Michael Reno Harrell to perform at BRAHM
The Blowing Rock Art & History Museum is hosting Michael
Reno Harrell as part of its Sunday Concert Series on Sunday, July 13.
The concert begins at 5:30 p.m. in the atrium of the museum. Tickets cost $20, with light refreshments to follow.
Michael Reno Harrell is an award-winning songwriter, as well as a veteran storyteller and entertainer, from the Southern Appalachian Mountains. His recordings top the Americana Music Association charts year after year, and his original songs and stories have been described as “Appalachian grit and wit.”
But, as his writing shows, Harrell’s awareness is much broader than the bounds of his boyhood home or even the Southern experience. Having toured throughout the British Isles and much of Europe, as well as most of the U.S., he creates songs and stories that reflect an insight into people’s experiences that catch the ear like an old friend’s voice, according to BRAHM.
Harrell’s natural knack for storytelling — in print, song and spoken word — has earned him praise from not only the music community, but from the literary and storytelling worlds, as well, having had the honor of being a featured teller at the National Storytelling Festival and to be Teller-in-Residence at the International Storytelling Center, as well as performing at major music events, like MerleFest and the Walnut Valley Festival. Along with his performances, he often conducts workshops in songwriting and storytelling, as well. Harrell’s recordings have for years received and continue to garner awards in country, Americana and folk circles.
