The Ramble, a gated community offering home sites and luxury homes in Asheville, kicked off their 2009 Summer Concert Series on Friday, June 19th, with alternative rock singer/songwriter Edwin McCain.
When you think of big names in the music world, you might also think that you have to travel to Raleigh, Atlanta, or New York to attend the best concerts. However, when you live in The Ramble at Biltmore Forest, you don’t even have to venture beyond the gates to enjoy a night of entertainment.
Best known for his hit song “I’ll Be,” Edwin McCain is a top 40 musician based out of Greenville, South Carolina. Playing 30 minutes longer than originally scheduled, he performed to an enthusiastic crowd of more than 700 private-invitation attendees who cheered him back on stage for an encore towards the end of the night.
The evening began with a pre-party in The Ramble’s unique Handmade House, hosted by WNC Magazine. The band also enjoyed a pre-concert dinner at 17 Croton Court, an available home from the Cottages of Greensward collection by Biltmore Farms Homes. The festivities continued after the concert, too, during a reception back at the Handmade House where party-goers enjoyed getting to know McCain as he answered questions, posed for photos, and signed autographs.
Ramble residents are looking forward to a summer full of exciting events, with the Concert Series a long-time favorite. Upcoming performances include The Chairmen of the Board on August 21 and local favorite Kat Williams on September 18.
The Ramble community thrives with residents from diverse backgrounds who are already enjoying the many amenities that it has to offer. And if the summer shows aren’t enough, residents have the benefit of convenient access to downtown Asheville, where music venues include the nationally-renowned Orange Peel, as well as the many local bars and restaurants that host bands on a nightly basis.
