The Jackson County library is hosting a free concert featuring Alma Russ on Feb. 5, at 7 p.m. in the Community Room. The concert will feature Russ on fiddle as well as vocals while playing the guitar and banjo.
Russ's style of music encompasses bluegrass, old-time mountain music, and folk music, with a few eclectic song choices thrown into the mix. Russ is 13 years old and has been singing for most of her life. Only in the last three years has she begun to incorporate instrumentation along with her singing. She has played with Heritage Alive, Dusk Weaver, and the Lifeway Community Church worship band.
