Marty Stuart Set To Perform In Hamlin

This appeared in the Charleston Gazette - May 24, 2007

Country music entertainer Marty Stuart will perform in Hamlin on Sunday, May 27, 2007 as part of the Live@Lincoln concert series.

Because of high demand for tickets, an additional 200 seats are available for the 8 p.m. concert at Lincoln County High School. The concert series is presented by Lincoln Friends of the Arts.

Stuart was a 13-year-old kid from Mississippi when he joined Lester Flatt and the Nashville Grass in 1972. His mandolin solo on Bill Monroe's "Rawhide" became his showcase number with the band and was captured at a 1974 concert at Vanderbilt University for Flatt's "Live Bluegrass Festival" album.

His latest CD, Compadres, tells the story of his growth as a musician and performer. It's an album of collaborations with the artists who have meant the most to him over the years, including Lester Flatt, Steve Earle and the Old Crow Medicine Show as well as Johnny Cash and Mavis Staples.

Stuart will be joined on Sunday by his band, the Fabulous Superlatives, which includes Kenny Vaughan, Harry Stinson and Brian Glenn.
