This special fundraising event will be held Wednesday, November 12 at 6 p.m. at the Jettie Baker Center in Clintwood. Patrons will be treated to a reception with heavy hors d’oeuvres at 6:00 p.m., followed by the concert.

Lewis, an award-winning guitarist and two-time national five-string-banjo champion, is one of the most respected acoustic musicians in the country.

He has performed at the National Folk Festival, The Smithsonian, the National Council for the Traditional Arts, the American Piano Masters Series and on National Public Radio.
