2023 Concert Series Announcement

Shane Adkins will kick off the 2023 HTMA/Burritt Concert Series as the featured artist on January 24, 2023.

Shane was recently inducted into the 2022 National Thumbpickers Hall of Fame.  He was inspired by Mose Rager, a thumbpicking pioneer who also influenced Merle Travis and Chet Atkins. He promotes thumb and fingerstyle guitar because he believes it is an American musical art form that should be preserved and shared.

Shane writes historical songs that tell intriguing stories, funny songs full of laughs, and touching songs that tug at the heart strings. In January 2002, he performed "Beans and Taters" on the Grand Ole Opry with Mike Snider. In 2003, Shane won the International "Home of the Legends" Thumbpicking Contest in Muhlenberg County, KY and in September 2005, he won the International Fingerstyle Guitar Championship in Winfield, KS. Shane has completed five albums.

Tickets: $10 in advance $12 at the door. Children 12 & under are free (w/ paying adult)

HTMA Welcomes New Production Volunteers

We're delighted to announce that Tye Davis (doing business as Davis-Giles, LLC) will take over duties as sound technician for our live music productions.

In addition to Tye joining the HTMA crew, Phil Searcy is our new key production logistics person. Phil started in this volunteer position after the August coffeehouse, when he loaded up the collected HTMA PA and light gear in his Honda Pilot and carried it home. Phil’s job is essential for most HTMA performances, and it isn’t easy. This is a huge commitment, and the HTMA community owes Phil a ton of appreciation for offering to take it on. It’s definitely a labor of love.
