Shades Mountain Air will bring their special mix of bluegrass, newgrass, and gospel to the Leeds Arts Center on Saturday, August 19, at 7:00 pm. All seats are $10.
Shades Mountain Air has been together since 1998, performing at a wide variety of venues. The members are: Nancy Womble on bass and lead vocals; Gary Furr on guitar and vocals; Greg Womble on banjo and vocals; Don Wendorf on banjo, mandolin and hammer dulcimer; and Melanie Richardson Rogers on fiddle and vocals. They have all been playing and singing for many years and all have performed with other groups and bands. Their musical experiences are as diverse as classical, folk, rock and roll, and contemporary Christian. However, they have found a common love in original acoustic music, roots music, and bluegrass.
They describe themselves as “an acoustic band that mixes modern, traditional, and gospel bluegrass styles”. You will hear a little of everything from Bill Monroe to James Taylor and even something they call “mariachigrass” along with original compositions by Gary. Tight vocals, solid arrangements, good picking, and high energy is coming your way!
Reservations are not required, but if you wish to make reservations, call the LAC office at 205-699-1892. Leave your name, phone number, and the number of tickets you need and we will return your call. We are handicapped accessible so let someone know before showtime if you need special seating.

October 14th-16th and 21st-23rd, Friday and Saturday show time at 7 pm, Sunday show time at 2 pm- Leeds Arts Council is proud to present Ed Sala’s Bloody Murder directed by Cliff Keen, Jr.
From Dramatic Publishing – A group of the usual British murder-mystery types gather for a weekend retreat at the sumptuous country estate of the esteemed Lady Somerset. There’s the major who served in India; the inebriated, fading actor; the innocent ingénue; the exotic lady in red; the mysterious Chinese gentleman; the rich dowager aunt and her faithful maid and worthless nephew. Suddenly, one of them dies of poison! Well, of course. Oh, what fun! But wait … Her Ladyship refuses to summon the police! She says she won’t go through all this, again. All what, again? And why were they all invited here in the first place? Is this actually just another formulaic, all-too-predictable mystery story? Or is it something diabolically … different? … Characters rebel against their author- It’s bloody murder.
Tickets are $10 and seating will be reserved; however reservations aren’t required. The Leeds Theatre and Arts Center is located at 8140 Parkway Drive in historic downtown Leeds.
