Help Us Celebrate Our New Season This Thursday

The Clayton Center’s fifth annual Palladian Series Preview and Presale party is this Thursday, August 8. A $10 ticket will buy you an evening out AND the chance to purchase individual tickets to shows in the season before they go on sale to the general public.

North Carolina duo Violet Bell will headline the event with a 7:30 PM concert.

Violet Bell weaves roots, soul, psychedelic and classical music into a lush, wild soundscape. On stage and in the studio, the North Carolina duo of Lizzy Ross (guitar, banjo, vocals) and Omar Ruiz-Lopez (violin, viola, cello, guitar, mandolin, vocals) share magnetic chemistry. The two have played more than 300 shows from Montreal to Miami in just over two years, honing the fiery intimacy of their live show and building a steadily growing fan base.

Tickets to Preview party are available here. Or, you can call or come by the box office. Tickets will be available at the door Thursday evening.

Join Chicks With Hits For An Acoustic Guitar Pull

Terri Clark, Pam Tillis and Suzy Bogguss sit down in Clayton for a good, old-fashioned acoustic guitar pull at The Clayton Center on Thursday, October 19, at 8 PM. The Chicks With Hits bring us their best-loved songs from their legendary careers.

You might be asking, “What’s a guitar pull?” The guitar pull is a southern tradition where a small group of musicians sits around and takes turns playing songs on a guitar. The “pull” part comes from the assumption that there was only one guitar among the group, so one may have to “pull” it away from another musician to get a turn.

It’s not likely that these Nashville stars will be pulling guitars from one another, but they will be pulling out all the stops to bring us an entertaining and memorable show. We expect tickets for this show to sell quickly, so get yours early. Tickets go on sale this Wednesday, September 6, at 10 AM.
