This all-female country group brings their unique sound to Irmo
Named after a haunting Bob Dylan song, Farewell Angelina is an all-female country group with four powerhouse vocalists, dynamic songwriters, and accomplished multi-instrumentalists. Their stellar blend of heart-stopping harmonies over blazing double violins and guitars has earned them widespread praise. These talented musicians will play at Harbison Theatre at Midlands Technical College on Friday, February 28, 2020 at 7:30 PM.
A band of longtime friends, Nicole Witt, Andrea Young, Lisa Torres, and Ashley Gearing all met pursuing their dreams in Nashville, TN. Each deeply respected and admired one another while they were building successful solo careers, touring and recording with top artists, and writing songs for some of country music’s biggest stars. When they heard the undeniable magic of their voices together for the first time, they couldn’t wait to take their show on the road. Major opportunities soon followed, including singing the National Anthem for Thursday Night Football, The Unbridled Eve Gala for the Kentucky Derby, the ACM All-Star Jam, and the Albisguetli Schutzenhaus Festival in Switzerland.
Roughstock calls them a “superstar act” with “killer songs.” Rolling Stone says, “wickedly smart songwriting delivered with a healthy dash of sass... deft playing... into one sonic knockout punch.”
Farewell Angelina’s chemistry lives in watching each other shine, and most of all, creating moments every night with country music fans. The relationship they share with their fans won them the fan-voted “Hot Seat” spot of the Taste of Country 2017 “RISERS” Program, and they’ve also been named among Rolling Stone’s “New Artists You Need To Know,” and Roughstock’s “Ones to Watch.” The girls have opened shows for Kenny Chesney, Old Dominion, Frankie Ballard, Jake Owen, Billy Currington, Maroon 5, and Trace Adkins. They also joined the Bacon Brothers (Kevin and Michael) as the opening act on many dates of their last two summer tours.
“We are thrilled to host these ladies in South Carolina and bring their amazing sound to our stage,” says Kristin Cobb, Executive Director of HT@MTC. “We can’t wait to showcase their music in the Midlands and are looking forward to a fabulously fun night.”
