They're making music this weekend at Augusta nightspots

There's a diverse entertainment lineup this weekend at Augusta area nightclubs.


For the country set, Eric Lee Beddingfield performs Friday night and fiddling singer Natalie Stovall on Saturday at the Country Club, 2834 Washington Road.

Mr. Beddingfield and his country rock band have a large following from their performances across the nation, ranging from small-town roadhouses to the International Dairy Convention in Madison, Wis.

He grew up in Dearing, Ga., and earned a degree in business from Georgia Southern University, where he established his reputation as an energetic stage performer with his County Line band.

Ms. Stovall, a native of Columbia, Tenn., began playing the fiddle at age 4, and by 10 was performing regularly in the Kid’s Club Show at the Opryland theme park in Nashville, Tenn.

She graduated in 2004 from the Berklee College of Music in Boston, where she had formed a band called Green Line South.

She is promoting Late Night Conversations, her second independent CD.
