JOHN TUFF AND FRIENDS

“No ‘Cryin' In Your Beer Old-time Country Music”

John Tuff and Friends make their second appearance on the LBP stage. This very talented group of musicians will provide the audience with a fantastic evening of music consisting of classic country hits of the past.  Their performance will include classic country music, of current and older country legends, such as Johnny Cash, Hank Snow, Ernest Tubb, George Jones, Johnny Horton, and more.  

 These country musicians started out five years ago as a duo performing for a fundraiser at the Englewood United Methodist Church (EUMC). Since that time, it has grown into a group of five gifted musicians singing all over Southwest Florida in a variety of venues.  The emphasis is on old-time country music, the kind many of us grew up with on the family radio.  This show will lift your spirits and bring you back to the old days to a time when folks valued good music, good times, and pride in this great country of ours. If you appreciate this style of traditional country music, come and join us for this tribute to the country hits of the past, featuring many of country fans’ favorite stars and their music. Reserved seat tickets are $18.00 each.

 TIM ALLAN

“String Instrument Concert – A Musical Variety”

Tim’s performance will be a musical variety from jazz to country, popular to sing along. He will even include international songs as well as classics - all played on guitar, banjo, mandolin and ukulele. You may even hear Dueling Banjos. With a natural proficiency on these instruments, along with his smooth baritone vocals in a seemingly inexhaustible supply of popular standards, Tim, a twice North American banjo champion, has enjoyed engagements on television, cruise ships, at top hotels and in concert venues around the world. A special highlight in Tim’s career came in 2002 when he was honored by being inducted into the Banjo Hall Of Fame. In 2015 he was, again, inducted, making him a double inductee to the Banjo Hall Of Fame. For more details, and to see some videos and hear samples of his music, please visit www.timallan.com. Reserved seat tickets are $18.00 each.
