Country Blues with Radcliffe & Dillon in Foxboro, Thursday, Sept. 5

COUNTRY BLUES
with RADCLIFFE & DILLON

at Marilyn Rodman Performing Arts Center

Thursday, Sep 5, 7:30 PM



The Marilyn Rodman Performing Arts Center (formerly the Orpheum) in the center of Foxboro has opened a new, intimate listening room for musical performers called the Upper Lobby. This 32-seat venue provides seating at tables, allowing ordering of drinks and snacks during the show.

One of the first performances in this new venue will be the country blues duo of Ragtime Jack Radcliffe and Sherman Lee Dillon
COUNTRY BLUES  with RADCLIFFE & DILLON

'Ragtime' Jack has been performing for more than 30 years. He is a master of traditional country blues and ragtime and stride piano, and a powerful singer/songwriter. He also accompanies himself on the keyboard, guitar and fiddle. He was inducted into the Old-Time Music Association Hall of Fame in 2014.

Jack's performances always include a lot of uplifting wit, historical anecdotes and connections with local lore, wherever he performs. His background in journalism amplifies a lifelong quest for the cultural framework of his music and the places he performs.

Sherman Lee Dillon was born in Meadville, Mississippi (pop 451) in 1951, and grew up 15 miles outside of town. Many of his family members were into music, and he learned to play piano, guitar, harmonica, banjo, steel guitar, and other instruments.

One night a band from McComb (Bo Didley's home) drove up at the Dillon house. They asked him to be their guitar player and go to Baton Rouge, Louisiana to make a record with them. At the age of 16 Sherman left home and has been playing music professionally ever since.

Deciding to be a regional performer has actually worked quite well. Sherman has performed in various configurations on shows with B.B. King, Johnny Winter, Koko Taylor, Little Milton, Bobby Rush, and many others. He also consulted and played in O Brother, Where Art Thou?

Tickets are $15, available at the Orpheum Theatre box office, 508-543-2787, or online at Orpheum website https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pe.c/10447634. For more information, call 508-543-2787 or email boxoffice@orpheum.org.

Wrentham native Ayla Brown returns to THE BLACK BOX on February 17

Country music recording artist and Wrentham native Ayla Brown headlines a New England Artists Series concert at THE BLACK BOX in downtown Franklin on Friday, February 17 at 8 p.m

The singer-songwriter, athlete, and TV personality experienced early recognition in 2006 as a Season 5 semi-finalist on the Fox-TV phenomenon, American Idol. The singing competition has launched the recording careers of superstars Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Chris Daughtry, Academy Award winner Jennifer Hudson and many more.

Wrentham native Ayla Brown returns to THE BLACK BOX

Since then, Ayla’s career has taken her to the legendary stages of the Grand Ole Opry and Ryman Auditorium. She has opened for numerous country music stars, including Jason Aldean, Clint Black, Charlie Daniels, Sara Evans, Tracy Lawrence, Loretta Lynn, Craig Morgan, Darius Rucker, Josh Turner and Chris Young. Ayla has also made multiple CMA Music Festival appearances and was a national news correspondent for The Early Show on CBS.

She recorded her self-titled country music album, Ayla Brown, at Ronnie’s Place, the Nashville studio of legendary country music star Ronnie Milsap. Ayla produced the album from her own record label, Ambient Entertainment, and wrote seven of the CD’s nine tracks.

Her 2012 sophomore release, a patriotic-inspired album titled Heroes & Hometowns, peaked at #1 on Amazon MP3 and reached #51 on iTunes. Ayla performed two singles from the album, “Pride of America” and “Hero in Her Hometown,” with the Boston Pops in 2013 during the July 4th Fireworks Spectacular on the Esplanade. A portion of every CD sale of Heroes & Hometowns benefits Hugs for Heroes, Inc., a Massachusetts-based military nonprofit. Ayla has entertained American troops overseas in Afghanistan, Spain, Italy, Greece, Turkey and Egypt.

Ayla’s most recent album, Let Love In, was released in 2015. The full-length, 13-song album was sponsored by the popular Texas Roadhouse restaurant chain, and two of Ayla’s songs, “Matches and Gasoline” and the album’s title track, are in rotation in every Texas Roadhouse jukebox throughout the country. On Valentine’s Day, Ayla will release a brand new single, “Take Your Name.”

Tickets for Ayla Brown’s concert at THE BLACK BOX are $22 (adults) and $20 (students/seniors). For tickets and more information, visit www.THEBLACKBOXonline.com or call (508) 528-3370.
