Wood Family Tradition at Cultural Center
See information about other things happening this weekend in our CHURCH NEWS article and other articles in our RELIGION section as well as on our EVENTS CALENDAR.

Wayne Howard

It's just this writer's opinion, but I was disappointed with that the Academy of Country Music now calls bluegrass.  Of course, I'm much, much older than the ACM and while I like some of today's country music, I'm still fond of the country classics from George Jones, Loretta Lynn, Merle Haggard, Tammy Wynette, and Hank Williams; and my collection also includes some Bob Wills and Ernest Tubb music.  

That said, the show the Lincoln Cultural Center will present this Saturday night will include the on-stage debut of one new bluegrass song and a good mixture of songs that will please both late arriving fans (not late to the show, just those who have only recently come to like bluegrass) and those who favor traditional sounds.  As another publication said, "Stemming from the legacy of hard driving, traditional, and original bluegrass music that the legendary banjoist/singer/songwriter Al Wood began in the 60’s, Mike, Bobby, Jason, and Brian were raised on a strict diet of bluegrass and bluegrass gospel music."  That brings us to this Saturday's show and the Wood Family Tradition.  The group plays a lot of old country songs, old bluegrass music and many of Al Wood’s old songs, but they've also added a lot of new material, and as said, those who attend Saturday's show will get to hear their first concert performance of one of those new songs.  

Tickets for the show are available at  They're $15...not bad for a great evening of entertainment.   The show begins at 7 PM at the Lincoln Cultural Center, 403 E. Main St. (at Cedar St.) in Lincolnton.
