An up-and-coming new female country group, Farewell Angelina, will be in concert in Lynnville this Friday, Aug. 21, at 7:30 p.m. at Old Settlers Park.
Some area residents may remember one of the group members, Nicole Witt, who put on a concert at Sully First Reformed Church and at the Marlin and Laureen Van Wyk home in recent years. Witt has joined with Elizabeth Elkins, Andrea Young, and Lisa Torres to form Farewell Angelina.
Sully Plumbing and Heating, Inc. is sponsoring the group’s appearance in Lynnville. Tickets ($10 each) are for sale at Sully Plumbing and will be available at the door Friday night. Community members attending the fall scrimmages for Lynnville-Sully athletics that night are encouraged to come to the concert following the games.

Farewell Angelina is an all-female country quartet featuring four women who are each award-winning songwriters, dynamic singers, and multi-instrumentalists. The Nashville-based group has sold out rooms across the Southeast and Midwest and has opened shows for Loretta Lynn. Their sound may remind some of the Dixie Chicks and Little Big Town, with a hefty dose of The Eagles’ vocal chemistry. Their 2015 tour schedule will take them across the United States.
Witt is one of Nashville's most loved female songwriters and singers. Her songs have been recorded by Lee Brice, George Strait, Kenny Rogers, Rodney Adkins, Gwen Sebastian, and many others. She is a Dove Award-nominated multi-instrumentalist, equally at home on piano, fiddle, guitar, or mandolin. She won the 2011 International Bluegrass Music Association Song of the Year.
