Local Duo to Open Historical Society’s Concert
On Thursday, April 12th, the New Bern Historical Society’s concert will bring two great opportunities: to see legendary singer-songwriter, Livingston Taylor, and to enjoy New Bern’s own Lewis N Clark. Composed of local Von Lewis and his bride Abbey Clark, this dynamic duo will open the concert with their own take on timeless hits from past decades. Describes as a country/jazz fusion, they have been compared to Sonny and Cher and Dolly and Kenny. Married in 2016, the vivacious and romantic energy of Lewis n Clark’s chemistry and talent is undeniable.
Some of you may remember Von’s work growing up with more than 10 years at New Bern Civic Theatre. Abbey joined him there recently in Catch Me If You Can. This dynamic duo met in 2014 as Artists in Residence at The Greenbrier Resort and Casino in White Sulphur Springs, WV. Not ignoring the fact that their names had a certain historical ring, the two talents joined forces and began performing as Lewis n Clark, an exploration through vintage music. Their travels have taken them around the U.S. and some parts of the World to perform before shows such as Lionel Richie, Jimmy Buffett, & Maroon Five and even showcasing their duo act on Carnival Cruise Lines in Australia! Lewis n Clark have made New Bern, NC their new home-base and the Historical Society is happy to have them open for Livingston Taylor.
Tickets are available to the Livingston Taylor concert with Lewis N Clark at the New Bern Historical Society at 511 Broad St. or by phone at 252-638-8558 or on line at www.NewBernHistorical.org/tickets. General admission seats are $38, preferred seats, $58, and some VIP/sponsor seats which include a pre-show reception with the performers at the Isaac Taylor House are still available.
