Blues rocker, Angie Fletcher playing free show at Ro-Na tonight
IRONTON — Soulful blues rocker Angie Fletcher will be singing at 6:30 p.m. tonight, Tuesday, Aug. 27, as part of the St. Mary’s Feel Good Concert Series in downtown Ironton.
Normally, the two-hour-long free concerts are out on the depot plaza, but have been moved inside to the historic Ro-Na Theater, 310 S. 3rd St., Ironton, because of threat of rain.
Accompanying Fletcher, the singer/songwriter known for such originals as “The Hills of West Virginia,” and raucous covers of everything from Bonnie Raitt to Fleetwood Mac, will be joined by an all-star band that includes: guitarist Mike Allen, drummer Dewey Frye, and bassist/vocalist, Bill Fraley.
Fletcher will also be joined on stage by her daughter Ally, who plays drums and guitar and who has been writing her own songs as well.
“I’m so thrilled to be playing with a full band..and just so happens these guys are some of the best musicians ever and John Griffiths will be taking care of the sound — we are gonna have fun,” Fletcher announced on her Facebook page. “ Also, Ally will be performing too. It's so cool to do these things with my daughter.”
