Jerry Wilson Family in Concert

Lead by patriarch, Jerry Wilson, this band specializes in harmony and acoustic guitar on traditional and sacred songs of Appalachia and old-time country music. Jerry sang gospel music with his brother Ray throughout the southeast for around 40 years, winning the NC Heritage Award in 1998 and recording several albums. In that band, Jerry sang tenor, penned gospel songs, and played rhythm guitar—with his younger brother singing lead. These days, Jerry’s son, Paul, provides the lead vocal. The group is further comprised of Jerry’s daughter, Tipper Pressley, on bass guitar, grandson, Ben Wilson, on guitar, and Jerry’s granddaughters, Katie and Corrie Pressley, on vocals. The group has experienced a strong resurgence over the past two years due in large part to Tipper’s online blog about all things Appalachian, www.blindpigandtheacorn.com. The site features a spot called “pickin’ in the kitchen.” Tipper uploads videos of the band’s music to her blog, YouTube, Facebook, and more, entertaining fans around the world everyday.


The summer concerts at The Old Courthouse on the Square 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 donations to the maintenance fund are always welcomed and appreciated.
