Valorie Miller performs at The Classic Wine Seller on Sept. 27

Local singer-songwriter Valorie Miller performs at The Classic Wine Seller in Waynesville on Friday, Sept. 27, from 7-10 p.m. The kitchen opens at 5:30 p.m.; reservations between 6 and 7 p.m. There is a $10 per person minimum.

From a press release:

Valorie Miller got her start as a musician in the late 1990s when the North Carolina Arts Council awarded her an Emerging Artist grant to make her first recording. Since then she has recorded independent CDs, garnered recognition from many prestigious venues and contests, and toured the United States and overseas. Valorie Miller was named a Kerrville New Folk Finalist, two-time top finalist in the North Carolina Songwriting Contest, and top finalist in the Great American Song Contest.

Miller has shared the stage with Merle Haggard, Jennifer Nettles, Wilco, and Patty Larkin. She has performed at The Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, The Bitter End in New York and The Continental Club in Austin, Texas—and virtually every place between. Nashville’s Grammy-winning songwriter, Larry Cordle, says, “Go see Valorie Miller and listen to her stark, wonderfully crafted stories of longing, escaping love’s clutches, love of her homeland in the North Carolina mountains… Valorie is a beautiful girl with great stories to tell in song and a beautiful voice to convey them with.” For more information visit
