J.D. Newbury "Unplugged" Friday at the Emporium

Texas born and bred Country Singer/Songwriter, J.D. Newbury's earliest musical influences came from his "Uncle" Mickey Newbury at family gatherings where he heard Country legend Newbury originals such as "Just Dropped in (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)," and "American Trilogy" written for Elvis. This early musical education along with the music by Uncle Mickey's buddies Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson and Kris Kristopherson sparked a love of music and the realizaton that country music was in his blood.

Blessed by a deep voice that is instantly recognizable with its heartfelt emotion, J.D. has performed at numerous country venues such as Starvin' Marvin's in Beaumont and Isle of Capri in Lake Charles. On March 22, J.D. will perform an unplugged acoustic concert with his bass guitarist, Kevin Miller right here on Woodville's own Emporium Stage, located at 212 W. Bluff.

The evening will feature both the old and new in country music, including J.D.'s debut single "Beer Makes You Lean." Concert revenue will benefit Woodville's new Emporium Performing Arts Center.

Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and the show will begin at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15 and available at the Art Gallery or "at the door." For information call (409) 283-3832, (409) 283-2788 or check out the websites of the Emporium Stage (www.emporiumstage.org) or J.D. Newbury (www.jdnewbury.net).
