Awendaw Preview: Hayes Carll
You — you look like you could use a quick trip outta Dodge. Maybe you’ve been meaning to take in a little summer music under the stars but one of those big outdoor festivals is too much: time, money, gas! Still, a chance to kick back in the green grass and make some new friends sounds good.
Here’s the ticket for you. Presented by Suncoast Promotions, Texas singer/songwriter Hayes Carll will do a special outdoor show on Sunday at a barn up in Awendaw. He hasn’t been in town for a couple of years, and he’s got a tasty new album out titled Trouble in Mind (Lost Highway). With songs like “Drunken Poet’s Dream” and “She Left Me for Jesus,” you’ll think of Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark. Far out! Well … not that far at all.
Awendaw Green is located on Highway 17 in Awendaw, just past the Seewee Outpost, next to Hidden Ponds Nursery. Concertgoers are encouraged to bring chairs, blankets, and coolers (no bottles, please). Local songwriter Cary Ann Hearst will kick things off. Gates open at 5 p.m. Sun., July 20. $20 ($15 adv.), (843) 568-6728
