An Evening with John Wyatt the Appalachian

  • Beckley Art Center 600 Johnstown Road Beckley, WV 25801 USA (map)

The Beckley Art Center is proud to host the musical talents and phenomenal storytelling of local legend John Wyatt: The Appalachian.  His songs and stories of the mountains transport you back to another time and place drawing upon his personal experiences growing up in rural Appalachia in the 1950s and 1960s.  Wyatt’s music and storytelling celebrates the common bonds of faith and family and what it means to be Appalachian. His music has been described as having a hint of the old Carter style of playing with ballads with a smooth-sounding voice that will make you reminiscent of country legends like Kenny Rogers. Wyatt’s stories also come from those experiences of growing up in rural Appalachia in the 1950s and 1960s. John Wyatt will perform live at the Beckley Art Center, 600 Johnstown Road on August 25th starting at 6 pm. Tickets are $15 are will be on sale up until the evening of the event by calling 304-253-9226. RSVP today!
