February 24 will be a homecoming concert for Uncle Henry's Favorites, who have fiddled
and sung their traditional old-time music together since 1985. The band started playing
together informally in the 1970's, primarily at jam sessions at 214 and at local dances.
Pete Vigour (banjo, guitar, fiddle), Ellen Vigour (mandolin, dancer caller), Jim Childress
(fiddle, guitar), and Mark Beall (bass) have developed their own distinctive blend of fiddle
tunes, old country songs, skits, and ballads. Uncle Henry's Favorites are active in the
Charlottesville Friends of Old-Time Music (C-FOOT) and the Charlottesville Tune School (C-
TUNES), new organizations at 214.
Opening the show will be the newly-formed band Naked Creek, with versatile fiddler Aaron
Olwell and a hot rhythm section of Marc Perdue, banjo, Lorie Lichtenwalner, guitar, and
Rachel Vigour, bass.
The 214 Community Arts Center is newly organized to operate a vibrant, non-profit
community arts center, particularly focusing on promoting and supporting traditional music
and dance and providing opportunities for education, participation, performance, and
