Corey Harper and Wild Rivers stopped by Asheville, North Carolina at The Grey Eagle on February 10, 2022 and absoutely wowed the crowd.
Corey is from Portland, Oregon and blends genres including acoustic, folk, and country. Although Corey wasn’t joined by a band, he captivated the audience as soon as he stepped on stage. With emotion you could feel, lyrics you could relate to, and an amazing guitar (and harmonica) solo, what more could you ask for. Corey thanked the crowd for coming, “If you guys have known about my music for a long time but never maybe never seen me before it’s an absolute honor that you’re here. I can’t wait to share it with you.” He debuted some unreleased songs off his upcoming album, sang some of his older songs, and performed his duet “Almost” with Devan from Wild Rivers.
