The Jackson County Public Library in downtown Sylva hosts a daytime music program on the first Friday of every month featuring the “The Lady and the Old Timers Band.”
The December performance will be held on Friday, Dec. 2, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Community Room of the Jackson County Public Library Complex.
The monthly performance by the band allows people who may not want to venture out at night to hear live music from local musicians. The Lady and the Old Timers Band is composed of one lady and seven self-described old timers, five of whom are over the age of 80. They play gospel and traditional country tunes. Members include vocalist Delia Sears along with Fred Kirkland, Jim Hite, and Jim Brown on guitar; Carl Sears on bass; “Wild Bill” Jackson on harmonica; Robert Bradley on mandolin; and Roy Ramsey on dobro.
