mac-press-jim-savarino-photos-by-durbinAcclaimed West Virginia folk musician Jim Savarino will be performing his last performance in West Virginia before he relocates to the West Coast. Savarino, who has been sharing his Appalachian-roots, Americana-tinged sound with the region and the entire US for decades, will perform in MAC’s Tanner Theatre on December 10 at 8 pm.

Savarino, who hails from Wheeling, WV, has accomplished much in his years of West Virginia life. He co-wrote the songs “Grandpa Was A Miner”, “Old Roads Of Home” and “Deep Dark Mine”, with Trae Buckner of the Hillbilly Gypsies on their album, “West Virginia Line”. A version of Jim’s song “The Healer” was covered by the Irish Bluegrass band Carmel Sheerin and the Ravens. His song “Avoca by Night” is in the Smithsonian Folkways – Fast Folk collection. He has also received accolades from the Sierra Club, the Dutch National Radio show “Live uit Lloyd”, and his music was featured in TYRUS – A Documentary Film, directed by Pamela Tom, which appeared in the San Diego Asian Film Fest and Hawaii international Film Fest and the Smithsonian Folkways Recordings.

MAC welcomes all to attend and enjoy the classic Appalachian sounds on December 10. Admission will be $10, and refreshments will be available for purchase.
