If there’s one thing I love more than college football, it’s live music.
This Saturday, I get college football, live music, and a brand new CD.
How is my future so bright? The secret is the CD Release Party for
the new Ragged Orchids CD this Saturday at Horizon Records.
From 2:30 to 4 PM you can come hear one of Greenville, SC’s
longest-running local bands tugging at your heartstrings with
brilliant harmonies and string-pickin’ melodies. The Ragged Orchids’
new CD has been in the works for a long time, and it’s time to
I’ve seen The Ragged Orchids probably a dozen times but I still
struggle to categorize them. New country? Southern folk?
Psuedo-acoustic pop-slash-modern Americana bluegrass?
Scratch the categories. The Ragged Orchids have grown into one of the
best-known bands Greenville gets to claim as her own, and if you
haven’t seen them before now is your chance to find out for free.
It’s almost normal for any band to spend years working on a CD these
days, but finally releasing an album’s worth of music to the public is
a bigger deal than you probably think. Now’s your chance to be part
of it. Free music, free parking, free high-fives, even free cupcakes
and brownies, all at Horizon Records this Saturday 9/29 from 2:30 to 4
PM (corner of Main St & Stone Ave).
