“Dogwood winter” refers to an unseasonable cold spell that happens in late April or early May. This is the time when the dogwood trees typically bloom in the Smoky Mountain region. This year around that time, a band was formed. Just as the flowers blossomed, a porch jam turned into a 4 piece acoustic act. The band was dubbed Dogwood Winter and started booking shows. The group consists of Swain County residents George Lane on guitar, Liz Nance on guitar, Erin Worley on banjo, and Alma Russ on fiddle. Taking turns singing leads and harmonies, this band of pirates and gypsies is making its way in western North Carolina with a diverse set of original music and interesting cover tunes.
Come see Dogwood Winter tonight! Join us on the porch at Great Smoky Mtn Railroad depot in Bryson City. The show is free and family friendly. Bring a camping chair as seating is limited. Rain or Shine. The concert is part of the Music in the Mountains concert series put on by the Swain County Chamber of Commerce.
