Steve Sutton Memorial Benefit Concert

Steve Sutton Memorial Benefit Concert

When Haywood County native and stellar banjo player Steve Sutton died unexpectedly in 2017, he left a legacy of great music and great mentoring. His career carried him to stages around the world, including a stint on the Grand Ole Opry, and to many awards. At home, he was a member of the Whitewater Bluegrass Co., and he was well known for his kindnesses in lifting up aspiring musicians. The Annual Steve Sutton Benefit Concert raises money for both the International Bluegrass Music Association Trust Fund and for a scholarship at Waynesville’s Tuscola High School.

Join us on Sunday, March 8, for music, an auction of music memorabilia (see below), supper and storytelling. Performers will include: The Darren Nicholson Band, Crowe Bros., Mark Bumgarner, Marc Pruett, Hazel Creek, Bill Kaman, Mike Hunter, Malcolm Holcombe and Whitewater Bluegrass Co.

Gathering with a Steve Sutton storytelling will follow, with supper available for purchase.

Tickets $35 in advance, $40 at the door. Dinner: $12.
