On Saturday, July 15 at 8 PM, SCENES will present a live concert at the hub of the bluegrass and “roots” music scene: Asheville, North Carolina. It will be a house concert, in the tradition of New Orleans “rent parties” and other home-grown venues that gave birth to the blues and nurtured folk music for decades.
The music director for this concert, Asheville Station, is Grammy-award winning record producer, Kenny Greenberg. Artists will include:
- Blue-Ridge-born songstress Alexa Rose. “Alexa Rose’s voice is a dream come true. It pivots from more traditional Americana sounds all the way to older tones, like folk tales from an ancient shore.” — Local Color, WNCW
- Ashley Heath, one of Asheville’s finest musicians with “velvety” vocals and a bluesy guitar style. “Her voice… surprises you, clear and strong, supported by solid guitar playing.” — The Citizen Times
- Folk-Americana singer/songwriter Hope Griffin. “In her capable hands, [the guitar] becomes an expression of longing, love, sorrow, joy and heartache, and when her duo partner, Jamie Leigh, adds in cello parts…the results are transcendent.” — The Daily Times
The live concert will be simultaneously broadcasted through SCENES Facebook page.
