(Editor’s Note: The following news release was written by promoters for the Kenneth Threadgill Concert Series in Greenville. The Kenneth Threadgill Concert Series opens its ninth season on Saturday night, February 25th with a Showcase of Five Deca

des of Trendsetting Country-Rock.

Chris Hillman

The legendary Chris Hillman and longtime musical partner Herb Pedersen will bring their acoustic duo to the historic stage of the Municipal Auditorium in Downtown Greenville at 7:30 pm for a full set of their timeless music, followed by a full set by Radney Foster, Bill Lloyd and their four piece band. The Kenneth Threadgill Concert Series presents a special country-rock double bill featuring Foster & Lloyd in a full band performance, and the legendary Chris Hillman (Byrds, The Flying Burrito Brothers, Manassas, Desert Rose Band) performing with his longtime musical partner and great LA session musician Herb Pedersen (Linda Rondstadt, Desert Rose Band) at the historic Municipal Auditorium. These trendsetting duos paved rozerem canada pharmacy the way for the California country rock sound of the 70’s, the edgy Nashville country of the late 80’s and the alt country of the last twenty years. Get ready for “Turn, Turn, Turn” “Texas in 1880”, “Crazy Over You”, “Mr Tamborine Man” “Eight Miles High”, “Wheels” (Hillman/Gram Parsons co-write), “Sure Thing”, and on and on. Don’t be surprised if Chris and Herb play some bluegrass and gospel too. These artists should be listed in Webster’s under “country-rock” and “Americana”; they define and in many ways created and shaped the genres. This is truly an awesome double bill. Full sets by both acts, Chris and Herb duo acoustic, then F&L with their full four piece electrified band.
