The mountain rock band Cullowhee, named for the community where its sound was born, will reunite for a concert at 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 17, in the Grandroom of A.K. Hinds University Center.

The band was formed in the 1970s as a folk trio and evolved into a six-man mountain rock band featuring former WCU students Terry Edwards, Mike Clark, Sandy Flynn and Thom Jenkins, as well as Fred “Rick” Hubbard and Woody Jenkins.

Members wrote and performed music around the world including “Bring Back the Magic,” “Old Man of Sylva” and “Peace on the Mountain.” Flynn said the group chose the name Cullowhee because they were proud of their home.
