Summer Concert Series: Chris Haddox

6:30 p.m.

Chris Haddox is a West Virginia born (Logan) and based (Morgantown) musician who’s never met a stringed instrument he couldn’t master. He writes and sings his voluminous collection of songs about (to quote him) “religion, firearms, courthouse squares, goats on trampolines, shoes, fiddles, and hurricanes”—whatever catches his eye. He continues, “Like most writers, I try to find new ways to address old topics. Some songs are funny, some sad, some sarcastic but they are all honest–even the ones that are full of lies.”

This stellar musician is also a community leader who has directed Habitat for Humanity and worked to preserve old neighborhoods, a WVU professor of sustainable design, and an amateur musicologist who researches musicians from the southern coalfields of West Virginia. That’s a lot of breadth for someone the music community knows as a well-loved, easy-going consummate picker and gifted songwriter in the traditional folk, country, and Americana vein.

His general affability and openness belie stunningly deft musicianship and deeply affecting songwriting. He has a genius for making connections with the audience. In short, Chris Haddox represents everything that is good about West Virginia.

Bring your favorite blanket or camp chair and join us for an evening of music on the Event Lawn. $5 for WVBG members, $10 for non-members.
