Tracy Quackenbush Martin for Commonwealth’s Attorney will present singer/songwriter Dane Ferguson in concert at Constitution Square in South Boston from 5 to 7 p.m. Sunday.
“I am excited to come home and play at Constitution Square. I think a lot of Tracy, and I was happy to come and support her,” said Ferguson, a Halifax County native and an up-and-coming music star.
He will be performing original compositions and popular songs, for the whole family to enjoy.
Ferguson’s love of music began at an early age. At 4 years old, his father (drummer Spencer Ferguson) found him sitting at the family piano picking out the melody of the “Star Spangled Banner.”
Realizing their son’s potential, Ferguson’s parents quickly signed him up for piano lessons, and they have influenced and supported his love for music ever since.
Today, he approaches music through different genres and influences—from acoustic folk to hip-hop — which he brings together through original songwriting.
He has released two EPs entitled “You Are Here” and “Where We Were.” “Where We Were” is available at http://daneferguson.bandcamp.com/.
Ferguson currently resides in Richmond, where he plays weekly shows at various bars and venues, while tapping into a number of other avenues within the music industry.
Tickets are $15 (children 5 and under for free) and are available at the gate or in advance in South Boston at Bo’s Hydraulics and Beetoobi IT Solutions, and in the Town of Halifax at Triangle Florist, the Law Office of Tracy L. Quackenbush, PLC, and from 3 to 6 p.m. at Tracy Quackenbush Martin for Commonwealth’s Attorney Campaign Headquarters at 50 Mountain Road.
Ollie’s Southern Café and A&E Caterers will be on site providing food to purchase and enjoy. No alcohol will be permitted. Concert organizers encourage attendees to bring lawn chairs and blankets to enjoy the show.
Tracy Quackenbush Martin for Commonwealth’s Attorney invites the public to come out to Constitution Square this Sunday, Sept. 29, from 5 p.m.-7 p.m. and enjoy an evening of great music, food and fun for the family.
