The Livingston Arts Council is delighted to present up-and-coming country duo The Young Fables, appearing live on Sunday, May 5, at the Howell Opera House.
The Young Fables (TYF) are a promising musical group comprised of three-time American Idol vet Laurel Wright and accomplished guitarist and vocalist Wesley Lunsford. The act hails from Maryville, TN and has already collected impressive accolades including the Grand Prize at the Texaco Country Showdown which landed Laurel on the Ryman Auditorium stage at age 16.
Fast forward five years to 2017, TYF spent the year engaging and organically expanding their grassroots following while on the road supporting their debut release Two. They’ve appeared with such notable acts as Lauren Alaina, Josh Turner, Sara Evans, Chris Janson, Randy Houser, The Band Perry and Chris Lane.
This year, TYF have wrapped recording on their sophomore album titled ‘Old Songs’ with the Grammy Award winning producer Mitch Dane (Jars of Clay, Brandon Heath & Caedmon’s Call). These ten songs establish The Young Fables’ sonic home in the Country/Americana community as a modern proclaimer and preservationist of classic country’s storytelling roots.
Doors will open at 6:30 pm and the show will begin at 7. Admission is $15 in advance and can be purchased online at www.howelloperahouse.com or by phone at 517-540-0065. If any tickets remain the day of, they will be sold at the door for $18.
