Top Tix: Upcoming music events in the NRV (Oct. 26-Nov. 3)
Tad Dickens, The Roanoke Times’ music reporter, shares his top picks for weekend music events.

Dailey, Vincent and Fortune
Bluegrass vocal stars Dailey & Vincent love the Statler Brothers so much that they cut an album in tribute. Jimmy Fortune, who sang for more than 20 years with the Statlers and wrote one of the act’s most enduring hits, “Elizabeth,” joins D&V for five shows, and this is one of them. Should be a great night of country, bluegrass and gospel harmonies at a place that consistently brings in good shows.
Details: 7:30 p.m. Edwards Hall, New River Community College, Dublin. $25 advance; $30 door. 674-3625, nr.edu/fiddle, daileyandvincent.bombplates.com, jimmyfortune.com
