PineCone audiences first met Dan when he was playing guitar and mandolin for Alison Krauss and Union Station. The Dan Tyminski Band is Maddie Denton (fiddle), Jason Davis (banjo), Grace Davis (bass) and Gaven Largent (dobro).

SOLD OUT – Friday March 1, 2024 – Balsam Range – AJ Fletcher Theater

Orchestra: $50 General / $45 Member Price

Balcony: $45 General / $40 Member Price

Rear: $18

Balsam Range is a PineCone favorite. They’ve played in nearly every setting we’ve got, from the festival mainstage and Down Home Concert series to pick-up sessions in the hotel lobby during World of Bluegrass. As a band, they are quintessentially North Carolina.

They make their home in Haywood County, North Carolina. It’s a close-knit community that sits in between the Great Smoky Mountains and the Blue Ridge Mountains. That experience comes out in their music and songwriting. Family, faith, work and home are common themes.

You can see photos from their PineCone shows over the years here.

Friday April 5, 2024 – Bella White – AJ Fletcher Theater

Orchestra: $45 General / $40 Member Price

Balcony: $40 General / $35 Member Price

Rear: $18

Bella White is a truly original new voice in songwriting. She weaves emotionally rich stories with seemingly simple melodies to create an undeniable magic. Her new song “Burn Me Once” is featured on the Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes soundtrack alongside bluegrass luminaries Billy Strings, Molly Tuttle and Sierra Ferrell. 

Although she hails from the Canadian city of Calgary, the 22-year-old singer/multi-instrumentalist grew up on the classic country and old-time music she first discovered thanks to her father, a Virginia native who played in bluegrass bands all throughout her childhood. On her debut album Just Like Leaving, White balances her old-soul musicality with a lyrical perspective that’s entirely of-the-moment, embracing an intense self-awareness as she documents her coming-of-age in real-time. “I was very young when I wrote this album,” says the Victoria, BC-based artist. “All of these songs came from processing my feelings right as I was experiencing certain things for the first time in my life.”

The evening opens with a set from singer/songwriter Ana Egge. Lucinda Williams called Ana “…the folk Nina Simone.” Egge has consistently garnered critical praise for her music, and has worked with producers Steve Earle, Joel Plaskett, Alec Spiegelman, and Stewart Lerman and recorded with Billy Strings, Anais Mitchell and Iris DeMent.
