The Asheville group Red June will be the featured performer
during Friday night’s Kick-Off of the Autolawn Party! The concert will be in the Auditorium of the Arts & Science Center of the Catawba Valley (in the same building as the Hickory Museum of Art).
Red June is well underway to becoming a long-time southern favorite, akin to the Appalachian heirloom apple from which they glean their name. During the past year they released their second studio album, Beauty Will Come, to high acclaim, and performed at dozens of shows and festivals all across the country including the renowned Music City Roots show, Suwannee Springfest and the 25th Anniversary MerleFest. They were also featured in Southern Living magazine with Douglas Rogers writing, “Bands like Old Crow Medicine Show, The Avett Brothers, and Red June have recently put the sounds of Appalachia back on the map.” 2013 has seen continued writing and touring for the band and was highlighted by John winning 1st place in the bluegrass category at the Chris Austin Songwriting Contest at MerleFest.
