Mountain Music and Medicine Show is
live on Saturday, April 27
8:00pm, in the Historic Holly Theater in
downtown Dahlonega, Georgia. Come join Doc for some lively
entertainment and some great music with guests, Jones
Family Band for the pre show, Ugly Cousin, Alex and Cheryll Thomlinson,
and American Honey and the Wild Turkeys for the radio show.
Originating in Dahlonega, Georgia, the MOUNTAIN MUSIC
& MEDICINE SHOW has won three GABBY awards from the Georgia
Association of Broadcasters for the best locally produced radio program in
the State of Georgia. Amazing, especially considering that the MMMS is an all volunteer effort.
The setting is Dahlonega from Gold Rush days of the
early 1800s to modern times of the early 1950s---? Doc Johnson's traveling
Miracle Medicine Show has come to town and set up on the Square in front of
Nix's Store, the hub of local commerce and social center of the area. Doc brings musical acts of the time with
him as well as his own brand of humor while he exhorts folks to buy his "Wizard
Water" elixir for improving their lives.
He also showcases local talent on his show. Folks come from all around to hear the
music & Doc. His fast-paced
style and rapport with the crowd keeps toes a-tapping and things moving briskly
along. The scene occasionally
shifts to "street scene " short
skits where local people comment on the goings on of the day, mixing local
history, culture and humor in the unique Southern Appalachian style of the time
period. This is all presented in a
live old-time Radio broadcast; sort of like going back in time without leaving
your living room!
The Mountain Music and Medicine Show is performed before a live audience
at the Historic Holly Theater on W. Main St. (just off the Square) in
Dahlonega. All shows are two hours, and are at 8pm, with $15
admission. We will follow the Holly system of assigned seating,
though all seats will be the same price.
