Buchanan Boys bring modern country music

Sylva-based The Buchanan Boys take the stage from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 6, at the Bridge Park Pavilion as part of the free summer Concerts on the Creek series in downtown Sylva.

The Buchanan Boys will play a setlist that is heavy on covers with five or six original songs mixed in. Folks can expect country hits from the likes of Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean and the Zac Brown Band.

“We’re a cross between southern rock and country,” said lead guitarist Adam Blythe. “It’s country, but not old country with a twang.”

Joining Blythe in the band are vocalist/guitarist Chris Pressley, drummer Michael Cannon, bass guitarist/vocalist Sam McCarson and rhythm guitarist/vocalist Neal Morgan.

The band selected the name Buchanan Boys because both Pressley and Morgan had a grandfather named Frank H. Buchanan.

Concerts on the Creek are co-produced by: Jackson County Parks & Recreation, Jackson County Chamber of Commerce, the Downtown Sylva Association, Jackson Country Travel & Tourism, and the Town of Sylva.
