The Birthplace of Country Music (BCM) proudly presents the husband and wife duo of Lauren and Jason Morrow as part of its RTE 23 Listening Room concert series, performing two shows on two nights in two unique venues.
On Friday, February 16 the couple will perform in the “acoustically perfect” Performance Theater at the Birthplace of Country Music Museum in Historic Downtown Bristol. One week later on Saturday, February 24 the Listening Room series returns to the intimate space at The Inn at Wise in Wise, Virginia.
Many will recognize Lauren and Jason from the critically acclaimed Americana group The Whiskey Gentry, a favorite act at the annual Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion music festival. The Atlanta-based band is a rootsy blend of alternative country, honky-tonk, and bluegrass highlighted by Lauren’s soaring, pristine vocals. The RTE 23 Listening Room series is the brain child of Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion Music Committee member David Stallard, who also helps organize the series and the RTE 23 Music Festival.
“I have been a fan of The Whiskey Gentry for years and have been lucky enough to have seen them live many times,” said Stallard. “At this year’s Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion, Jason and Lauren opened a set with a few songs by themselves. It was magical. I knew then and there that I wanted to hear a full show with just the two of them. I am really excited about these shows we have coming up!”
Tickets to The RTE Listening Room: Lauren and Jason Morrow shows on February 16 at the Birthplace of Country Music Museum and February 24 at the Inn at Wise are $10 in advance and $12 at the door. Doors open in both venues at 6:30 p.m. EST, music begins at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are on sale now at BirthplaceOfCountryMusic.org.
