Little Roy & Lizzy to return to Troy

Published 3:15 pm Tuesday, February 6, 2024

Little Roy Lewis has been providing musical entertainment and laughter annually in Montgomery County for more than six decades.

And he will do it again on Feb. 17 when the Little Roy & Lizzy Show performs at the James Garner Center in Troy.

“I started coming with my family in 1963,” recalled the banjo/guitar/auto-harp playing pint-sized singer and comedian.

Promoter Jeff Branch of Oakboro is happy to see the Lincolnton, Georgia group return.

“I’m looking forward to having Little Roy & Lizzy back in Troy. I promise you are in for an entertaining show when Little Roy hits the stage.”

Even at age 82, Little Roy hasn’t slowed down. He still hops around the stage, playing multiple instruments, telling jokes, donning costumes and being the ultimate entertainer.

Lizzy Long joins in playing a variety of instruments, singing original tunes and keeping tabs on Little Roy. They are backed by a full band of musicians assembled from across the United States: two brothers from California play guitar and mandolin, a fiddler from Tennessee and a bassist from Minnesota.

Sponsored by the Troy Lions Club, concessions by its members will be available. The show starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $20 for reserved seating. $15 for general admission.

For tickets or more information, contact Jeff Branch at 704-985-6987 or jbranch205@gmail.com.

The James Garner Center is at 210 Burnette St. in Troy.
