Collins Brothers at Old Courthouse
Native Union Countians and brothers, F.C. and Randall Collins, will perform in concert at the Old Courthouse on the Square in Blairsville at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, June 17.
The Collins brothers are two of the best known musicians in this area. F.C. plays guitar and sings. He has been a member of the staff band at the Georgia Mountain Fair for over thirty years.
Randall has played fiddle with some of the best bluegrass bands in the country, including Bill Monroe.
The other members of the Collins Brothers’ band are Kerry Warbington, banjo; and Ken Young, also a member of the Hall of Honor in the Atlanta Music Hakk of Fame, on bass.
The Collins brothers have a CD that was recorded live at The Old Courthouse on the Square among their many recordings.
A concert by F.C. and Randall is always enjoyable and varied with a mix between vocals and instrumental tunes. Randall usually showcases some of his fiddle students at their concerts which is always a treat.
The Summer Concerts are presented by the Union County Historical Society as a public service and to keep alive the tradition of music in The Old Courthouse. There is no admission charge. The musicians donate their time and talents. Voluntary contributions to the restoration fund are always welcomed and appreciated.
