Orchard Session Series
The magical trilogy of music, the outdoors and the mountains come together once again at The Farm at Old Edwards on October 29.
From 6 to 8 P.M., in that wondrous interlude between the sun settling and the moon ascending, singer-songwriter-recording artist Mike Kinnebrew will perform under the boughs in the blissful Orchard setting. Even the most exacting country-music fans will find themselves repeatedly delighted by the achingly intense songs he writes that tell the story of his heart.
Kinnebrew’s musical gifts – much more than just the “three chords and the truth” that is often attributed to country music – have grabbed the ears of fans and critics from Atlanta to Macon to Highlands and Nashville’s Smoakstack Studio, where he recorded his first album. Mike packs his lyrics with stories of life and love, tales that are relatable and familiar.
As Mathew Perryman Jones has said, “Mike Kinnebrew has a unique way of pulling people into his songs, through his gently demanding voice and melodies, to speak a little truth to you.”
The festivities, which also includes light bites and a cash bar, is just $10 and always attracts a sold-out audience.
Sorry, no advance tickets. Limited seating is available and taking a seat in the grass is certainly welcome.
The sessions will move indoors to the new Orchard House in the event of rain. Due to Covid 19 circumstances, dates are subject to change with little to no notice. If driving to specifically see the performance, please call (828) 787-2635 or (828) 787-2916 to confirm if the show will go on.

Noteworthy in this year’s Orchard Session series was the June performance by artist Erik Baker. Renamed “Concert for a Cause,” the evening sold out, raising urgently needed monies for the Highlands Food Pantry. As Director Marty Rosenfield noted, because Macon County is one of the state’s poorest counties, with food scarcity affecting one out of five families, “the Pantry is struggling for funds, we are burning for groceries and we are reaching out to local farmers and looking hard for product in order to fill our needs.”
