Chase Away the Blues is bigger and better than ever at Tryon Fine Arts Center on March 3, 2018. The 7th annual concert features top blues artists from across the region on multiple venues for non-stop music and dancing all night long. Asheville-based “rock and soul” outfit The Broadcast headlines the entertainment, along with Citizen Mojo, The Shane Pruitt Band, Jim Peterman & Friends, Freddie Vanderford & Brandon Turner, and Bill & Tad’s Excellent Duo.

New for 2018, Chase Away the Blues features an expanded Patrons Lounge. TFAC turns an entire floor into a private blues club, with complimentary beverages, heavy hors d’oeuvres, and exclusive musical guests throughout the evening.

Chase Away the Blues is one of TFAC’s largest fundraisers, with proceeds supporting affordable fine arts experiences for the foothills community. 2018 Band Sponsors are Pacolet Milliken and Daltile. Additional sponsors include Tile Specialties, Gay & Scott Pleune, Sandy McCormack & Larry Wassong, and Open Road. Media sponsors are WSPA, WNCW, and The Tryon Daily Bulletin.
