The Cowee School Arts & Heritage Center in Macon County is celebrating summer with a variety of different musical programs including a full Summer Concert Series, SEBA Jam Sessions, and other concerts sponsored separately throughout the year.
The Summer Concert Series continues this weekend and will feature the Slocan Ramblers. The Slocan Ramblers (2019 Juno Award Nominees) are Canada’s bluegrass band to watch. Rooted in tradition, fearlessly creative and possessing a bold, dynamic sound, The Slocans have become a leading light of today’s acoustic music scene. With a reputation for energetic live shows, impeccable musicianship and an uncanny ability to convert anyone within earshot into a lifelong fan, The Slocans have been winning over audiences from Merlefest to RockyGrass and everywhere in between.
On their much-anticipated new album Queen City Jubilee (2019 Juno Award Nominee for Traditional Roots Album of the Year), The Slocans showcase their unique blend of bluegrass, old-time and folk with deep song-writing, lightning-fast instrumentals and sawdust-thick vocals. With their trademark raucous energy, this new album presents The Slocan Ramblers at the top of their game – writing and playing tunes to keep you up all night. This is roots music without pretension, music intended to make you feel something – say hello to your new favorite band.
Flying Cloud food truck will also be open on June 18th. The concert will outdoors so bring a chair or blanket.
Tickets: $15/adults, $7.50 kids 16 & under, You can buy tickets online at the Cowee Heritage Center website, at the Franklin, NC Chamber of Commerce or at the show.
