Music Farm Columbia joins forces with AC Entertainment

The Music Farm Columbia is about a month away from opening but already has joined forces with a national concert producer and festival promoter in an effort to increase the variety of shows for Midlands music lovers.

AC Entertainment has entered into a partnership with Music Farm Charleston and Music Farm Columbia, which is set to open in September. The partnership is intended to expand the “breadth and depth of musical offerings at the two clubs as well as elsewhere in the area,” according to a news release from AC Entertainment.

“The growing cultural vitality we see in both Charleston and Columbia is inspiring,” said AC Entertainment founder and CEO Ashley Capps. “There’s tremendous potential here.”

Columbia concert-goers might already be familiar with AC Entertainment shows as the group has produced shows in the region for the Avett Brothers, John Legend, Steely Dan and Amos Lee. And AC Entertainment and Music Farm Productions aren’t strangers either.

“We’ve enjoyed a terrific working relationship with Marshall Lowe and his team at Music Farm Productions for several years,” Capps said. They have a stong commitment to excellence along with exciting ideas and vision, which align well with our culture at AC.”

The Music Farms will join other regional venues programmed and booked by AC Entertainment, including The Orange Peel in Asheville, N.C.; Marathon Music Works in Nashville, Tennessee; and Track 29 in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

“We are extremely excited to be entering into this next stage of our relationship with AC Entertainment and look forward to combining our efforts to produce more quality shows in the Carolinas and the Southeastern United States,” Lowe said.
