Shannon Whitworth
Brevard, N.C.-based folk songwriter and banjo player Shannon Whitworth is heading back to Charleston for an elegant concert at the historic Dock Street Theatre (135 Church St.).

Whitworth is a founding member of the acoustic quartet the Biscuit Burners. She formed a new group in 2006. Their 2007 debut No Expectations and their follow-up album Water Bound established her as one of the stars of the Carolina folk/bluegrass scene.

Look for Whitworth and her current band — bassist Seth Kaufman, pedal steel player Matthew Smith, and guitarist Barrett Smith — at the theater on Fri. June 15 at 8 p.m. Advance tickets are available for $15. Check out shannonwhitworth.net and charlestonstage.com for more.
