Out & About: Country pop duo plays Great American Music gig

Shirley McMarlin

What qualifies as Great American Music?

Country pop is one such genre, according to the latest installment of the concert series of the same name at The Westmoreland Museum of American Art in Greensburg.

The museum hosted Willow Hill, the husband-and-wife duo of C.T. and Alexandra Fields, for a March 20 show. Area natives, the pair have recently recored in Nashville and toured the Virgin Islands.

After an acoustic opening set, bass guitarist Nick Quinn and drummer Shawn King joined in. The four also perform together as “swagger rock” band Lovebettie — though Quinn noted that Lovebettie is mostly on hiatus these days due to the Fieldses current focus on country.

Kori Wood and Chris Price handled sound and lights.

In introductory remarks, Director of Visitor Experience and Events Randall Oaks said that, beginning in May, the Great American Music Series will merge with the monthly Art on Tap happy hour into a new event called Art on Tap 2.0.

With expanded features and hours, Art on Tap 2.0 debuts April 12 with the 1491s, a Native American sketch comedy group.

Seen enjoying a great night of music: Kathy and Jim Longacre, Fran Lynch, Susan Pollins, Kip and Darlene Monroe, Rick and Sue Harbaugh, Susan Susang, Mary Uhall, Mary Lou Talamo, Bill Holtzer, Vanessa Washington, Rick Stewart, Sherry Anderson, Rick Heil, Judy Knapp, Donna Bailey, Deb Thackrah, Lisa Cannon, Mike and Marianne Evans and Alexandra Fields’ uncle and aunt, Jim and Margie Davis.
