tunes draw upon some of her musical influences including old country artists such as Patsy Cline and Dolly Parton, as well as songwriting legends like Paul Simon.
Closing this week’s concert is Boone native, Tom Shirley, who is no stranger to the Jones House or downtown Boone. Backed by Kenny Johnson on electric bass, Buzz Dodge on drums and Tom Whyte on harmonic, Shirley leads vocals and plays electric guitar. With a mix of original songs and covers of rock n’ roll classics, Shirley always brings energy to his crowd-pleasing performances.
