Award-winning songwriter to play at Hank Sr.’s house
Published 3:13 pm Friday, November 20, 2015
Award-winning Nashville songwriter Anne E. DeChant and Alabama author Frye Gaillard will team together to bring a unique program of reading and song to the Hank Williams Sr. Boyhood Home and Museum Dec. 3.
Gaillard, author of more than 20 books, including Watermelon Wine: Remembering the Golden Years of Country Music, will present brief readings from his works, setting the literary context for DeChant’s all-acoustic rendition of her songs.
“Frye and Anne have been doing this at several venues, small and large, and she had an open date between gigs and requested to play at Hiram’s home,” said Margaret Gaston, museum curator.
DeChant, originally from Cleveland, has shared the stage with artists such as Stevie Nicks, Nora Jones and the Indigo Girls and has played in venues ranging from the Bluebird Café to the White House.
Gaillard, the writer in residence at the University of South Alabama, has also co-written songs with Nashville artists Davis Raines, Pamela Jackson, Kathryn Scheldt and DeChant.
The performance in Georgiana will begin at 7 p.m. and is expected to last until 9 p.m.
Tickets are $5 and seating is limited.
