Join us in Rogers Park Amphitheater in the Town of Tryon, North Carolina Friday July 26 at 7pm for a concert by Mac Arnold & Plate Full O’ Blues. Mac’s first band included James Brown on piano. Mac moved to Chicago and Muddy Waters hired him to play bass. He toured and recorded with the Muddy Waters Band 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 TV show. Mac now has his own Chicago style blues band, Mac Arnold & Plate Full O’ Blues. Mac is one of the few remaining legendary old school blues men who puts on a stellar show. At 76 years old, Mac Arnold’s voice is absolutely amazing and his band is super tight. The band features Austin Brashier (lead guitar, vocals) Max Hightower (keys, harp, vocals) and a rotating list of hot drummers. Mac was inducted into the Alabama Blues Hall of Fame in September 2017. macarnold.com
Bring a comfy chair, and cooler if you like. Summer Tracks is a “cooler friendly” event for sensible, of-age patrons, but we do NOT sell alcohol. You can certainly bring your own, but we encourage you to purchase your evening’s beer/wine from The Tryon Bottle just down the street. (tryonbottle.com). Also, Katie D’s NY Deli will have tasty food and desserts for sale on site. Both are wonderful and generous sponsors of Summer Tracks.
