NEW PHILADELPHIA -- Rock powerhouse Red Wanting Blue will perform in concert on Sept. 6 at 7:30 p.m. at the Performing Arts Center at Kent State University at Tuscarawas.
Led by singer-songwriter Scott Terry, Red Wanting Blue is based in Columbus, but might as well be America's local band. For years, the group had been hiding in plain sight as Terry went about logging thousands of miles on the road throughout the nation's heartland, making fans the hard way - one at a time. Terry's passionate and poetic songs, anchored by his powerful baritone, are the kind of tunes that could only have been written by a man who has lived this kind of life on the road.
Other band members include Mark McCullough (bass guitar, vocals), Greg Rahm (keys, guitars, organ, vocals), Eric Hall Jr. (guitars, lap steel, mandolin, banjo, vocals) and Dean Anshutz (drums, percussion, glockenspiel) With only the aid of word of mouth, hard work and perseverance, Red Wanting Blue has established an exceedingly loyal following in and around the Midwest where the band regularly fills clubs normally reserved for bigger names. In July, they performed on The Late Show with David Letterman.
Tickets for Red Wanting Blue are $10 general admission and $5 for Kent State University students. Tickets can be purchased now at the Performing Arts Center box office, online at www.tusc.kent.edu/pac or by calling 330-308-6400. The box office is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
