Peace Center's Songwriter Series: Rissi Palmer & Maia Sharp

Peace Center Concert Hall, 300 South Main Street , Greenville, SC

The Peace Center’s Songwriters Series returns! Led by accomplished songwriter Maia Sharp, each concert brings a new guest singer-songwriter to the Upstate for a one-of-a-kind listening room experience in Genevieve’s theater lounge.

Maia Sharp has had her songs recorded by The Chicks, Bonnie Raitt, Trisha Yearwood, Keb’ Mo’, Cher, Lisa Loeb, Art Garfunkel and more. Through it all, Sharp has continued to record her own albums, including eight solo releases, one collaboration with Art Garfunkel and Buddy Mondlock and her duo project Roscoe & Etta with Anna Schultz, her writing and production partner. Each release has been embraced by press and radio, leading to extensive touring and appearances on Mountain Stage, World Café, NPR’s “All Things Considered,” and “The Today Show” to name a few. Her latest album Mercy Rising is out now featuring the single “Backburner.”

Rissi Palmer’s gift lies in reaching across all music boundaries. While she made her mark in country music, she is equally at home in R&B, bringing the entire spectrum of popular music to bear on her own sound – Southern Soul. In 2007, Palmer released her debut album, full of charting singles like “Country Girl,” “Hold On To Me,” and “No Air.” Since then, her musical career has taken her across the country, sharing stages with Taylor Swift, The Eagles, Chris Young and more as well as features on two Grammy-nominated albums. Palmer is a passionate voice for country artists of color and those who have been marginalized in mainstream country music. She hosts her own radio show and connects with fans and artists alike to work toward equality in the genre.



MerleFest, considered one of the premier music festivals in the country, serves as an annual homecoming for musicians and music fans. Held on the campus of Wilkes Community College in Wilkesboro, North Carolina, MerleFest was founded in 1988 in memory of the late Eddy Merle Watson, son of American music legend Doc Watson. MerleFest is a celebration of ‘traditional plus’ music, a unique mix of music based on the traditional, roots-oriented sounds of the Appalachian region, including bluegrass and old-time music, and expanded to include Americana, country, blues, rock and many other styles. The festival hosts numerous artists, performing on 13 stages during the course of the four-day event. The annual event has become the primary fundraiser for the WCC Foundation, funding scholarships, capital projects and other educational needs.

Lineup includes Emmylou Harris, Jerry Douglas, Sam Bush, and more.
