Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver coming to MAC

Goodtyme Productions will present Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver at the Mountain Arts Center in Prestonsburg on Saturday, Feb. 28 at 7:30 p.m. The opening act will be The Carriere Family.

“In April 1979, I formed a group that I first named Doyle Lawson & Foxfire but soon changed to Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver,” Doyle Lawson said. “I was looking for ‘our sound’ and that first group tried many different types of songs. I wanted a strong quartet like the ones my dad used to sing with. In the next few months, Terry Baucom, Jimmy Haley, Lou Reid and I laid the foundation for what has become the Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver sound.”

“The makeup of my band has changed many times in the last 20 years,” Lawson added. “I jokingly tell folks that Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver is the ‘farm team’ for bluegrass. I try to integrate each member’s special talents into my group, while not sacrificing the Quicksilver sound. While the sound changes a bit with the introduction of a new band member, it is important to me that people hear what they expect to hear when we take the stage, no matter who is in the group. “

Tickets for the show are $16 and $18 and are now on sale at the MAC. Call toll-free 1-888-MAC-ARTS to reserve your seats or for other ticket information.
