"The Carolina Theatre is pleased to announce a new concert venture in The Crown at the Carolina: The Emerging Artists Series. The series will begin on March 30 with the band Bombadil, followed by The Barefoot Movement on May 4, with Rising Appalachia closing out the first season of the series on June 18.

The Emerging Artists Series was designed to introduce a new audience to the Carolina, while offering fresh entertainment for the theatre’s fan base. By highlighting groups on-the-rise from across a range of genres, the Emerging Artists Series will bring these acts into the spotlight of the intimate 200-seat Crown, which once housed the historic theatre’s original sign shop. The goal will be to have these young artists return to the stage one day to fill the Carolina’s auditorium.

The Emerging Artists Series is sponsored by Eugenia and Barry Frank. “We believe that an integral part of the Carolina Theatre’s future is in engaging these exciting young musicians and their audiences,” says Eugenia Leggett-Frank. “We’re thrilled to be a part of that future.”
