Published DateFRANKLIN — Memories of years gone by will ring out when E.C. and The Moonshiners take the stage at Franklin Opera House for two shows on Friday, June 7 at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
This is the 2nd Annual Seniors Show, sponsored jointly by The Golden Crest, The NH Veterans Home and The Peabody Home. Each show will feature special wheelchair seating and ticket pricing to accommodate area Seniors, reflecting the Opera House's
commitment to the area's elder community.
E.C. and The Moonshiners are led by Ellen Carlson, the premiere fiddler in the Lakes Region, who will be joined by the likes of Brendan Dowd, Rob Kneeland and Jim Prendergast, whose guitar work has been featured on many country music albums over the years and who has appeared from here to Nashville and back again.
These two performances will also feature guests Joe DeLault and Lee Ames, familiar names to music fans everywhere.
The music can be described as "old time country" or "Texas swing," bringing back memories of Gene Autry, the forties and 78 rpm records. The artistry of E.C. and The Moonshiners, however, gives those old songs new life and if they were classics then, they become quintessential classics in the hands of these fine musicians..
Tickets are available online at franklinoperahouse.org or by calling the Opera House at 934-1901. The box office is open daily, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
