Next Main Stage Concert:

Michael Reno Harrell

Michael Reno Harrell
Saturday, May 19, 7:30 p.m.

Michael Reno Harrell is an award-winning songwriter, veteran storyteller, and entertainer from the Southern Appalachian Mountains. Michael has been performing for more than 50 years, entertaining audiences across the U.S. and Europe. His combination of music and storytelling are based in experience, sometimes downright funny, sometimes a bit scary, but always entertaining. One could compare Michael's performances to his granddaddy's pocket knife: well-worn and familiar-feeling, but razor sharp and with a point. Harrell's deep soothing voice will carry you through a journey filled with family, lovers, moonshiners, and dreamers.
