Valdese, NC – Concerts at the Rock continues on February 2nd as the Old Rock School welcomes Love Canon to the stage. Love Canon brings their acoustic-roots sensibilities to the electronic-tinged pop hits of the 80’s and 90’s. Love Canon delivers a fresh set of classics, crossing genres to recount music of decades past from the likes of Peter Gabriel, Billy Joel, Depeche Mode, and Paul Simon. Their most recent album hosts a plethora of special guests including Jerry Douglas, Aoife O’Donovan, Keller Williams, Michael Cleveland, and Eric Krasno, among others.
The band’s diehard fans are music lovers first and are drawn to the charismatic and wide-ranging vocal stylings of lead singer and guitarist Jesse Harper matched with banjo master Adam Larrabee, mandolin pickin’ by Andy Thacker, Darrell Muller holding down the low-end on standup bass, and the slick sounds of resonator guitar king Jay Starling on the Beard MA-6. It’s acoustic rock! Acclaimed fiddler Alex Hargreaves [Turtle Island Quartet, Sarah Jarosz] occasionally joins them on tour.
As seasoned virtuoso string players who have been touring the mid-Atlantic since 2010, Love Canon stays true to the approach, arrangements, and keen artistry of these nostalgic hits. “We are very excited to offer this new blend of music at the Old Rock School this season”, states Morrissa Angi Community Affairs Director for the Town of Valdese, “Love Canon is sure to put on an amazing performance for all to enjoy.”
The night will kick off with an opening performance by Greg Mastin & The Druthers. Offering a showcase of Don Hogan originals complemented by everything from the Beatles to Hank Williams, Greg Mastin & The Druthers are sure to open the night with an outstanding blend of Americana.
