RE: Historic Ritz Theatre Welcomes the Return of Edgar Loudermilk featuring Jeff Autry
Toccoa, GA – October 8, 2018 – Main Street Toccoa is pleased to continue the second annual Night at the Ritz series with a performance by local favorite Edgar Loudermilk featuring Jeff Autry on Thursday, October 18, 2018 at 7pm.
Edgar Loudermilk’s signature voice, bass skills, and songwriting are a family tradition for this Louvin Brothers’ descendant. Having experienced a long tenure of performing, including several industry awards, with IIIrd Tyme Out, Rhonda Vincent, and Marty Raybon, in 2015 he stepped out forming his own band with the highly acclaimed guitarist, Jeff Autry. Edgar’s band has released two projects, with the 2016 release of “Georgia Maple” debuting at #4 on the Billboard charts (July, 2016). A highly anticipated new release on Pinecastle Records is scheduled for the summer of 2018.
The musical styling of the band encompasses bluegrass, swing, gospel, and Americana genres.
Night at the Ritz, a regular event series at the Historic Ritz Theatre, is funded, in part, by a generous
grant received from the Georgia Council for the Arts. Tickets for all shows may be purchased online, at the Toccoa Welcome Center, or at the theatre box office before showtime. Adult tickets are $10,
children under 12 are $5, and students with an ID are also $5.
