‘Spoon Lady’ concert sold out at WPA Theater

first_img Amanda Smothers was the first person to reserve tickets for the Chris Rodrigues and Abby the Spoon Lady concert and she has been looking forward to the concert since that very day.“I first heard about Abby the Spoon Lady and Chris Rodrigues when someone shared a youtube video of them playing together,” Smothers said. “The video went viral on social media and, from my understanding, has just blown up their following. I had never seen anyone playing spoons but had heard stories before. When I think of someone playing the spoons, I imagine life long before my time, when people made music with whatever they had on hand at the time. Curiosity draws people in. “Abby Roach has got this amazing technique and rhythm that involves so much movement and expression. And Chris plays a resonator guitar, sings and writes so many of their songs. Their sound is unique and something you won’t see anywhere else. The entire act is like watching art come alive in front of you. I’m so excited to see and hear them play.” Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Print Article Michael Reno Harrell, popular storyteller at the annual Pike Piddlers Storytelling Festival, said he had the pleasure of interviewing Abby Roach and Chris Rodrigues at the National Storytelling Festival in October and what a pleasure it was.“These two performers are as unique and entertaining an act as anyone could wish to see and a freight train load of rhythm and fun,” Harrell said. “Y’all will have fun.” Book Nook to reopen Latest Stories Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day By The Penny Hoarder You Might Like Excavator wrecks power lines, shuts down U.S. Highway 231 U.S. Highway 231 was completely shut down for an hour Thursday morning after an excavator hit a power pole, bringing… read more Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration By Jaine Treadwell ‘Spoon Lady’ concert sold out at WPA Theater Sponsored Content Email the author Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies Are… Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?
