Hailing from the Southern Appalachian backwoods of Castlewood, Virginia (population: 2,045), 49 Winchester is a rapidly rising alt-country/rock act.
For the better part of the last decade, the band has been relentlessly working its way through the Southeastern music industry — playing every stage and festival that’ll have ‘em — where now the raucous group is whispered in the same breath (of raw talent and sincere passion) as the Drive-By Truckers, Tyler Childers and Sturgill Simpson, to name a few.
Due to North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper’s announcement on Wednesday, June 24, to extend Phase 2 of Covid-19 restrictions until at least July 17, the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce has postponed the 11th season of Concerts on the Creek again until at least July 17.
Concerts on the Creek are held from 7 to 9 p.m. every Friday night through Labor Day. The series is organized and put on by the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce, the Town of Sylva, and the Jackson County Parks and Recreation Department.
