Big Sound Harbor produces a big sound with horns, keys, and rippin’ electric guitars. Band leader and lead singer Dulci Ellenberger adds to the mix with a voice that combines elements of Motown, folk and soul. The band — whose members also play in the famed Holy Ghost Tent Revival — brings their big sound to original works, as well as covers that pay homage to musicians including Aretha Franklin and Sharon Jones.

Big Sound Harbor features Dulci Ellenberger (vocals, rhythm guitar), Kevin Williams (bass), Ross Montsinger (drums), Stephen Murray (Trumpet, keys), Matt Martin (lead guitar), Hank Widmer (trombone, clarinet) and Charlie Humphrey (trumpet, keys).

All Summer Tracks concerts are free, though a voluntary donation at the gate is encouraged. Audience donations, along with the presenting sponsorship of New View Realty; Friday’s concert sponsor, Jerry Thomas Promotions/Productions; and many local businesses and individuals make the shows possible. 

Katie D’s N.Y. Bagels & Deli will sell a variety of slider sandwiches, pimento cheese and crackers, plus a variety of desserts including brownies, cookies and ice cream. Water and soft drinks will be for sale; alcohol is allowed in the park but will not be sold on the grounds. 

Summer Tracks is produced by the town of Tryon, in affiliation with Peter Eisenbrown, of Blockparty Productions. For more information about Summer Tracks and the performers, visit
