The Great Balsam Songwriters in the Round Series begins its delayed 2020 season with Scott Miller, RB Morris and Ed Snodderly live at Queen Auditorium on the Folkmoot Center campus.
Our usual In The Round setting might not be possible for this show, in order to meet Coronavirus distancing needs. In this case, the performers will perform onstage, with proper spacing guidelines for the audience. More information to come.
Performers in our Songwriters series trade songs and stories about the songwriting trade. The style, in which the performers sit in a circle in the middle of the room with the audience all around, was popularized by the legendary Bluebird Cafe in Nashville. Most of our performers have played that venue many times.
Now almost 25 years old, the Great Balsam series is in its second year at Queen Auditorium, and launches its delayed 2020 series with a stellar performance featuring Black Mountain’s Malcolm Holcombe; RB Morris, poet, songwriter, band leader and sometimes playwright from Knoxville and Ed Snodderly, a ten-year member of the Brother Boys and co-founder of the Down Home Pickin’ Parlor in Johnson City.
The 2020 Great Balsam Songwriters in the Round Series at Folkmoot is sponsored by Suzanne and Alan Klimek.
All music at the Folkmoot Center | Queen Auditorium is sponsored in part by the Blue Ridge National Heritage Area.
