(Jackson,TN) Some of West Tennessee’s finest young musicians will take the stage in the Barnside Room at the Old Country Store restaurant Friday evening, August 1st. Will Tell will perform during the dinner hour beginning at 6:30 pm. Will Tell is a newgrass/folk band comprised of six bright young musicians from the West Tennessee area. The band is made up of Steven Bowman-violin, mandolin, and vocals; Ellen Appleton-violin, mandolin, keyboard and vocals; Jeff Maxwell- acoustic guitar and vocals; Robby Crafton- electric guitar and vocals; Ben Murray- electric bass and Evan Johnson-drums. The band plays a style of music that is completely their own and combines newgrass, folk, and roots music styles along with some modern rock elements. There will be no cover charge for the performance. Deborah Shaw Laman, Marketing Director for the Old Country Store, said, “We are always looking for opportunities to showcase live music and Will Tell is one of the most talented groups we have ever had perform at the Old Country Store. We hope everyone will come out to see these talented young musicians and enjoy an evening of great music with us.” Will Tell writes and performs original music and they have just completed their second CD entitled “Nobody” which is scheduled for release on CD and iTunes in early August.
