Support Henry County Virginia Elementary Schools with
Benefit ShowOn October 15, 2011 Junior Sisk and Ramblers participated in a benefit concert to help raise funds for the Henry County Virginia Elementary School.
The concert was aimed at helping raise funds to support the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO). The money raised from the concert will go toward helping with programs in the schools, specifically assisting with buildings and grounds improvements.
Junior Sisk and Ramblers Choice were the headliners for the event and were joined by a number of other regional and local bands including: Gone Fishin', Johnnie and Diane Vaught, The Fork Mountain Gospel Singers, David McMillen, and After Jack.
The concert extended through the afternoon with a chili bean lunch and games for the kids. The event was well attended and supported by the local community and residents.
"We are excited to help the kids in our home area of Virginia." said Sisk. "This is a great way for us to use our talents to give back to the community. It's a good feeling to know that we can help in some small way."
This week their latest CD-The Heart of a Song reached the top 15 on the Bluegrass Billboard Charts and the single, A Far Cry From Lester and Earl reached number 11 on the BMP Chart for October.
About Junior Sisk:
Junior Sisk has lived most of his life in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia where he listened to and played the music that was born in the hills of his home state. His songwriting helped The Lonesome River Band in its ascent to bluegrass stardom in the early 1990’s. His lonesome, haunting singing earned him the devotion of traditional bluegrass fans a few years later as a member of Wyatt Rice & Santa Cruz. Subsequently he assembled Rambler’s Choice, which released the acclaimed Sounds Of The Mountains in 1998, and contributed to the IBMA award winning The Stanley Gospel Tradition. A brief stint with The Lost and Found followed before Junior took the lead vocal role for BlueRidge. Junior has been nominated many times for Songwriter and Male Vocalist Of The Year with the International Bluegrass Music Association and Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music. Junior is now back in action with a new lineup of his own Ramblers Choice and loving it! Junior leads Rambler’s Choice in music that moves between uptempo driving bluegrass and country-inspired songs. At the end of it all, it’s the hard drivng, traditional bluegrass sounds of Junior Sisk & Ramblers Choice that keep audiences coming back for more!
