TroyFest Welcomes Bill Dees          

 

TROY, Ala—    TroyFest welcomes legendary singer and songwriter, Bill Dees, to its JazzFest lineup, sponsored by the Troy Arts Council on Saturday, April 24th.  Dees co-wrote more than 65 songs with Roy Orbison, including the Billboard number one song, "Pretty Woman".

Dees will be performing and sharing stories with good friend, Jack Pribek.  The concert is free to the public and will begin at 6.30 PM.  "Both of these men have fascinating stories to tell, said Jon Jinright TAC member and Film Festival President.  "Their stories make the music even more memorable."

TroyFest, presented by the City of Troy, Pike County Chamber of Commerce and Troy Arts Council, is a fine arts and craft festival held in honor of Jean Thompson Lake, folk artist and Troy native.  In 1982, a Jean Lake Memorial Art Show was held, which eventually evolved into TroyFest.  There will be a variety of art, food and entertainment for people of all ages.  This year's festival will be held April 24th and 25th.
