A Band Called Honalee @ Woodrow Wilson High School Auditorium
Oct 4 @ 7:30 pm

Beckley Concert Association presents A Band Called Honalee.

A modern-day folk trio inspired by the music and legacy of Peter, Paul and Mary.  Musically accomplished, interactive and energetic, their shows allow audiences to experience this timeless music live onstage once again. The group believes the melodies and messages of the 1960’s folk and folk/rock era are just as relevant today as they were when they were first sung, perhaps even more so. Their mission is to share this uniquely American music with new audiences, while rekindling the passion of life-long fans.

Performance starts at 7:30 at Woodrow Wilson High School Auditorium in Beckley.
