Story and Song on March 21, 2015Saturday, March 21, 2015, brings An Evening of Story and Song to Burns Hall at St. Peter’s Episcopal Parish

International finger-style guitar champion singer/songwriter Tim Thompson will be joined by his son Myles on fiddle.

The unique relationship of a father and son cannot be argued nor explained, but when the relationship includes musical passion, virtuosity and showmanship – magic happens! Tim and Myles Thompson have been inspiring audiences throughout the country. With recent performances that include the Montreal Jazz Festival, Walnut Valley Festival, and the Chet Atkins Festival, they have polished their craft to a fine luster. The duo has opened for Spyro Gyra, Don Williams, Mountain Heart, and Richard Elliot.

Tim is a Nashville based session player, singer/songwriter and the 2008 International Fingerstyle Champion. Music has always filled the Thompson home; unknowingly it inspired Myles to pick up the violin at the tender age of five! By the age of twelve he was studying music theory and improvising with skill beyond his years – it was clear that music would be his life. Today, Myles is also a prolific singer/songwriter and mandolin player. If you ask his dad or an audience member, they will tell you that Myles fancies himself as quite the comedian, most often at his dad’s expense.

This popular concert series is presented by First Coast Community Bank and hosted by Mark & Donna Paz Kaufman.

The concert will take place at 7:30 pm. A $20 donation (100% of which goes to the artists) is requested.
