The Transylvania County Library will continue its tradition of gathering the community for music and camaraderie with its Summer Concert Series. This free event series will take place at the library’s amphitheater each Friday in June. In the event of rain, the concert will take place in the Rogow Community Room. Concerts will begin at 7:30 p.m. and continue through sunset.

For the second year running, Blake Ellege will take stage to begin the series on June 7. Previously performing with his blues and country arrangements, this time he will be joined by his dance band The Big Throwback. The audience should be prepared for an energetic and nostalgic look back at the top hits from the 1950s to today. With their mastery of many styles, the band will weave through a range of genres including classic rock, oldies, jazz, R&B and funk.

The series will continue June 14 with Hannah Kaminer & The Wistfuls. Raised in western North Carolina, Kaminer is a singer-songwriter who infuses Appalachian and country traditions into her songs of love, loss and home. On the heels of a 2024 album release, she is touring with her band The Wistfuls.

On June 21 Alamance County native Drew Foust will appear with his band The Wheelhouse. Raised in rich musical traditions, Foust has been developing his unique sound which melds rock n’ roll, blues and soul from an early age.

Constantly honing his craft, Foust is currently touring following his latest release “Good Thing” which is inspired by the Memphis soul music of the 1960s and 1970s.

The series will conclude June 28 with the Winston-Salem based band His & Hers. Fronted by a husband and wife duo, this four-piece brand will bring the familiar sound of folk/bluegrass, Americanagrass if you will, to our mountain home. The performance is sure to provide a fitting send-off to the series.
