Back by popular demand, Drive South will be making their second appearance at the Saugatuck Center for the Arts, 40 Culver St., for the Summer in the Studio concert series. The duo will perform Aug. 22 at 7 p.m. in the Performance Studio. Tickets are $15 and are available online at sc4a.org or by phone at 269-857-2399.
Mary Sue Wilkinson and Roger Brown, both seasoned artists, make up Drive South. The two pair Brown’s accomplished finger style guitar playing and Wilkinson’s rock solid rhythm guitar playing with tight vocal duets and harmonies.
“Something very special happens when Roger and Mary Sue sing together. When you add great songwriting and finger style guitar playing to great vocals you’ve got Drive South,” said David Holt, four-time Grammy Winner, TV and Radio Host, Doc Watson’s Music Partner.
The duo also performs as the core for the country band The Wilenes, who feature vocal duets perfectly matched with Brown’s finger style guitar and Wilkinson’s solid rhythm guitar.
“These two are so great together, their energy and charisma make the show one of a kind,” said Saugatuck Center for the Arts Executive Director Kristen Armstrong. “We are so happy they can come back and perform once again.”
Drive South is the last performance in the Summer in the Studio concert series at the SCA. The series was sponsored by Carol & Greg Josefowicz.
