Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks are bringing their Fireside Live show to Rocky Mount’s Harvester Performance Center on April 21st.
This will be a smaller version of their Tedeschi Trucks Band, the 12-piece blues, rock and soul juggernaut that’s played Roanoke a few times. The Harvester show will be in the style of the band’s 2021 “The Fireside Sessions,” with line-ups of four to eight band members, according to a Harvester press release. Expect at least a full rhythm section and keyboards behind guitarist/bandleader Trucks and vocalist/guitarist Tedeschi.
Singer/songwriter Raye Zaragoza will open the show.
Tickets are $150 reserved, $250 VIP, and $850 for VIP tables for four. Presale for subscribers to the Harvester email list begins Thursday at 10am, public sale begins Friday at 10am.
The TTB last played the Roanoke area to a sold out Jefferson Center in 2015, about two years after another sold out show at the same location. TTB played one of its earliest shows in Roanoke, at the 2010 Down by the River Festival.

Much has changed in the years that followed, including the death of keyboard/flute genius Kofi Burbridge. Other players came and went, but at the Ryman Auditorium concert in Nashville on February 25, the show was yet another one for the memory banks, with newer members Gabe Dixon (keyboards), Isaac Eady (drums) and Brandon Boone (bass). grown together deeply. Eady, like predecessor JJ Johnson, closed like Swiss watches with drummer Tyler “Falcon” Greenwell.
And Tedeschi, always with the gorgeous voice and Chicago-style guitar runs, did it all with a torn meniscus, the band revealed on their Facebook last week. A soldier, this one.
