Weaverville’s Music on Main
Friday, June 23, 5-9
Featuring The Broadcasts and Raising Caine
The Weaverville Business Association, sponsors of regional art festival Art in Autumn, is hosting a new event this year, an open air, one night concert event on Main Street in Weaverville featuring up-and-coming local band The Broadcast with Raising Caine. The event will take place in front of Town Hall (30 South Main Street, Weaverville, NC 28787) from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Friday, June 23, 2017. The event is free and open to the public.
The Broadcast, formed in Brooklyn 2007, is a rock and soul band that relocated to Asheville, NC to do some soul-searching. They boast an authentic soul, blues and rock sound and have shared the stage with the likes of Mavis Staples, John Prine, St. Paul & The Broken Bones, The Wood Brothers, Brandi Carlisle, Keller Williams, Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers, George Porter Jr. (Funky Meters). Their sophomore record released this June, From The Horizon, was produced by Jim Scott who has worked with the Tedeschi Trucks Band and Tom Petty and to rave reviews.
Opening for The Broadcast is Raising Caine, an Americana band fronted by lead singer-songwriter and Asheville native, Caine McDonald. Members of the band come from many musical backgrounds but their sound is distinctly rooted in Appalachia.
The event will include food, drink, kids activities and booths. Local restaurants will be open all along Main Street. Traffic will be stopped between Merrimon Avenue and Brown Street. Parking is free at Weaverville Primary School.
