RED JUNE Appearing Sat Jul 12th 2014 at 8:00pm

We're excited to welcome back one of the top Americana/Bluegrass acts you'll hear anywhere.....our good friends


** SOLD OUT **

Like their namesake heirloom apple variety, Red June has strong roots in the Appalachian tradition while constantly forging new ground in American music.

A big crowd is expected and you're encouraged to purchase your tickets in advance.

“Beauty Will Come by Red June just may be the most stunningly gorgeous country album in years. Everything about it: from the exquisite three-part harmonies and acoustic loveliness of the mandolin, fiddle, guitar and upright bass…to the compositional prowess extolling home and hearth, family and true love ways. It’s natural, organic fresh air cool mountain stream music that strikes the right chord. It’s music meant to be played on the back porch at sundown while the coffee’s a ‘brewin’ and the soup is heatin’ up. This is the epitome of Americana…” —Mike Greenblatt (Rant 'n' Roll Aquarian Weekly)

With a dynamic yet refined sound featuring striking three-part harmonies, electrifying instrumental work, and honest, soulful songwriting, Asheville NC’s Red June has been capturing the hearts of audiences all across the country. A power trio consisting of Will Straughan on dobro and guitar, Natalya Weinstein on fiddle, and John Cloyd Miller on mandolin and guitar, the three seamlessly blend country, bluegrass, and American roots music with a dash of indie rock sensibility to create something entirely original and inspiring. 

Red June recently signed with Organic Records and released their highly anticipated third album, Ancient Dreams.

The band members have been longtime friends, first jamming together at an Asheville music party in 2005. In late 2008 they formed Red June and went on to release their first album, Remember Me Well, two years later. Their debut was very well received, and was voted the #1 regional release of 2010 by the discerning listeners of the southeast’s premier independent radio station, WNCW. Their follow up studio project, Beauty Will Come (2012) also garnered much attention.

“Red June plays a hybrid of folk, country and bluegrass in many of its attendant forms. They can kick it with a reel, squeeze a country turnip until it bleeds, and tell a folk tale as well as most anybody, but where they really shine is their songwriting. All three have an innate feel for the music of the past and, without rehashing the formulas of the past, write in their own styles, fitting each song to their strengths. The main strength? Vocals. Vocals are not all they do, but they do them so well that you get lost in them at times. Three voices, blended yet individual, singing for harmonic joy or sadness or singing for the joy of singing itself.”
