Bristol, Tenn.-Va. (May 5, 2022) – The Birthplace of Country Music proudly presents the return of the 1927 Society Concert Series featuring Amanda Anne Platt & The Honeycutters coming to the Birthplace of Country Music Museum on May 20. The evening will begin at 6:00 p.m. EDT with heavy hors d’oeuvres provided by Catering by Catherine and drinks included in the price of the ticket. Tickets are now on sale to the public.
The music of Asheville, North Carolina-based outfit Amanda Anne Platt & The Honeycutters is nuanced, bringing insight and wit to the stories Platt tells through songwriting. Lyrically driven, the band’s country roots music often inspires introspection, whether it be about life on the road, heartache or hope.
There is an empathetic and charming wit ingrained in Platt’s songwriting. She has a knack for accessing a deep well of emotion and applying it to her story-telling, whether she is writing from her own experiences or immersing herself into the melody of emotions in another person’s life.
Performing along with Platt, The Honeycutters are Matt Smith (pedal steel and electric guitars), Rick Cooper (bass/vocals), Evan Martin (drums/vocals), and Kevin Williams (keys/vocals).
“Platt comes on like some sort of heavenly combination of Kim Richey and Lucinda Williams, using her incisive storytellers’ eye and irresistible way with a country-rock melody to create a jukebox worth of rough-hewn musical gems.” ~ Greenville Journal
