About this event

SCOTT MILLER:

Recently inducted to the East Tennessee Writers Hall of Fame, fiery roots-rock singer/songwriter SCOTT MILLER returned to his native Virginia to tend the family farm while continuing to release and perform new music informed by that rural area, history, and Appalachia. The Staunton native first made a name for himself in the 90s as guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter with the superb pop/rock band the V-Roys before establishing himself as a gifted and eclectic solo artist, first with his ad hoc group the Commonwealth and later on his own. “[Miller combines] the emotional honesty and intelligence of a singer/songwriter with the swagger and enthusiasm of a rock & roller… a gifted and eclectic solo artist.” (AllMusic.com) As seen on tour with Patty Griffin, Robbie Fulks, Paul Thorn and American Aquarium.

MIC HARRISON:

I’d rather see Mic Harrison and the High Score perform than just about any band on the planet.

That’s not just because Mic and the guys have a couple of road cases full of great songs or they’re journeyman musicians who’ve been a part of some of the best bands to come out of the South. It’s because every time I go to a Mic Harrison and the High Score show, I know I’m going to walk in and see guys who look like they’re having so much fun on stage that it can’t help but spill out into the audience. I know I’m going to walk out at the end the night feeling better about the world with great rock ‘n’ roll and honky tonk songs playing over and over in my head.

Lead singer and rhythm guitarist Mic Harrison, lead guitarist Robbie Trosper, bassist Vance Hillard, guitarist Kevin Abernathy and drummer Don Coffey, Jr., have a chemistry that can only come from long term friendships and shared experiences. Harrison, who started his young adulthood working in a saw mill in Bradford, Tenn., a town so small it barely shows up on the map between Memphis and Jackson. He moved to Knoxville in the 1990s to become co-lead singer-songwriter (with Scott Miller) in The V-Roys, a band that defined “Americana” before it was genre. After that group split, he teamed with Trosper in the short-lived favorites The Faults and, later, teamed with Coffey in the now legendary power pop act Superdrag. When Superdrag ended, Harrison enlisted established Knoxville rock act The High Score to back up a tour and the chemistry was so good that the partnership never ended.

In the past 12 years or so, Mic and the guys have traveled the country, performing at festivals from Bonnaroo to Easyriders Rodeos, headlining bills from concert halls to the stickiest bars, opening shows for everyone from Billy Joe Shaver to Huey Lewis and the News to ZZ Top, and recording a terrific single with classic country singer Con Hunley.

I’ve been lucky enough to experience Mic Harrison and the High Score perform about 50 times. I expect to see them at least 50 more. In the world today, you need something that’s guaranteed to make you feel good that won’t hurt you – aside from a little soreness from swaying and dancing.

I consider Mic Harrison and the High Score mental health food.
