Emelin Theatre Announces This Weekend's Events
The Emelin Theatre announces the following upcoming events:
Valerie Smith and Liberty Pike | $38 | BLUEGRASS
Feb 17, 2012 @ 8 pm
Described as " one of bluegrass music's most energetic, powerful and personable performers, Valerie Smith and her excellent band, featuring fiddler and songwriter Becky Buller, return to the Emelin for the first time since 2001. There's an old-time feel to Valerie's music that belies her ability to find exceptional songs by today's best writers. Her vocal duets with Becky can be wistful, emotional, funny, and, often, hair-raising."
Galumpha | $18 adults; $13 children | FAMILY
Feb 18, 2012 @ 11 am & 1:30 pm

In appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman, Jerry Lewis's Legendary MDA Telethon, A&E, Showtime, and MTV and in their live performances, they create a sensory feast of images ranging from the ridiculous to the sublime, drawn together into a seamless whole, consistently bringing audiences to their feet.
