Grammy Award winning artists to perform at the McCelvey Center
on Feb. 22 at 7:30 p.m.
YORK, SC - Playing an assortment of stringed instruments, Tim O’Brien and Darrell Scott will be delivering their easy bluegrass style and brotherly harmonies to the McCelvey Center on Feb. 22. Noted American songwriters, Scott and O’Brien are true modern-day folk artists with something to say. The crafty pickers’ collaborative songwriting serves up their coal-country roots with a green-living mindset; environmental concern over coal-mining is voiced most purposely with “Keep Your Dirty Lights On,” nominated for a 2013 Grammy for Best American Roots Song. West Virginian Tim O’Brien won a Grammy for Best Traditional Folk Album in 2005 with “Fiddlers’ Green.”
Kentucky native Darrell Scott has written hit songs for Nashville’s finest – Garth Brooks, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Brad Paisley, and the Dixie Chicks. Scott’s “Hank Williams’ Ghost” was named the 2007 Americana Song of the Year. The duo’s latest album, “Memories and Moments,” has received critical acclaim and was recorded the old fashioned way – with the two artists in the studio, playing live in-the-moment without overdubs or other sound effects.
The 2014 Southern Sound Series is presented by the Friends of McCelvey in the McCelvey Center’s Lowry Family Theater. Noted for its remarkable acoustics, the historic theater seats over 500 guests and has a lovely 1920s ambiance. The McCelvey Center is located on 212 E. Jefferson St., York, SC 29745
