Due to the rise in COVID-19 cases throughout the U.S. due to the Delta variant, and in the interest of fans, constituents, volunteers and our surrounding communities, we have collectively made the difficult decision to postpone the Sue Cunningham Scholarship Benefit Concert featuring the Steep Canyon Rangers. We are currently working with the Steep Canyon Rangers to solidify the new date in the spring of 2022!

Performed by Verlon Thompson and Sue Cunningham in January 2011.
This song is featured on 'Ode to an Angel' Album One...
Here is a song from 'Ode To An Angel, Album Two...
Verlon Thompson and Sue Cunningham performing 'Hillbilly Grave' moments after finishing writing the song with Frank Serio.
This is the actual track which is on the Album and the stereo sound was created by combining the audio from Sue's iPhone recording and the sound from Frank's video camera. And it came out beautifully!
The mission of Little Hickory Productions Inc. is to carry on the legacy of Sue Cunningham, renowned violinist and Ph.D. Mechanical Engineer, and to continue to support those causes that were dear to her heart while sharing the music that she loved.

Co-founded by Sue Cunningham in 2001, Hickory Fest, a music festival held held annually on the 3rd weekend of August, raises money for various causes including the Tioga County Relay for Life as well as multiple music scholarships.
Started with Sue Cunningham in 2010 in Tequesta Florida as a way to bring great music while supporting worthy local causes. Our Florida music series has grown into a way to continue bringing great music while supporting the causes that were dear to Sue's heart.
Since Sue's passing in 2015, multiple scholarships have been created in her name including scholarships at the Dreyfoos School of the Arts in West Palm Beach Florida, The Wellsboro Pennsylvania Middle and High Schools and at Mansfield University in Pennsylvania.
