Weaverville’s Music on Main

Saturday, June 20, 5-9 PM

Featuring Dangermuffin, DownTown Abby & the Echoes, and the winner of our 2020 Weaverville Song Contest!

Weaverville’s Music on Main is an open-air, one-night concert event on Main Street in Weaverville, featuring two powerful bands, each with a distinct style and sound, along with an opening act yet to be revealed!

Our opening act this year will be the winner of the 2020 Weaverville Song contest!

Asheville’s own DownTown Abby & the Echoes brings  powerful vocals, tasty guitar licks and a groovy rhythm section – they are a must-see for all ages and musical preferences!

Our Headliner this year is Dangermuffin, from Charleston SC. Whether in the studio or on stage, Dangermuffin’s sound has always been conspicuously greater than the sum of its parts, and to witness the band live is to question everything you know about the dynamics of sound.

2020 Performers

Dangermuffin

Charleston, SC’s Dangermuffin is an eclectic quartet that weaves lyrical themes of sea, sun, and spiritual connection with Americana, Island influenced, Folk and Jam grooves. The band’s live show swims between tasty acoustic, and rockin’ electric sounds. On the band’s 6th and latest release, ‘Heritage,’ Dangermuffin reaches into their creative arsenal to craft an album showcasing the band’s signature coastal-influenced grooves mixed with Americana sensibilities and Appalachian fingerpicking. The album’s lyrics contemplate the universal human connection to our ancestors, ancient traditions and symbols while yearning for humanity to get back to its roots. It is an audible showcase weaving introspective lyrics with catchy, nimble guitar riffs. Fittingly, the album’s soaring vocals were recorded in Charleston’s historic Unitarian Church, a National Historic Landmark built in 1772. 

Dangermuffin is: 

Dan Lotti (vocals, electric guitar, acoustic guitar) 

Mike Sivilli (electric guitar, acoustic guitar, vocals) 

Steven Sandifer (percussion, drums, upright bass, vocals)
