From staff reports 

Charleston-born and Greenville-based recording artist Edwin McCain will perform a benefit concert on John Paul II Catholic School’s campus Saturday, Nov. 6 during his 2021 tour. 

McCain found top-40 success on the Billboard charts in the late 1990s with I’ll Be (No. 5, 1998) and I Could Not Ask For More (No. 37, 1999), and his debut single Solitude featuring Darius Rucker reached No. 25 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock chart in 1995. 

Local band Twin Roots, with lead singer and JPII performing arts teacher Ava Nixon, will kick off the evening events, followed by The Nice Guys before McCain takes the stage. 

Called the “great American romantic” by the New York Times, McCain has built an enviable career over the past 20 years with the year-round touring schedule of a tireless troubadour. 

The concert is outdoors and is open to the public. Tickets ($50-$75) and parking passes ($20) are available on the school’s website at https://bit.ly/3EVYYhh. 

Concert goers are encouraged to bring chairs and blankets. Multiple area food trucks will be on site to serve up their unique offerings. 

The JPII grounds will open at 4 p.m. The concerts begin at 5 p.m. McCain is expected to take the stage around 8 p.m.
