100% LOCAL 


Fall 2019


Cooler weather, autumn mountain views, great food, and superb local talent combined for the 100% Local Concert in the Peterson Amphitheater back in 2019 at Tryon Fine Arts Center.

The celebration started at 6 PM, with a food truck from Mountain View BBQ, beer, wine, and concessions on site.

“This was the perfect opportunity for folks to come over after work and unwind for a while and enjoy these great fall evenings,” said TFAC Executive Director Marianne Carruth.

Performers included local bands F.L.O.W., who made their TFAC debut with soulful funk and classic covers, and Special Edition which featured Woody Cowan.  The groups featured some of the Foothills’ favorite artists and crossed a range of genres and styles.

The performers hailed from Tryon, Saluda, Landrum, Green Creek, or Columbus, and had a special connection to the region.

“TFAC regularly draws talent from around the country and across the globe, so we wanted to use the fall amphitheater series to celebrate the talented artists that are right in our backyard,” said Carruth.

The 2019-2020 Peterson Amphitheater Series was sponsored by the Plume Family Foundation.
