Summer Breeze at Embrace

Summer Breeze concert

We’ve had musical performances in June and July at the Embrace sculpture, and this concert wraps up the summer music season! MoRA is excited to welcome back singer-songwriter, Caleb Wolfe, a homegrown talent who fostered his love of music in church pews and around campfires (more below).

Grab a cold bev from Edge City Brewery. Pack a picnic or dine on good eats from Hawthorne’s Pizza, Poppycox food truck, and Buck’s Ice Cream Truck. It’s going to be a great night with neighbors and friends. MoRA’s Summer Breeze is a free community event, open to everyone.

More about Caleb

Caleb’s first single, “Slow Dancing In A Parking Lot” was released in July 2011. After putting his music career on hold to serve in the U.S. Navy, Caleb stormed back with a new single, “Small Town Country Love,” a country-rock anthem that won Best Country Video at the Carolina Music Awards in 2020! His unique sound has traces of folk and alternative favorites from the late 90’s, while his lyrical and vocal authenticity make his music feel both original and familiar.
