Autoharper, storyteller to headline 2nd concert in Lakeside House Concert series

Tuesday, September 7, 2010

In the second of a three-concert series, Lakeside House Concerts at Heritage Lake is proud to host master autoharper/singer/song writer/storyteller Bryan Bowers.

The show will be held in the Heritage Lake Activities Center starting at 6 p.m. Sunday. The cost is $10 per person.

From his rather unglamorous beginning as a street singer, Bryan Bowers has become a major artist on the traditional music circuit. He has redefined the autoharp and is also well known as a singer-songwriter.

Bryan has a dynamic outgoing personality and an uncanny ability to enchant a crowd in practically any situation. His towering 6-foot-4 frame can be wild and zany on stage while playing a song like "Dixie;" five minutes later he can have the same audience singing "Will The Circle Be Unbroken" in quiet reverence and delight.

Bowers's creativity and talent have won him induction into Frets Magazine's First Gallery of the Greats after five years of winning the stringed instrument, open category of the magazine's readers poll. This distinction put Bowers alongside other luminaries, such as Chet Atkins, David Grisman, Stephan Grappelli, Itzhak Perlman, Tony Rice, Rob Wasserman and Mark O'Connor, each recognized for their own personal accomplishments.

In 1993, Bryan was inducted into the Autoharp Hall of Fame to stand only with Maybelle Carter, Kilby Snow and Sara Carter.

For nearly three decades, Bowers has been to the autoharp what Earl Scruggs was to the five-string banjo. He presents instrumental virtuosity combined with warmth, eloquence, expression and professionalism. Don't miss this rare Indiana appearance.

Reservations for the show are recommended, as space is limited. To make reservations and get directions to the Heritage Lake Activities Center, call Kate Robertson at 386-2259 or e-mail her at katerobbie@sbcglobal.net
