Brush Fire Concert

July 13 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Brasstown Community Center is proud to welcome back Brush Fire on Saturday, July 13th, 2024 as part of our Summer Concert Series.

Brush Fire was founded in 1977 in Newnan, Ga. Their vocals and instrumental work, enthusiastic performances and varied repertoire keeps creating demand for their brand of bluegrass.

Mike Fleming has played guitar with the group since its inception. He also contributes lead and harmony vocals and by default serves as emcee for their shows. Kerry Warbington joined the group in 1989 on banjo and vocal harmonies. He is well known in bluegrass circles for his creative and solid banjo playing.

Hiawassee resident Robert Brewer plays the upright bass and sings lead and tenor in the trios and quartets. Jeff Partridge is the newest member of the group. As a longtime friend of the band, he is currently playing mandolin and adding lead and harmony vocals to the music.

The Brasstown Community Civic Center is proud to be a part of the Blue Ridge Music Trails. Visit BlueRidgeMusicNC.com to find more traditional music of Western North Carolina.

We appreciate the generosity of Ledford & Parker Construction in Hayesville – a family-owned and operated company, in business since 1984.

Doors open at 6 p.m. and the music starts at 7 p.m. Admission is $10, children under 12 are free. Hot dog and barbecue sandwich plates, homemade cobbler, ice cream and root beer floats will be available for purchase.

Fundraiser concerts are held May through August on the second and fourth Saturdays. The center is a non-profit, and all proceeds from the concerts and facility rentals are for maintenance and upkeep of the building. For details, call 828-361-3040 or visit www.brasstowncommunitycenter.org.
