Arts & Entertainment Artists Series continues at Highlands PAC

Chris and Taylor MalpassThe Malpass Brothers' momentum is growing as fast as their sideburns. They're as authentic as country ham and red-eye gravy and things just don't get much better than that. North Carolina natives, the Malpass Brothers – Chris, 27 and Taylor, 23 – are the real deal in traditional country music.

Touring as the opening act for music legend Merle Haggard has broadened their introduction to audiences across America. They've made festival appearances in Northern Ireland and The Shetland Islands, and the title cut video from their album "Memory That Bad" topped the chart at number seven in CMT’s Pure Country.

Gifted musicians and songwriters, the brothers have recorded three gospel and three country music projects, and have shared the stage with artists such as Ray Price, Willie Nelson, Rhonda Vincent, Marty Stuart, Doc Watson and more. Chris and Taylor Malpass were born to be on stage, promoting the work and music of artists they treasure while creating new music and making their own mark in the lineage of a rich cultural heritage.

“Music is what we love and it's what we do. Traditional country music is the heart and soul of what makes us who we are,” say the Malpass Brothers.

The Malpass Brothers will be performing Saturday, March 29, at 7:30 p.m. at the Highlands Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $20 and are available online at or by calling (828)526-9047.
