Bobby Horton was born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama. In 1984, Horton was asked to produce the score for a feature film set in 1863 in Southern Indiana. While researching music from the mid 19th century, he uncovered literally thousands of tunes from that period. Combining his passion for music and Civil War history, he began recording what has now
become fourteen volumes of authentic Civil War tunes in his home studio— playing all of the period era instruments and singing all the parts himself.This series is sold around the world and has led to a career in film scoring and a live presentation of these songs with the stories that accompany them. A seasoned performer, Horton is a multi-instrumentalist, composer,
producer, and music historian. He has performed with the musical- comedy trio, Three On A String, throughout the United States and Canada for 35 plus years. He has also produced and performed music scores for ten PBS films by Ken Burns including “The Civil War, and “Baseball,” two films for the A&E network, and sixteen films for The National Park Service. His series of recordings of authentic period music has been acclaimed by historical organization and publications through America and Europe.

Tennessee Valley Theatre in Spring City will present Carrie Hassler and Hard Rain on Saturday, October 18, at 7:30 PM. Cost is $10. For reservations, go to tennesseevalleytheatre.com or call 423-365-PLAY.
“The hills of Southeast Tennessee are alive with the sound of music. The acoustics of the banjo, mandolin, fiddle and harmonica hover over the landscape like the smoky haze known to float above the region’s mountains and valleys, and voices rise from its waters. Musical roots here are deep, and a new generation of musicians is building upon that foundation.
Carrie Hassler of Pikeville, Tenn., is one of those voices. Her pure vocals launched her into bluegrass stardom in 2006 with the release of the album “Carrie Hassler and Hard Rain” on Rural Rhythm Records; and today, she is one of the region’s leading ladies of bluegrass, with a voice that is often compared to Etta James, Patsy Cline and Alison Krauss.

About the play: CHRISTMAS COMES TO DETROIT LOUIE
In this rest home-clinic setting on Christmas Eve, a group of people are waiting to see the doctor. Among them are Detroit Louie, the hard-hearted pickpocket; Harry, his dumb, but loyal right-hand man; John and Cara, who have just brought their father to be committed permanently and the Old Man, who refuses to believe his son would do such a thing. Also present are Mrs. Aiken, the hypochondriac, and the Blind Girl, who believes strongly in helping others; and Angel No. 2, who is on probation. She must make this mission count in order to get her wings back. She has permission to grant just one wish in this particular room and it is a very hard decision.

The play tells the story of three lifelong widowed friends who bicker and tease, hug and love, misbehave and forgive. Lucille (Anita Hale) is sassy and promiscuous, a feisty embodiment of the girl who just wants to have fun. Doris (Karen Slikker) is priggish and judgmental, while Ida (Teresa Congioloso) is patient and sweet tempered, but finally ready to begin a new life.
When Sam (Mike Jackson) the butcher enters the picture, Ida is smitten. Uptight, clingy Doris connives with Lucille to squash the budding romance between Sam and Ida. They are guilt stricken when their meddling nearly breaks poor Ida ́s heart. These women will touch your heart as you follow the choices they make in their lives. They will not be reduced to being just a “Cemetery Club”.
Directed by Kathy Soja.
