CAPE GAZETYE, Friday, June 19 . June 25, 1998 - 85 New Country Music Fest part of annual Lewes event on July 9 Award winning country music group Ricochet, known for hits "Daddy's Money," "In the Blink of an Eye," and "Love is Stronger Than Pride," and The Lynns will headline a special country music fest that is being held as part of the University of Delaware's annual Summer Arts Festival. The con- cert will start at 6 p m. on Thurs- day, July 9, at the University of Delaware's College of Marine Studies in Lewes. Joining Ricochet and The Lynns will be country artists Matt King and The Thompson Brothers Band. Ricochet is the winner of top new vocal group of the year awards from both the Academy of Country Music and "Country Weekly" magazine. The band's self-titled first album made it the top-selling group in country music for 19 straight weeks and went gold. The Lynns, twin daughters of country legend Loretta Lynn, are proud of their famous lineage and of the talent that has brought them to the forefront of the country mu- sic industry. Peggy and Patsy Lynn spent two years in Nashville performing as "The Honk-A-Bil- lies," and kept mum about their famous mother. Without revealing their rela- tionship to Loretta, the two were signed by record label Warner/Reprise A&R. The Lynns' debut album, "The Lynns," was-produced by Don Cook, who has also produced country talents Brooks and Dunn and Maverick. Their most recent single, "Woman to Woman," was featured on the soundtrack of the Steven Seagal movie, "Fire Down Below." Although Matt King is a relative newcomer to the country music scene, he made an immediate splash when he hit Nashville. Per- forming to a small but impressive audience that included Atlantic Records president Rick Black- burn, King was signed by Atlantic shortly thereafter. King is the son of a North Carolina bluegrass-mu- sician father and a gospel-pianist mother. The Thompson Brothers Band, composed of lead guitarist Andy Thompson, drummer Matt Thompson and bassist Mike Whit- ty, got their start in Boston, per- forming as the "Crypt Kickers" as a novelty act with Boris Pickett of "Monster Mash" fame. They headed to Nashville with scholar- ships to Belmont University, and spent the weekends playing at Johnny's Bar, located south of Nashville. Four years after the group came to Nashville, they were signed by RCA/Nashville. They released their first album, "Cows on the Street," in 1996. Their newest al- bum, "Blame It on the Dog," has just been released. The concert will be presented by Froggy 99.9, Pepsi and Corn- cast. Tickets can be purchased from the University of Delaware's Georgetown office, located in the William A. Carter Partnership Center, or at the Dover office at 69 Transportation Circle.
