In continuing the “Cultural Series,” which encourages and promotes artistic events, performances and symposiums around Western North Carolina, the “Sunday Soiree” will provide a platform for local, regional and national acts, right here in our own backyard.
Based out of Burlington, Vermont, Sam and Zack DuPont have been busy on the road since 2013. Their two records — “Heavy as Lead” (2015) and “A Riddle For You” (2016) — have taken them up and down the Eastern Seaboard and across the Midwest.
The DuPont Brothers have made festival appearances at Grand Point North and South-By-Southwest (SXSW). They also have supported a wide array of national acts, including Grammy award winning artists like Sturgill Simpson, Jerry Douglas and Blake Mills. There’s an EP in the works for 2017.
Tickets for the “Sunday Soiree” are $10 per person. Craft beer and wine will be available for purchase. Tickets can be bought online at www.folkmoot.org or at the door.
This performance is expected to garner a great audience, so be sure to get your tickets in advance. A portion of the proceeds will go to the continued activities and events put on by Folkmoot.
As well, The Smoky Mountain News would like to encourage all art lovers and music freaks to attend this performance. If all goes well with attendance, the idea is to create and showcase similar events around the region (Sylva, Franklin, Bryson City, etc.). But, all of this only happens if the most important ingredient is added — you and yours.
