Bristol, Tenn.-Va. (Oct. 3, 2022) – The Birthplace of Country Music presents Seattle-based roots band Western Centuries in concert at 6 p.m. EDT, Oct. 14. The performance is part of the 1927 Concert Series. Catering, an open bar, and a meet-and-greet with the artist are included in the ticket price.
In an age when independence is idolized and every person seems to be seeking their own lone wolf career path, Western Centuries believes that way forward is better together. Collaboration, inspiration and mutual admiration are what the band cites as the heart of their project. Western Centuries celebrates their third album as a “band’s band” with the release of “Call the Captain” – a tongue-in-cheek reference to the band’s lack of hierarchy. Unsurprisingly for such an egalitarian outfit, the collection offers harsh criticism of dogmatic belief systems, all while leading by example with a unique, genre-defying sound.
The 1927 Society Concert Series is an intimate concert experience set in the “acoustically perfect” performance theater at the Birthplace of Country Music Museum. It’s more than a night of music, it is a very personal event with some of the most renowned roots music artists performing today. Guests are asked to arrive at 6 p.m. EDT to enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres and open bar (ages 21+ with valid ID) before the show, which begins at 7 p.m. EDT. The audience will have the opportunity to mingle with the band after the concert, and everything is included in the ticket price. Members of BCM’s 1927 Society are given access to exclusive ticket pre-sales to the series before they go on sale to the public.
Tickets to the 1927 Society Concert Series featuring Western Centuries are $100 and available for purchase online. For tickets and more information about becoming a member of the 1927 Society visit the Events page at BirthplaceOfCountryMusic.org.
