Everything is Rosie (Rosemary Clooney Tribute) featuring the Wendy Jones Quartet

July 29th at 7:30 pm

Hendersonville Theatre proudly presents... Everything Is Rosie, a tribute to Rosemary Clooney, as July’s intimate Hometown Sound concert.

Everything Is Rosie tells the story of Rosemary Clooney’s rise to the top of the Billboard charts in the 1950s, her success in Hollywood in films like White Christmas followed by her mental breakdown, and finally her triumphant return to the top of the jazz charts in the 1980s and 1990s. It is a compelling story of heartbreak, tragedy, perseverance, and triumph. As Wendy Jones takes the audience on a riveting trip through Rosemary’s life, she interweaves some of Rosemary’s most beloved hits such as "Come On A My House", "Half as Much,” "Hey There" and Tenderly," as well as songs from her movie musicals and jazz standards by composers such as George Gershwin, Duke Ellington, and Harold Arlen.

Bluegrass Night featuring Buncombe Turnpike & Holler Choir

August 26 at 7:30 pm

Hendersonville Theatre proudly presents Asheville bluegrass favorites Buncombe Turnpike and Holler Choir as August’s intimate Hometown Sound concert. Come and celebrate a new downhome tradition as an established local bluegrass band takes to the stage with the newcomers who are carrying the genre’s rich musical traditions into the future.

Lead singer and bass player Tom Godleski began Buncombe Turnpike in the fall of 1997. Buncombe Turnpike plays a variety of heartfelt tunes ranging from traditional and contemporary bluegrass to gospel and hand crafted Buncombe Turnpike originals. With its crowd pleasing demeanor, seasoned musicianship, and powerful vocals, the band has made a name for themselves among traditional and contemporary listeners alike. Bluegrass and a touch of folk and old-time make their music highly listenable. Buncombe Turnpike is considered one of the premier bluegrass bands from Asheville and has had several albums named top Bluegrass Album on WNC. The band has also played across the country and traveled to Spain for performances. In 2007 they opened for Marty Stuart, for the Cherryholmes Family, and for Sam Bush, and took first place in the North Carolina Mountain State Fair bluegrass competition. They will be debuting songs from their ninth album at this concert. Buncombe Turnpike is made up of Godleski (vocals, upright bass), Korey Warren (guitar, mandolin, vocals), David Hyatt (guitar, mandolin, vocals), George Buckner (banjo) and Don Lewis (fiddle, mandolin, vocals).

In February of 2022, Holler Choir began when a group of young, talented roots musicians converged on Cross Roads Studios in Asheville. The meeting’s purpose was to make a solo record for Americana artist Clint Roberts. However, Roberts realized while recording “Holler Choir” that his idea for a record was the perfect thesis for something larger. Guided by Grammy-winning multi-instrumentalist Michael Ashworth (Steep Canyon Rangers), Roberts’s crew of bluegrass and old-time inspired peers became the band that is now known as Holler Choir. Based in Asheville, Holler Choir is a string band with members Clint Roberts (guitar, vocals), Helena Rose (banjo, vocals), Norbert McGettigan (bass, vocals), Bridger Dunnagan (fiddle), and a rotating cast of additional talent. Their sound features tight vocal harmonies, driving clawhammer banjo energy, introspective lyrics, and melodic hooks. In late 2022, the band joined forces with Michael Ashworth again to produce Holler Choir's debut full-length record, “Songs Before They Write Themselves.”. The record was engineered by Jason Richmond (Avett Brothers, Rising Appalachia) and Grammy-winning Kim Rosen mastered the album. Brevard native Clint Roberts is the chief songwriter and singer for Holler Choir
and has collected a series of industry nods in recent years, including shout-outs from Rolling Stone, Bill Board, American Songwriter, and Cowboys & Indians.

Mac Arnold & Plate Full O' Blues (Command Performance)

September 23, 2023 at 7:30

Mac Arnold & Plate Full O’ Blues returns to Hendersonville Theatre in September for a command performance! Alabama Blues Hall of Fame member Mac Arnold's first band included James Brown on piano. He toured and recorded with the Muddy Waters Band and recorded LPs with Otis Spann and John Lee Hooker. Mac moved to Los Angeles and produced Soul Train with his friend Don Cornelius. He even played bass on the Sanford & Son television show when he wasn't playing bass for Otis Redding and B.B. King. After retiring from show business to become an organic farmer, Mac is back with his own band and a "plate full" of CDs, building a new foundation in blues, soul and funk.

​As part of the Muddy Waters Band, Mac helped shape the electric blues sound that inspired the rock and roll movement of the late 60’s and early 70’s. Regular guests of the band included Eric Clapton, Paul Butterfield, Mike Bloomfield, and Elvin Bishop. The Muddy Waters Band (as a unit) shared the stage with the likes of Howlin’ Wolfe, Elmore James, Jimmy Reed, Junior Wells, Big Joe Williams, and Big Mama Thornton just to name a few. During this time, Mac played on John Lee Hooker’s “live “album, Live at the Café Au Go-Go, as well as Otis Spann’s classic recording “The Blues is Where It’s At”.

Mac later formed the Soul Invaders which backed up many artists, including The Temptations and B. B. King. In the early 70’s, he moved to Los Angeles to work at ABC Television and LAFF RECORDS (Redd Foxx). This led to working on the set of Soul Train from 1971 to 1975 and then working with Bill Withers (“Lean On Me”) before moving back to South Carolina in the 80's.

​Mac now resides in Pelzer, SC, where at the age of ten he got his first taste of the blues when he learned to play his brother Leroy’s home-made guitar. Going back to his roots. Mac is serving up a mess of Blues with his own band, “Mac Arnold & Plate Full O’ Blues”. The band consists Austin Brashier on guitar and vocals, Max Hightower on harmonica and vocals, Rick Latham on drums, Mike Frost on bass, and Mac Arnold on vocals and Gas Can Guitars.

The Blues Music Awards have taken notice of Mac Arnold over the past few years. Mac was on hand for the 31st annual Blues Music Awards held May 6, 2010 in Memphis. Mac accepted the award for Best Historical Album for his participation in the 1966 recording Muddy Waters - Authorized Bootleg: Live at the Fillmore Auditorium (Geffen Records) The recording was released in 2009.
