Floyd Cramer’s Classic “slip note” style of piano music was brought to the James W. Warren Citizens Center in Lincolnton Saturday, April 27 by the Lincoln County Concert Association.

Jason Coleman, grandson of Floyd Cramer, has built his career on the relationship he formed with his grandfather during their short time together and his innate passion for music. Cramer passed away from cancer when Jason was 12-years-old. Cramer’s unique touch at the piano is alive and powerful today – not only in the hearts of countless fans and followers – but also though the music of Jason as he carries on his grandfather’s legacy in a show entitled “The Legacy of Floyd Cramer Featuring Jason Coleman”.

Cramer’s piano was an essential part of the “Nashville Sound” genre of music during the 1950s and 60s and his signature style can be heard on the classic songs of music legends like Jim Reeves, Roy Orbison, The Everly Brothers, Patsy Cline and Elvis Presley. Cramer enjoyed a successful career for more than40 years as a solo recording artist, session pianist, and touring concert performer. His impact on the music industry earned him numerous honors and awards over his lifetime, though none as prestigious as his posthumous inductions into both the Country Music and Rock and Roll Halls of Fame in 2003.
