Some information about the performers:
Red June is a dynamic, acoustic band known for performing beautifully distilled Americana music. The Red June sound is as versatile and original as the musicians themselves; they touch on bluegrass, old-time, roots rock, and traditional country music with powerful harmonies, innovative songwriting, and expert musicianship. Despite being a relatively new project, Red June has been busy touring across the country and has performed at Bristol Rhythm & Roots, Shakori Hills Grassroots Festival, Music City Roots and the Lake Eden Arts Festival (LEAF). Their debut album, Remember Me Well (September 2010), was voted #1 in WNCW’s Regional Top 20 Contest. Their highly anticipated follow-up, Beauty Will Come, will be officially released in June 2012. However, you’ll be able to get an advance copy in the Café following their concert! Red June is Will Straughan on dobro, guitar, and vocals; Natalya Weinstein on fiddle and vocals; and John Cloyd Miller on mandolin, guitar, and vocals.
