After living in Nashville for 23 years, Darrell Scott lives in the country now, but he’s still regarded as one of Music City’s premier session instrumentalists. Scott has had a storied career touring with Robert Plant’s Band of Joy and collaborated with Sam Bush, Steve Earle and Emmylou Harris. He’s written songs for mainstream artists, including Travis Tritt, Zac Brown, Brad Paisley and Sara Evans, all the while bringing his special guitar style to his own gigs. He’s taking a break from his tour with Zac Brown to be with us!
Cutting their teeth in progressive bluegrass jams in San Francisco’s Mission District and rehearsing across the bay in Oakland, Front Country fashioned their own take on roots music and Indie Folk. A mandolinist, guitarist, bassist, violinist and a female lead singer with grit and soul come together to create a show that you won’t soon forget.
David Childers & the Serpents return to the Hillside Theatre with rock, bluegrass and
gospel. On the heels of their new album, Run Skeleton Run, the band is touring America and is as hot as ever. Once a Mount Holly lawyer, Childers has collaborated with the Avett Brothers, who coaxed him out of musical hiatus and made contributions to the new album. Most notably though, Childers will bring to the stage the characters from in and around Gaston County.
Sinners & Saints is a two-man band that recently toured in Europe with a dozen stops
from the Netherlands to Italy. They’ll bring a special mix of acoustic, country-tinged tunes with compelling harmonies and foot-powered percussion on repurposed drums from an abandoned kit.
PJ Brunson has been described as the female James Taylor. Her music is described as eclectic, refreshingly memorable, meaningful and fun. It’s thought provoking, emotion-evoking, genre-bending and the kind of music you have to sing along to.
Carolina Sonrise, a talented group of local musicians on double bass, banjo, guitar and more, brings a special blend of bluegrass gospel to the Garden.
