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.
