All Shook Up

All Shook Up is a musical comedy built around a number of songs made famous by Elvis Presley. It’s NOT a biographical revue.

Among the 24 songs featured in the score are classics like “Heartbreak Hotel,” “Love Me Tender,” “Don’t Be Cruel,” “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” and of course the title tune.

Shows Wednesday through Sunday. Times vary by day, check the Flat Rock Playhouse website!

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!”

South Pacific

South Pacific

The Flat Rock Playhouse presents Rodger’s and Hammerstein’s classic musical South Pacific!

Set against the dramatic background of an idyllic South Pacific island during WWII, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s South Pacific intertwines the themes of romance, duty, and prejudice to create a story that is all at once hilarious, heartbreaking, and thought-provoking. Based on the anecdotes of a real-life U.S. Navy commander who was stationed on an island, the musical follows two intercultural love stories: Nellie, a spunky nurse from Arkansas, falls in love with Emile, a French plantation owner on the island who has two children from his late Polynesian wife; at the same time, U.S. Lieutenant Cable falls for a beautiful island native named Liat. Both Americans find themselves struggling to reconcile their own cultural prejudices with their amorous feelings, all the while under the dark cloud of a war that is coming ever closer to their island paradise.

Shows Wednesday through Sunday. Times vary by day, check the Flat Rock Playhouse website!

Freddy Cole at the Tryon Fine Arts Center

“One of American popular music’s great performers, Cole is a beloved musician’s musician and a living link to the Great American Songbook.” Chuck Berg, The Topeka Capital-Journal

Lionel Frederick Cole was born the youngest of Edward and Paulina Nancy Cole’s five children. His three elder brothers, Eddie, Ike and Nat (twelve years Freddy’s senior) were all musicians taught by their mother. Though Freddy was born in Chicago, he is now a 35-year native son and international celebrity of Atlanta.

“I started playing piano at five or six,” Freddy recalls. “Music was all around me.” In the Chicago home of his youth, visitors included Duke Ellington, Count Basie, and Lionel Hampton. He also credits Billy Eckstine as a major influence. “He was a fantastic entertainer,” Freddy recalls. “I learned so much from just watching and being around him.”

Freddy moved to New York in 1951, where he studied at the Juilliard School of Music and found himself profoundly influenced by John Lewis, Oscar Peterson and Teddy Wilson. It was back in New York that Freddy successfully laid the groundwork for a career that continues to flourish to this day.

While there are certain unmistakable similarities in timbre to his brother Nat, his voice is raspier, smokier, jazzier even. In truth, his phrasing is far closer to that of Frank Sinatra or Billie Holiday than that of his brother, and his timing swings even more. His vocals – suave, elegant, formidable, sometimes spoken and articulate – make him the most respected lyrical storyteller in jazz. Cole’s career continues to ascend as he has moved into the front ranks of America’s homegrown art form with a style and musical sophistication all his own.

May 5: “Band And Brass”

Gina Chavez at the Tryon Fine Arts Center

Gina Chavez at the Tryon Fine Arts Center

“Gina Chavez’s voice stops you in your tracks the first time you hear it…Whether she sings in English or Spanish, Chavez captures a healthy dose of American soul, country, and rock music, and she could hold her own with any Mexican ranchera singer, past or present.” Felix Contreras, NPR

Chavez, whose parents are of Mexican and Swiss-German descent, was raised on Lyle Lovett, Little Richard and Michael Jackson. She cut her songwriting teeth at 18, spurred by Griffin’s piercing melodies and Ani DiFranco’s lyrical prowess. Inspired after hearing the country-blues wail of Toni Price at Austin’s famed Continental Club, Chavez snagged her dad’s vintage Martin and began lighting up stages at the University of Texas at Austin.

When Gina Chavez chose up.rooted as the title of her new album, she found the one word that could reflect not only major turning points in her own journey, but the experiences of people who live in her songs. Chavez uses this second album to express the dichotomies of her life as an ethnically mixed American woman trying to define, and embrace, who she is and where she belongs — which she does beautifully in 11 exceptional Latin folk-pop tunes.

Tryon Concert Association is excited to introduce TGIF Concerts as part of the 63rd Anniversary. These two events – separate from the subscription series – are informal Friday evening concerts designed to begin the weekend with a lighthearted kick start.

Since 2011, Kymric Mahnke has again been an active piano collaborator with vocalists and chamber music ensembles in the area, following a twenty-seven year absence from the concert stage to practice law as a partner at Nelson Mullins Riley and Scarborough in Greenville, SC. Regularly appearing on Tryon’s Bach’s Lunch Lenten and Advent Recital Series, Tryon Estate’s Laurel Lake Music Society, and with concert appearances at Converse College’s Petrie School of Music and The South Carolina School of the Arts, Mr.Mahnke again seeks to bring the best of classical music to a wide audience.

Mr. Mahnke received a Morehead Scholarship for study at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he won the Percy Craven Weeks award as the outstanding graduating senior pianist, and received B.M and M.M degrees in piano performance. Following his playing of the Liszt E-Flat Piano Concerto with the Virginia Beach Pops Orchestra at his last public appearance before his first retirement from music at the age of 30, the Virginia Pilot wrote that he “laid claim to the piece as though it were his birthright.”

Eileen Ivers – Universal Roots

Eileen Ivers – Universal Roots

Shredding her electric fiddle through looping, fuzz and wah effects — sawing her bow across the strings like an orchestral psychedelic rock star — Eileen Ivers is, essentially, “the Jimi Hendrix of the violin,” writes The New York Times. Having played with more than 50 symphony orchestras, this nine-time All Ireland Fiddle Champion is now touring with her dynamic new band, Universal Roots. A Grammy Award-winner and Emmy-nominated performer, Ivers pushes the boundaries of the fiddling tradition, taking a fiercely fresh approach to the folk music staple instrument. Her most recent work showcases the intersection of Celtic tradition and North American roots music, taking audiences on a journey through time, from folk traditions to modern influence.

With an energetic Top 40 score amplified with dynamic new songs, Footloose celebrates the wisdom of opening minds and listening to the voices of young people. A musical version of the 1984 film.

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.
