Chillin’ with the Harris Brothers
For the past two years, the Best Cellar and Inn at Ragged
Gardens have hosted an outdoor summer music series.
Every Friday afternoon, folks bring lawn chairs and blankets to the front lawn of the Best Cellar and sit back and enjoy a few hours of great music.
You can always tell when the Harris Brothers are playing there, because the place is packed with hundreds of music lovers, some of them overflowing to the other side of Sunset Drive.
That’s the kind of enthusiasm that Reggie and Ryan Harris regularly inspire. Wherever they play, their fans find them.
The Harris Brothers will present a special concert for WinterFest, called “Chillin’ with the Harris Brothers.” The concert will take place at the Blowing Rock School Auditorium at 8 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 25.
Tickets are $15 each, or $25 for two when purchased through the Blowing Rock Chamber of Commece.
The Harris Brothers’ repertoire is so huge that you can see them again and again and always hear new songs. Some tunes, such as their cover of Dire Straits’ “Sultans of Swing,” have become fan favorites.
The duo also plays blues, Southern rock, classic rock, folk music, pop and the occasional country or bluegrass tune.
Over the past few years, the Harris Brothers have performed at MerleFest, Hickory Fest and the Wayne Henderson Festival. They have shared the stage with accomplished musicians, such as Vassar Clements, Bobby Hicks, David Holt, Peter Rowan, David Grisman and Laura Boosinger, just to name a few.
