Award winning songwriter, Kevin Dudley, will play guitar and sing songs about love, death, diners and most everything in between in a benefit concert at Creative Cauldron at ArtSpace on Friday, August 3 at 8 pm.
Born in Dallas, Texas and now residing in Virginia, Kevin’s music is a gumbo mix of Western swing, blues, traditional country, Cajun and bluegrass with thoughtful, clever and often humorous lyrics delivered in a soft, dusty baritone.
Kevin released his first solo CD, “Texarkana Diner” in November 2011 and the title track received a Mid-Atlantic Songwriter Contest (MASC) Silver Award as well as the Nashville/Paramount Grand Prize for Fall 2011. Four other tracks on the album received a “Finalist” or “Honorable Mention” award.
Tickets are $20 Adults and $18 Students/Seniors. All proceeds from Friday’s performance will benefit Creative Cauldron. To order tickets, go to www.creativecauldron.org
Creative Cauldron at ArtSpace is located at 410 S. Maple Avenue. Free parking is available in the garages at 410 and 400 S. Maple Avenue.
