The Rhythm & Brews concert in downtown Hendersonville drew a big crowd for the second time for an all-girl folk band from Asheville and the hot licks of the headliner, the Lefty Williams Band.
Main Street coordinator Lew Holloway said the second Rhythm & Brews appeared to have attracted a bigger crowd than the debut. Organizers added a second beer tent and doubled the number of volunteers for the event after the first concert drew bigger crowds than they expected.
Still, Holloway said indications are that the July Rhythm & Brews could be even bigger, with headliner Balsam Range already drawing a lot of interest. "People are already calling and asking, 'How much are Balsam Range tickets?'"
The Rhythm & Brews shows are free.
