Due to illness, Sheila Kay Adams is not available to perform her previously scheduled concert this weekend. We wish her a full recovery! Laura Boosinger of Marshall, NC, will perform in her stead. You can still listen to an interview with Adams, conducted by NC Museum of History’s Education Section Chief B.J. Davis, in which Adams talks about performing and preserving the songs that have been handed down through her family since the mid-1700s. (Approximate run time: 21 minutes.)

Boosinger is an award-winning performer, educator, and recording artist. Her concert performances offer a step back to a simpler time, awakening memories for the old and gently instilling important cultural lessons for her audience. Boosinger got her start at Warren Wilson College, where she studied old-time banjo and traditional music with David Holt. After graduating, she began performing with the Luke Smathers Band from Haywood County and has recorded a tribute to her mentors called Let Me Linger. Boosinger frequently performs with David Holt and the Lightning Bolts and has released recordings with legendary guitarist George Shuffler and the young multi-instrumentalist Josh Goforth. In addition to Let Me Linger, her recordings include Mountain Treasures (with George Shuffler), Down the Road, Most of All, and Sing it Yourself.
