Best of the Greenbrier Valley Awards Reception

May 7, 2015 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm


Food by Stella’s, beer, wine and acoustic music by Robin and Doug.

Guitar, cello and vocal duets – an eclectic mix of country, blues, folk, bluegrass and originals

Doug Blankenship is an impressive, self-taught Monroe County guitar finger-picker, with an expressive voice which shows great depth and feeling.  Over the years, he has performed with several area bands playing bluegrass, gospel, rock, folk, blues, and country music.  His favorite music though, is that with lyrics that make you want to cry. It is worth paying attention to his soft interpretations and original compositions (keep a tissue handy).

Robin Wright is recent to the music scene, learning to improvise on the cello with her Friday night home-grown music group, and now to Doug’s mostly mournful melodies.  She started singing with Doug, while listening to her practice CD’s of his music, and found their voices were a natural fit.  Their harmonies run sweet and true!
