On March 13, 2017, Holly Bowling performed the first “official” concert held at 5 Points Music Sanctuary. During a nearly 2 1/2 hour performance, Holly captivated the audience with classically composed versions of songs from the Grateful Dead and Phish. Guests from far and wide traveled to hear, see, feel, and share in the power of sound with us and helped kick off a movement that is growing stronger with each day, with each event, with each of our Foundation’s programs and initiatives.


On Tuesday, September 24, 2019, Holly returns for her 4th appearance at the Sanctuary, following her last time here with Ghost Light (4.19.18), one of the best jam bands on the scene today. She has since shared the stage with some of the biggest names in the industry including Phil Lesh, Bob Weir, Page McConnell, Warren Haynes, John Scofield, Ivan Neville, Steve Kimock, Oteil Burbridge, Dave Schools, Branford Marsalis, Greensky Bluegrass and many others.

For us, this event represents a continuation of special relationship with one of our favorite performers. In the nearly 2.5+ years since opening our doors, we have had the honor of hosting a wide variety of musicians and artists from around the world. Upon their first visits, many are unaware of the work we do at 5 Points Music. Upon arrival, we welcome them by sharing our story. We talk about our hearing loss advocacy efforts and our music therapy programs and further share our broader emphasis on celebrating the simple moments that we have with each other and recognize the power that they have.

Holly was the first artist beyond our region to ever hear our story. With each visit back, she helps to reinforce the meaning of our message and further contributes to moments that have made 5 Points Music Sanctuary one of the most talked about music venues on the East coast. With each event here, a moment is shared. For each moment shared, another chapter in the story of 5 Points Music is created. With each chapter, the story of 5 Points Music spreads to artists and audiences far and wide. Through each telling of that story, we are reinforcing the idea that the power of sound is about more than what we hear. It’s also about what we see, what we feel, and what we share together.

Purchase your tickets to see, hear, feel, and share in the power of Holly Bowling and be part of another amazing chapter in the story of 5 Points Music!
