Darrell Scott

Darrell Scott

In 2017 and 2018 Darrell opened for and performed with the Zac Brown Band, but these days find him roaming his Tennessee wilderness acreage, hiking along the small river, and playing music. He often leads songwriting workshops to help people tell their own truths with their stories, and is as busy as always writing, producing, performing, and just plain fully immersing himself at the hips in life. The wordsmithing and craftsmanship of the songs that become timeless─although a lost cause for many who try to write them─ is far from a dying art, thanks to Darrell’s work. He is more so existing creatively at levels we just don’t fathom anymore. He mines and cultivates the everyday moment, taking the rote, menial, mundane, and allowing it to be surreal, ever poignant, and candidly honest, lilting, blooming, and resonating. The words he fosters allow us to make sense of the world, what is at stake here, and our place in it. And ultimately, Darrell knows the sole truth of life is that love is all that matters, that we don’t always get it right, but that’s the instinctive and requisite circuitous allure of things, why we forever chase it, and why it is held sacred.

Christmas Jam Session Party

Christmas Jam Session Party

It’s that time of year folks!! We’re brewing a batch of our seasonal Christmas Jam Session Ale and we’re throwing a party to celebrate!! Live music by The Dip and Erin and the Wildfire!! Habitat for Humanity will be joining us and to talk about all the great things they do and take donations!!

The Dip:

Hailing from Seattle, The Dip is an electrifying seven-piece ensemble that melds vintage rhythm and blues and modern pop with 60s soul, tapped by KEXP as “one of the most exciting and joyous acts to emerge in recent years”. The group quickly gained notoriety throughout the Pacific Northwest for their eminently danceable live shows that feature vocals from frontman Tom Eddy (Beat Connection), an effortlessly deep pocket, and the melodies of the “The Honeynut Horns”. Hard-hitting but sensitive, The Dip harkens back to the deep soul roots of decades past while sounding undeniably relevant. The band’s 2015 self-titled debut, recorded to tape at Avast! Studios, propelled them to notable appearances at Sasquatch! Music Festival, High Sierra Music Fest, Summer Meltdown, and Capitol Hill Block Party and built anticipation for their 2016 release, Won’t Be Coming Back (EP). Now, the band prepares to arrive on the national stage with their second LP, The Dip Delivers. There’s a certain alchemy to The Dip that unites music fans of all ages and backgrounds and leaves everyone smiling ear to ear.

Erin and the Wildfire:

Powerful vocals. Infectious hooks. Sensual harmonies. Snacks.
Erin & the Wildfire combine elements of funk, soul, and R&B into a unique experience for fans. Featuring the core four: Matt Wood (bass), Ryan Lipps (guitar), Nick Quillen (drums) and Erin Lunsford (vocals) – who’ve been together since college, evolving their sound for six years – and a rotating menagerie of talented musicians out of Virginia.
The lyrical content comes from Lunsford’s life, loves, and the passions of her and the rest of the Wildfire – including those of female solidarity, body positivity, and pizza. The demanding presence of Lunsford’s voice, combined with the talent and charm of Quillen, Lipps, and Wood, makes for a high energy, inspiring performance that stays with you until the next time.
“Each show feels like it’s the next and last chance to explain ourselves –another chance to connect with the audience to speak our truth. We hope that people seeing us for the first time (and repeat viewers!) feel appreciated and comfortable and we hope they feel inspired by the tunes.” Lunsford, “The Young Folks”

Flat Rock Playhouse presents “All Shook Up”

Travel back in time to 1955 to a small, dreary cookie-cutter town where everything is about to change. A young mechanic, Natalie, dreams for adventure and love. Suddenly, a mysterious, leather-jacketed, guitar-playing, hip-swinging stranger shakes up the people of this small town as they discover romance, rock & roll, and riotous fun! This musical fantasy is built around songs made famous by Elvis Presley including hits like “Heartbreak Hotel,” “Love Me Tender,” “Don’t Be Cruel,” and, “Can’t Help Falling in Love”. Backed by a rousing Elvis score, this crazy and uplifting musical comedy will have audiences jumpin’ out of their blue suede shoes! “This is a great big Broadway show that never loses its mind or its light touch, with the accent on fun. It’s a roustabout’s joyride.” Journal News “A mixed-up merry-go-round of fun anchored by all those Presley tunes. Lightweight, to be sure, but it floats very nicely indeed.” Associated Press

Michael Sweet (the voice of Stryper) Solo & Acoustic

Michael Sweet (the voice of Stryper) Solo & Acoustic

Solo, acoustic performance by the lead singer of 80’s rock group Stryper.

When you’ve fronted one of the most trailblazing groups of the MTV generation, written a stable of Billboard-charting singles, filled arenas all the world over, said goodbye at the peak of it all, took stock in a thriving solo career, got the band back together for yet another record breaking run and even took a stint co‐leading one of the most legendary classic rock acts ever, then you undoubtedly have a story to share. But there’s still much more to Michael Sweet than selling almost 10 million albums in Stryper or singing and guitar slinging for Boston, including an equally riveting behind the scenes story packed to the brim with triumph, heartbreak and redemption that’s finally being told with unvarnished candor through not only the musical means of the latest solo CD “I’m Not Your Suicide”, but also the immensely anticipated autobiography “Honestly – My Life & Stryper Revealed”.

“The album is the story of the book and the book is the story of the album,” says the Grammy nominee and
Dove Award winner. “It made a powerful statement to have them both come out at the same time, especially
since both have played such an important role in the full circle journey I’ve taken as of late.”

On July 18th Rhythm & Brews Concert series presents two bands that will not only draw a crowd, but will pull the audience into an energetic and gritty musical experience. Kenny George Band, hailing from Aiken, SC, starts the evening off at 5:30 PM.

Kenny George and Scott Rankin anchor the band with guitars and vocals along with Randy Borawski on drums, C. Marshall Ely playing the pedal steel guitar and Brooks Andrews on bass. In 2016, the band was voted South Carolina Artists to Watch by the South Carolina Music Guide. Continuing the momentum at 7:30 PM will be the Colby Deitz Band.

Street Dances features Appalachian Fire / Bailey Mountain Cloggers

In 2019, the annual summer tradition of The Street Dances celebrates its 101st anniversary! The Street Dances began in 1918, when the citizens of Hendersonville took to the street to welcome home the soldiers from WWI. The Dances features mountain heritage bluegrass music, square dancing and clogging every Monday evening from July 8th through August 12th. On each of these 6 Monday nights, starting at 6:30pm, the caller, William Puckett, will teach audience members some basic square dancing moves so that everyone can join in on the fun led by the evening’s clogging group.

Week 1 features music by Appalachian Fire and dancing by the Bailey Mountain Cloggers.

In addition to you danging shoes, bring a chair to enjoy an evening filled with live music, dancing and entertainment from 7 – 9pm. The audience seating area opens after 5:30pm, and early admission is prohibited. Please leave your pets comfortably at home, as a Hendersonville City ordinance prohibits animals in event areas. Admission is free. No alcoholic beverages, backpacks or coolers allowed.

In case of inclement weather, the concert will be postponed until 8pm. If the weather does not improve by 8pm the performance will be cancelled.
