Hailing from Asheville, North Carolina, Red June is well under way to becoming a southern favorite, akin to the Appalachian heirloom apple from which they glean their name. 2012 was a big year for the band; they released their second studio album, Beauty Will Come, to high acclaim and performed at dozens of shows and festivals across the country, including the renowned Music City Roots show, Suwannee Springfest, and the 25th Anniversary MerleFest.
Band members include Will Straughan on dobro, guitar, and vocals; John Cloyd Miller on mandolin, guitar, and vocals, and Natalya Weinstein on fiddle and vocals. With their dynamic yet refined sound featuring striking three-part harmonies, tasteful instrumental work, and honest, soulful songwriting that seamlessly blends bluegrass, old-time, country and American roots music, the band is constantly breaking new musical ground.
Barbecue fare will be available for purchase, and the galleries will remain open until 6 pm. In the event of rain, the concert will be held in the auditorium.
