Reflecting the ever-changing culture of western North Carolina, Unspoken Tradition’s new and original bluegrass is impassioned and nostalgic, hard-driving and sincere. The band has earned a fervent following in the Southeast, selling out shows in Asheville, as well as the legendary Station Inn in Nashville, Tenn. Their 2019 release from Mountain Home Music Co., Myths We Tell Our Young, debuted at #5 on Billboard Bluegrass charts and has seen five top-charting radio singles, including a #1 spot on the Bluegrass Today chart for “Dark Side of the Mountain.”

The music journal No Depression wrote of the band’s latest album, Imaginary Lines (June 2022), “Without straying from their Carolina bluegrass roots, the vocal, lyrical and instrumental variety on the new album is bound to appeal to fans of folk, Americana and traditional country music.” 

Their latest single, “Moments” (May 2023), is available on most streaming platforms. The band features Audie McGinnis (guitar and vocals), Ty Gilpin (mandolin and vocals), Tim Gardner (fiddle and vocals), Sav Sankaram (bass and vocals) and Zane McGinnis (banjo).

New View Realty of Tryon is Summer Tracks’ 23rd Season Presenting Sponsor. This evening’s concert sponsors are The Purple Onion and Heartwood Gallery. A full schedule including performers bios and photos can be found at summertracks.com.

All shows begin at 7 p.m. In case of rain, concerts will move across the street inside Tryon Fire Dept. Manzolina’s On Wheels Eatery will be selling hotdogs, veggie dogs, sandwich wraps, ice cream, snacks, water and soft drinks. Alcohol consumption is allowed in the park but is not for sale. Please remember, no dogs are allowed. Audience donations, along with many local business and individual sponsors, make these shows possible.
