Beech Mountain Resort is excited to announce the 2019 Summer Concert Series presented by Appalachian Mountain Brewery.
Happening in June, July and August, the Summer Concert Series 2019 will offer three outdoor shows featuring contemporary roots music greats the Steep Canyon Rangers with Acoustic Syndicate, funk legends Galactic with The Get Right Band and jamband veterans moe.
On Saturday, June 15, the award-winning Steep Canyon Rangers will headline the first show of the season. Hailing from the greater Asheville, NC, area, the band won a Grammy Award for their Nobody Knows You album. And, their collaborations with the legendary Steve Martin won the prestigious International Bluegrass Music Association Entertainer of the Year Award. Their latest album is the well-received Out In The Open.
Opening up for the Rangers are western North Carolina newgrass legends Acoustic Syndicate. Now celebrating 25 years of beautiful songs and intense instrumental jams, the group continues to tour and they are as impressive and entertaining as ever. This one-two Tar Heel State combination will be a show for the ages.
On Friday, July 19, New Orleans-based funk rockers Galactic come to the mountain with special guests The Get Right Band. Fresh off the release of their new 2019 album Already Ready Already, Galactic are happy and motivated as they bring their massive instrumental grooves to the mountains. Fans can expect a seriously funky evening at this highly-anticipated ‘The Big Easy Meets the High Country’outdoor show.
Opening up for Galactic will be the Asheville-based psychedelic indie rockers The Get Right Band, who are sure to set the right mood for this fun night of music.
On Saturday, August 24, the series finale will feature a jamband dance party with the group moe. Fueled by dual guitars and an exploratory groove, moe. has toured the world while recording over 20 albums during their 30-year career. At times featuring progressive rock influences that meld with southern rock and funk, the group tends to improvise on whatever their fertile minds come up with on any given night.
