Published 12:00pm Wednesday, February 6, 2013

Alexander City Arts, Inc. invites the community to spend Valentine’s Day with the Dill Pickers.

“The Dill Pickers are wonderful,” said Beverly Thomas, coordinator for the program. “We’re really excited to have them come. It’s an opportunity for folks to come out and have a really entertaining night.”

The performance will be held at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 14 at the Benjamin Russell High School Auditorium.

Thomas said the six-member ensemble will entertain with a variety of music from blue grass to Gospel.

“They play so many different instruments,” Thomas said. “They are folksy – warm and fuzzy.”

Thomas said she first saw the Dill Pickers at the story-telling festival in Selma and was impressed with their authentic sound.

“They just have common love of music,” Thomas said. “It was wonderful interacting with them. They are such a find. We’re anxious to share them with the community.”

She said she believes the Dill Pickers will really enhance the season presented by the Alexander City Arts Council.

“We want quality, but we also want variety,” Thomas said. “We like to bring a variety of arts to the community.”

Tickets are available at the door and are $15 for adults. Students will be admitted for $5 with a student ID, and those 12 and under will be admitted free.
