Music: GuitarTownCT presents The Little Roy & Lizzy Show Sat., July 27, at 7:30 PM

GuitarTownCT Concert Productions presents The Little Roy & Lizzy show live at Best Video Performance Space on Saturday, July 27. The show starts at 7:30 PM and tickets are $25 in advance through GuitarTownCT.com.

From Georgia, Little Roy & Lizzy are one of the most entertaining acts in bluegrass today. Front man Little Roy Lewis, 77, is a banjo master, comedian and story teller. Lizzy Long, virtuoso on fiddle, banjo and guitar, has a fantastic voice, and tries to keep Little Roy’s antics in check. Festival favorites, they play traditional bluegrass, country and gospel, with comedy thrown in everywhere.

While starting out on the piano, Elizabeth Long—or Lizzy as her friends and fans know her—soon took up the fiddle, guitar, autoharp, bass, banjo, and mandolin, and has become an accomplished musician, alternating between these instruments as part of her entertainment repertoire. Continuing her quest for success, Lizzy has paired up with Little Roy Lewis from the legendary Lewis Family. Lizzy finds that singing helps to express her thoughts and emotions—whether happy, sad, disappointed or angry. Her extraordinary voice shimmers with strains of America’s musical roots. Lizzy has been nominated for three Dove Awards and has won several fiddle and talent contests. Little Roy summed it up the best, “pull a plank off the wall and she’ll play it!”

Little Roy is awfully hard to overlook. He makes sure that no one in the audience gets bored at any time. Little Roy has won awards as Entertainer as well as for his banjo playing. Little Roy’s favorite banjo players are Don Reno and Earl Scruggs. USA Today called Little Roy “a banjo master, truly a picker’s picker.” Little Roy can also be found playing the guitar and autoharp. In fact, the song ‘Good Time Get-Together’ was written to highlight his instrumental skills. Little Roy is multi-talented – he sings, plays many instruments, tells stories, and acts.
