Traditional ballads and fiddle tunes will be heard at the Richard B. Russell Building Special Collections Libraries June 15 to celebrate the recently released book Mary Lomax Ballad Book-America’s Great 21st Century Ballad Singer by Art Rosenbaum, art professor emeritus.
Singers and sisters Mary Lomax and Bonnie Loggins will perform a set of traditional ballads at 3 p.m. in the auditorium. Also performing will be Loggins’ son, Casey, and nonagenarian fiddler Roy Tench, who grew up as a neighbor to the sisters.
After the performance there will be a reception and an opportunity to purchase The Mary Lomax Ballad Book and have it signed by Rosenbaum and the performers. The program is open free to the public.
