Appalachian musical group Sunset Dawn will perform at the Historic Hoosier Theater during the Aug. 9 Shows of Second Saturday. Presented by Vevay Main Street, the event will begin at 7 p.m. at the theater located on Ferry Street in downtown Vevay. Four women—Fran Booth, Nancy Cook, Madgelee Moore and Sherry Cook Stanforth—make up the troupe that grew up singing and playing music in the Appalachian tradition. Along with singing, the group is accomplished in many instruments including the mountain lap dulcimer, guitar, banjimer, autoharp, tin whistle, flute and harmonica. In their lyrics are powerful stories of work, play, love, loss, battle, land and family. Sharing these tunes with others, Sunset Dawn hopes “to keep them—and their proud history—from fading away.” The group also finds great inspiration within their audience. All are invited to join in with their music while they’re on the stage, and to mingle with them afterwards. They enjoy talking about songs, instruments and the Appalachian culture. Sunset Dawn has performed all over the Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, North Carolina, Tennessee regions at festivals, fairs, schools and special events. They also teach workshops that feature ensemble-style playing on the mountain lap dulcimer and tin whistle. They have two CDs including From One Time to Another and their latest, Stone Soup. Tickets are $10 ($7 for children 12 and under) at the Switzerland County Visitors Center, located at 128 West Main Street in downtown Vevay. For more information call 812-427-3237 or 1-800-HELLO-VV.
