The Rhythm & Brews Concert Series stage in downtown Hendersonville.

Whatever your musical tastes, Rhythm & Brews is sure to put a smile on your face and broaden your musical horizons.

Running through September, these free outdoor shows will ramp up the fun in downtown Hendersonville on the 3rd Thursday of each month. In 2019 that means you need to mark down May 16, June 20, July 18, August 15, and September 19 on your calendars. The shows will feature two opening acts starting at 5:30 pm, with the headliners starting at 7:30 pm.

Located on Main Street between Caswell and Allen Streets, the shows will once again feature some great local brews alongside the best concert line up in Henderson County.

Featured drinks will include the craft brew styling of Henderson County’s own Sierra Nevada, Southern Appalachian, Triskelion, Dry Falls, and Sanctuary Breweries alongside Bold Rock & Flat Rock Cideries and the delectable grape creations of Saint Paul Mountain Vineyards.

The popoular Hands On! Family Zone returns in 2019 as a kid friendly destination within the show, and the National Guard misting tent will again round out an entertainment experience designed for the whole family!

2019 Concert Series Schedule

May 16 – Rock/Southern Rock/Boogie

Headliner: The Broadcast

­Produced by multi Grammy winner Jim Scott, The Broadcast is a soulful blues roots rock band formed in New York City and developed in Asheville, North Carolina. Fronted by the explosive vocals of Caitlin Krisko, the bands live shows bring back the spirit of high energy performances originally made famous by 1970s classic rock bands.

Opener: The Screamin J’s

Boogie-Woogie piano music at it’s finest, The Screamin J’s hold nothing back with their wild and zany performances. Found somewhere in-between a honkey-tonk barn party and an Americana trio on a long psychedelic “trip”, you won’t be disappointed with the infectious energy that is a Screaming J’s performance!

June 20 – Rock/American Rock

Headliner: Travers Brothership

Songwriters. Singers. Multi-instrumentalists. Brothers. At only 25, twins Eric Travers and Kyle Travers have been writing songs and stunning live audiences for well over half their lifetime. Presenting a soulful, bluesy, taste of rock n’ roll spun in psychedelic jam, Travers Brothership; also including singer/bassist/songwriter, Josh Clark, and keyboardist/songwriter/percussionist, Ian McIsaac, create a fierce and balanced team, strengthened by the 12 years they’ve spent together on and off the road.

Opener: Big Daddy Love

Big Daddy Love is a five-piece band with a unique and natural blend of rock, roots and grass that they call ‘Appalachian Rock’. Above the mix, the lead vocals and acoustic guitar accompaniment of their principal songwriter, Scott Moss, command the listener’s attention and call for the harmonies that arise in response. Twin leads of Stratocaster riffs and soaring Allman-esque slide guitar on the one hand, and 5-string Scruggs / Fleck style banjo on the other– like a typical Southern rock line-up, just replacing the second guitar with the banjo– punctuate and emphasize what Moss delivers.

July 18 – Americana/Rock/Southern Rock

Headliner: Colby Dietz Band
Opener: Kenny George Band

August 15 – Americana/Bluegrass

Headliner: Fireside Collective
Opener: Tellico

September 19 – Soul/Funk/Brass
