Townsend to Kick Off 2-month Music Series

The Great Smoky Mountain Heritage Center in Townsend kicks off the fourth season of its summer concert series, Sunset Music, in a couple of weeks with a concert by Boston string band Hokum’s Heroes on Friday, June 12.

The series provides more than two months of live music from local, regional, and national acts at the Heritage Center’s outdoor amphitheater, which this year features new sound and lighting systems, an expanded stage, and a roof so concerts can be presented rain or shine.

The series continues with blues rockers Blue Mother Tupelo on June 19; Sparky and Rhonda Rucker on July 3; the John Myers Band on July 24; Wild Blue Yonder on July 31; Y’uns on Aug. 14; and champion flatpicking guitarist Steve Kaufman on Aug. 21.

All shows start at 7 p.m. Admission is $4 (Heritage Center members get in free). Three more concerts for the fall are to be announced soon.
