158 On Main Presents: Walter Finley & April Dawn
August 19, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
The performances of Walter Finley and April Dawn have become a bit of a staple on Lake Norman. Even during the extreme challenges that COVID-19 has presented to the entertainment industry, the musicians have been relentless in their effort to bring a positive message to Mooresville and the surrounding Lake Norman communities. The talented duo was invited to perform at the North Carolina Country Music Awards in January, where Walter garnered second place for the February Countdown Songwriting Contest. He even wrote a song for these challenging times called “Baby We Can Do This.” Walter’s original music exemplifies the Americana genre with a touch of country. April Dawn provides melodic harmonies. The end result is a lot of complexity in memorable tunes with powerful lyrics and Walter’s unique guitar style. Walter recently won the Queen City Award for Male Country Artist 2020 and has been nominated for 3 ISSAs (international singer songwriter award) and 2 Josie Awards in 2020. Walter and April started the BYOBoat shows on Lake Norman during the pandemic which catered to 50-80 boats every Wednesday.
