The Ginsangers will perform at the next Randolph County Community Arts Center's Brown Bag Concert July 18 beginning at noon.
The Ginsangers, based in Elkins, make the highlands their home. Their music is a mix of originals and cover songs that range in flavor from jazz, blues and swing to rock and country with a hint of traditional. They have performed at MerleFest, on Mountain Stage, on Public Radio and from Maine to Louisiana. Their recordings have received airplay throughout the country.
Connie Townsend and Dave Parker's songwriting has won national recognition. Like Townsend's voice, it is unique but at the same time fits seamlessly with the canon of American music and has been described as having a timeless quality.
The Ginsangers will perform at the next Randolph County Community Arts Center’s Brown Bag Concert, set for noon Wednesday.
The band members come from diverse musical backgrounds that cover the range of jazz, country, folk, rock and blues. They meld these flavors into a musical concoction that audiences love. Jeff Broschart is on drums, Townsend is on guitar and lead vocals, Seth Maynard on lead guitar, Roy Turner on electric and upright bass and Parker on acoustic and resonator guitar.
This free monthly concert is sponsored by the Davis Trust Co.
