Warner Williams and Joyce Ettingoff Perform on Veterans Plaza, Thursday, May 19, 2011 at 7 pm
Join us tonight for another exciting Thursday Plaza Evening performance at the Silver Spring Civic Building. We are pleased to present one of the truly great musicians of our time—Warner Williams—on Veterans Plaza, starting around 7 pm. Joining Warner will be harp stylist Joyce Ettingoff.
Guitarist and songster Warner Williams of Takoma Park MD is one of the greatest unsung heroes of the Piedmont blues—an Eastern seaboard style that incorporates fiddle tunes, ballads, country and popular songs, ragtime, and gospel. With a jaunty rhythmic finger-picked guitar style and an eclectic repertoire that ranges from blues to honky-tonk, jazz crooning to children’s songs, Warner Williams is an old-style community entertainer of national significance. Joyce Ettingoff of Silver Spring is a wonderful harmonica player who plays throughout the metro Washington region, often with the band The Traveling BlueJayes.
