Live Music at 5506′ with Sweet Sweet

June 16, 2018 @ 2:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Live Music at 5506′ with Sweet Sweet

The coolest mountaintop bar east of the Rockies is the place to catch live music every Saturday between June 2 and Sept. 1. The resort’s summer music series combines great bands, cool beverages and spectacular panoramic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Concerts start at 2:30 p.m. each Saturday.

South Carolina based indie folk/Americana duo Jeremy Dunham and Kerrine Gifford doubled down and dubbed themselves “Sweet Sweet” to describe the fresh and inviting way they blend the elegance and mood of her cello with the rustic roots of his acoustic guitar. Those sounds, combined with foot driven percussion textures that range from gentle to raucous, are the foundation behind the singer-songwriters’ gorgeous lead and harmony vocals – and simple yet emotionally hard hitting songs filled with heartfelt tales and whimsical Southern Charm. The two capture their innate chemistry perfectly in the two word title of their debut EP In Tandem.

Jeremy and Kerrine, both transplants from the Northeast who have lived in Myrtle Beach for over a decade, bring unique individual histories to their group dynamic. As a kid, Jeremy remembers “stealing” his dad’s guitar and playing it while he was at work. When he graduated high school, he was already in a working band – and he has spent the last few decades playing in numerous groups “from the school of hard rock.” Kerrine started playing cello in middle school and studied cello performance at Coastal Carolina University. She joined the choir in college but until joining forces with Jeremy had never mastered the art of playing her instrument and vocalizing at the same time.

The 5506′ Skybar is a family friendly environment.  The concerts themselves are free, however the only way to access 5506′ is by shuttle.  There is no parking and drop off location at 5506′.  All shuttle rides are $1.00 per person.

Our summer concert series is held out doors on the deck of our 5506′ Skybar. In the event of inclement weather, the events will be moved to the Beech Mountain Brewing Company.
