Red June Comes to Rooster's Wife
The Rooster's Wife presents the Americana sound of Red June, Saturday, Feb. 2, for a pre-Super Bowl celebration.
The 100-seat listening room at the corner of Knight and Poplar in downtown Aberdeen features acoustic music of all genres.
Shows continue this winter through March 24 on consecutive Sundays. All shows begin at 6:45 p.m.
Asheville's Red June is well on the way to becoming a longtime Southern favorite, akin to the Appalachian heirloom apple from which they glean their name. Last year, the band released their second studio album, "Beauty Will Come," to high acclaim, and performed at dozens of other shows and festivals all across the country, including the renowned Music City Roots show, Suwannee Springfest and the 25th Anniversary MerleFest.
They performed an official showcase to a packed house at the Station Inn in Nashville for the Americana Music Association conference and were featured in Southern Living magazine.
Red June includes Will Straughan on resonator guitar, guitar and vocals; John Cloyd Miller on mandolin, guitar and vocals; and Natalya Weinstein on fiddle and vocals.
The three have been longtime friends, and first jammed together at an Asheville party in 2005.
In late 2008, they formed Red June and went on to release their debut, "Remember Me Well," in 2010, which was voted the No. 1 regional release of 2010 by the listeners of the Southeast's premier independent radio station, WNCW.
Home base is the gallery room of Poplar Knight Spot, 114 Knight St. in downtown Aberdeen, two blocks east of U.S. 1. For more information, or to purchase tickets with credit or debit card, visit theroosterswife.org or call (910) 944-7502.
