Michael Reno Harrell To Perform


Last updated 4/3/2019 at 2:59pm

Michael Reno Harrell, an award winning songwriter, storyteller and entertainer, will perform Saturday, April 6, at 8 p.m. at 185 King Street in Brevard.

Harrell’s recordings top the Americana Music Association charts year after year. His original songs and stories have been described as “Appalachian grit and wit,” but, as his writing shows, Harrell’s awareness is much broader than the bounds of his boyhood home or even the southern experience.

Having toured throughout the British Isles and much of Europe, as well as most of the U.S., the songs he writes and the stories he creates reflect an insight into people’s experiences that catch the ear like an old friend’s voice. One could compare Harrell’s performances to his granddaddy’s pocket knife: well worn and familiar feeling, but razor sharp and with a point. His brand of entertainment appeals to a very diverse audience. A typical day for Harrell might include a program for fourth graders in the afternoon and a concert for a mixed audience that evening.

Harrell has had the honor of being a featured storyteller at the National Storytelling Festival and to be teller-in-residence at the International Storytelling Center, as well as performing at major music events like MerleFest and the Walnut Valley Festival.

Tickets are $10 for members and $15 for non-members. For tickets or more information, visit
