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.

Rhythm & Brews Concert presents The Rad Trads and Honey Island Swamp Band

Rhythm & Brews Concert presents The Rad Trads and Honey Island Swamp Band

Rhythm & Brews Concert Series, in Downtown Hendersonville NC, wraps up the 2019 season with The Rad Trads performing at 5:30 PM and Honey Island Swamp Band at 7:30 PM.
Hailing from Brooklyn NY, The Rad Trads distinguish themselves in ways few bands can. Already drawing lines around the block at home, the globe-trotting group’s singular take on rock n’ roll mixes punk rock energy, horn drenched soul, and jazz precision, all with a lighthearted but sincere delivery. Challenging but humorous, at times, the band bring to mind Springsteen and his “Big Man” Clarence Clemons, Dylan’s Blood On The Tracks-era vocal style, and Wilco’s epic guitar breakdowns.

The New Orleans based Honey Island Swamp Band is described as Bayou Americana, that critics have compared to legendary Blues-Roots-Rock Artists such as The Allman Brothers, Little Feat and The Band. The band encompasses the sounds of blues, roots, country, and soul along with honest and heartfelt lyrics from life experiences such as Hurricane Katrina in their hometown. “We’re diverse and complex people,” explains Chris Mule, the band’s guitarist, “and our audiences are as well. So we try to let our music reflect that.”

Rhythm & Brews is a free outdoor concert series offering local foods, wines, craft beers and ciders. Hands On! Children’s Museum booth provides fun for the whole family.

The concert is located on South Main Street between Allen and Caswell Streets in downtown Hendersonville NC. Tickets and wristbands, for the purchase of beer, wine and hard cider, will be located at the Downtown Hendersonville tent near the Visitor’s Center.

Rhythm & Brews is held on the 3rd Thursday of the month, May-September.

2nd Sundays at The Center, Sherry Lovett, Story Teller  and Lillian Chase, Fiddler

2nd Sundays at The Center, Sherry Lovett, Story Teller and Lillian Chase, Fiddler

In August we are featuring story teller Sherry Lovett and 13 year old fiddler, Lillian Chase,

CAI presents Sherry Lovett, storyteller, and renown 13 year-old musician Lillian Chase in an afternoon of traditional Appalachian words and blue grass music.

Sherry Lovett has been a middle school teacher, elementary media specialist, homeschooler, educational cooperative leader, teaching artist for Penland School of Crafts, workshop facilitator, and, through it all, a storyteller. Through haunting ballads, historic narratives, and wise and wonderful folktales, Sherry swirls together a magical stew to delight audiences from school assemblies to a variety of adult performances. She connects with her audiences through universal themes and delivers stories with beautiful language and graceful movements. Her mission is to inspire, encourage, entertain, and connect with people through the art of storytelling.

Sixth generation Western North Carolina native, Lillian Chase, may be young, but she’s no stranger to old-time and bluegrass music. She began playing music at 6 years of age and now the 13-year old fiddler from Weaverville, NC has released her debut album. The CD highlights collaborations of the young fiddler with nationally and regionally known musicians she considers important mentors in her traditional music education. She has shared the stage with traditional music greats like Bobby Hicks, April Verch, Bruce Molsky, Riley Baugus, Pete Sutherland, and John Doyle, and many of these people appear on the album.

The recording was made possible for Lillian through an award from the Acadia School of Traditional Music & Arts. The music school recognized her work and interest in traditional music through their 2017 Young Artist of the Year award. The award’s stated focus is to fund a young artist’s first professional recording, and to help launch the musical careers of the best and brightest young musicians of the next generation.

Lillian received several awards in 2017, including the prestigious Wayne Henderson scholarship. Celebrated flat pick guitarist Wayne Henderson sets aside proceeds from his annual festival to give to up-and-coming acoustic artists, specifically for their study of traditional Appalachian music. The Houston Caldwell Scholarship, given by HoustonFest in Galax, VA, also selected Chase as a winner this year for traditional music study.

2nd Sundays @ The Center is a series of unique events tailored to the reflective spirit of Sundays. Relax in the warm and intimate setting of The Center and let yourself unwind as you listen to live music. Then, allow our professional storytellers to take you on a journey through time, evoking history, memory, and connection. Each month we bring you a unique program with story and music themed for an immersive experience.

Rocky Mountain High: Ted Virgil is John Denver

Rocky Mountain High: Ted Virgil is John Denver

Ted Vigil is the Ultimate John Denver

If John Denver had a son….You have to admit it: The resemblance to music icon John Denver – who died in 1997 when his experimental aircraft crashed into the Pacific Ocean – is uncanny. Listen to Ted Vigil and you’ll be Rocky Mountain High all over again.

Ted, who has been performing since he was 10, as well as writing, recording and performing his original compositions, won a national Talent Quest title as John Denver in 2006. After winning a celebrity look-alike contest, he began planning his John Denver tribute show. Since then Ted has performed as John Denver nationwide, offering some of Denver’s most familiar tunes, including “Thank God I’m A Country Boy,” “Calypso,” “Annie’s Song,” “Rocky Mountain High” and “Sunshine on My Shoulders.” He has wowed crowds from coast to coast and has played twice for John Denver’s own Windstar Foundation in Aspen Colorado.

The most heard comments after one of Ted’s shows are echoed in this review from a long time John Denver fan: “Ted Vigil’s voice, mannerisms and humor were so much like John’s that I had to keep reminding myself it was a ‘tribute show’….that wasn’t really Johnny up on that stage – Ted Vigil is THAT GOOD!!! He brings John back to the stage, if only for a little while…and the experience he creates is magical!”

Rocky Mountain High: Ted Virgil is John Denver

Rocky Mountain High: Ted Virgil is John Denver

Ted Vigil is the Ultimate John Denver

If John Denver had a son….You have to admit it: The resemblance to music icon John Denver – who died in 1997 when his experimental aircraft crashed into the Pacific Ocean – is uncanny. Listen to Ted Vigil and you’ll be Rocky Mountain High all over again.

Ted, who has been performing since he was 10, as well as writing, recording and performing his original compositions, won a national Talent Quest title as John Denver in 2006. After winning a celebrity look-alike contest, he began planning his John Denver tribute show. Since then Ted has performed as John Denver nationwide, offering some of Denver’s most familiar tunes, including “Thank God I’m A Country Boy,” “Calypso,” “Annie’s Song,” “Rocky Mountain High” and “Sunshine on My Shoulders.” He has wowed crowds from coast to coast and has played twice for John Denver’s own Windstar Foundation in Aspen Colorado.

The most heard comments after one of Ted’s shows are echoed in this review from a long time John Denver fan: “Ted Vigil’s voice, mannerisms and humor were so much like John’s that I had to keep reminding myself it was a ‘tribute show’….that wasn’t really Johnny up on that stage – Ted Vigil is THAT GOOD!!! He brings John back to the stage, if only for a little while…and the experience he creates is magical!”

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.”

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.
