Songs From The Road Band To Play At Library This Friday


August 26, 2019

The Friends of the Library has announced that the popular Outdoor Concert Series will be returning once again this fall. The concerts, which are traditionally held on Fridays in September, will begin this year on Friday, Aug. 30.

In deference to the Mountain Song Festival, there will not be a show Sept. 6.

The library’s amphitheater provides an idyllic setting to gather with friends and family for these free performances. The Rogow Room provides a nice indoor escape in the event of rain.

Songs from the Road Band will arrive to get the series underway as Labor Day weekend begins on Aug. 30. This high energy bluegrass/newgrass ensemble is a supergroup of North Carolina based artists each with accolades among the highest awarded in the field.

After a brief hiatus, the series will continue on Sept. 13 with Big Sound Harbor. This retro soul band coalesced around front woman Dulci Ellenberger while launching her debut solo album. Attendees can expect high caliber musicianship and a unique delivery of original music and thoughtfully arranged covers.

The air will be filled with songs and stories of the South when traditional folk duo Chatham Rabbits take the stage on Sept. 20. Sarah Osborne McCombie (vocals, banjo) and Austin McCombie (vocals, guitar, fiddle) are becoming known for the depth of their songwriting and the warmth of their performances.

The series will close in stellar style with the larger than life performance of The Mojo Brothers Blues Band. The band is a crowd favorite creation of Brevard’s own genre defying, national award winning tenor and performer Blake Ellege. For those fans of the blues bands of the 50s-80s, this final performance on Sept. 27 is one not miss.
