Coolwater concerts return to action

The Coolwater House Concert Series in Ahwahnee is ready to host a variety of world class musicians.

A concert slated for 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 24 at the Coolwater Ranch will feature Tim and Myles Thompson, a father and son duo from Tennessee that staff said will knock your socks off.

The Thompsons have toured the U.S. and Europe, playing festivals, teaching clinics and delighting audiences everywhere with their high energy music.

In 2008, Tim Thompson won the coveted International Guitar Championship held annually at the Walnut Valley Music Festival. His background in Latin jazz, rock, pop and classical music gives him a range of styles that entertain and energize his audience.

Myles Thompson has been playing and touring with his father since he was about 13. Now 22, Myles has developed into a phenomenal musician in his own right, excelling at violin and mandolin. Myles' talent complements his father's perfectly. The Thompsons write most of their own material, and their ability to arrange harmonies with their voices as well as their instruments provides music lovers with a most entertaining and musically satisfying evening!

Passes are available at Oakhurst Feed as well as Mountain Feed and Nursery.
