BMC Announces Gillian Welch To Play As Part Of 80th Celebration-Brevard NC


Gillian Welch

The celebration of Brevard Music Center's 80th Anniversary has added a BMC Presents concert starring Gillian Welch at 8 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 19, at Whittington-Pfohl Auditorium.

Tickets for the concert, produced in collaboration with Mountain Song Productions, go on sale Friday, June 10, and range in price from $20 - $40.

Welch, along with partner and collaborator Dave Rawlings, blends bluegrass, Americana and Appalachian roots music.

A two-time Grammy nominee, Welch also co-produced and performed two songs on the Grammy Award-winning Best Album of the Year, "O Brother Where Art Thou?" The duo's latest release is entitled "The Harrow and the Harvest."

"Our regular festival season finale will take place on Aug. 7 with a performance of Beethoven's epic 9th Symphony," said Mark Weinstein, president and CEO of Brevard Music Center. "But the opportunity to host such a wonderful musical luminary as Gillian Welch gave us a great reason to extend our anniversary season and end it on yet another high note."

"We've been cultivating the opportunity to bring Gillian Welch here for some time and to be able to collaborate with BMC is a perfect fit," said Mountain Song Productions' John Felty. "A world class venue, beautiful scenery with an indoor/outdoor setting should create the perfect experience for her show. We are excited to collaborate with BMC on this show, as well as the June 28 concert with Béla Fleck."

Upcoming 2016 BMC Presents performances include the 80th Anniversary Spectacular featuring Amy Grant (June 25), Béla Fleck in Concert (June 28), A Gospel Celebration featuring The Rance Allen Group and N.C. A&T Gospel Choir (July 3), and Harpeth Rising (July 21).
