Published 11:01 pm Monday, July 8, 2019

The 20th Anniversary Season of Tryon’s most popular summer event – Summer Tracks – continues on Friday, July 12, with the Lauren Mitchell Band.  


Hailing from Central Florida, this band is known for their high-energy concoction of blues and soul. Like the legendary female singers she most admires – Etta James, Koko Taylor, Janis Joplin and Aretha Franklin – the band’s lead singer Lauren Mitchell gives audiences everything she has and then some. Her latest album “Desire”, was produced by Tony Braunagel (Bonnie Raitt, Taj Mahal, Robert Cray). Through a bold mix of original material, songs she hand-picked from the repertoires of her friends, and select covers, Mitchell tells a blues story that’s been a lifetime in the making
