Liberty, NC - Dewey and Leslie Brown, owners of The Liberty Showcase Theater, will join the Saturday morning Facebook Live Chat-N-Chill Series event.

Leslie is an authentic coal miner’s daughter who was raised by her grandparents in the Appalachian Mountains of Vansant, VA. Her upbringing in the mountains has always played a significant role in her songwriting, dancing and singing.
Together, their music is powerful and genuine to the bluegrass tradition.

Amber Scarlett, interim CEO of Heart of North Carolina Visitors Bureau, said the series was started to keep the destination’s beloved travel destinations top of mind for both locals and travelers.
Thousands have been reached through the series with people joining from other states and overseas, too.
