By now you’ve probably already made plans to join the editors of Southern Living in Charleston June 10-12th for our 50th anniversary celebration with a weekend of exclusive dinners, window box gawking with the Grumpy Gardener himself, and a host of other curated tours from art galleries to historic homes.
But no Southern Living event would be complete without music, and this weekend will be no exception. On Saturday night, June 11th, we’ll be showcasing two of our favorite artists, Parker Millsap and the Secret Sisters.
Oklahoman singer songwriter Parker Millsap’s new album, The Very Last Day, is the anticipated follow-up to his eponymous 2014 release, which netted him high-profile praise from NPR, the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and others, as well as a nomination for Americana Emerging Artist of the Year. We are so digging his latest material for its early Elvis-esque attitude mashed up with moaning blues riffs and hyped up bluegrass backgrounds.
We’ve been crushing on the sweetness of Secret Sisters since their self-titled debut album in 2010. They’ve spent the past year recording their new album with Brandi Carlile, and you can catch them with us in Charleston before they head out on the road later this summer with John Paul White, formerly of the Civil Wars, to support his much anticipated solo tour.
The waterfront concert will also feature barbecue brought to you by Swig & Swine, Home Team BBQ and Food for the Southern Soul – plus sweet & savory biscuits passed by Callie’s Charleston Biscuits. You can also sample the city’s craft beer scene with brews provided by Coast Brewing, Cooper River Brewing, Holy City Brewing, Palmetto Brewing, Tradesman Brewing and Spire Wines.
