Sweet Sounds of Summer
by Mary Jane McCall
Listen closely and you can almost hear the last days of summer winding down in the gentle breezes that stir the air with a hint of the approaching autumn.
Don’t despair though, because there is still plenty of time to enjoy the sounds of summer during the popular concert series, Groovin’ On the Green, held every Friday night (rain or shine) at 6:30 P.M. at the Village Green on Frank Allen Road in Cashiers.
Bring a chair and your family and friends, and join in an evening of frolicking fun grooving the night away to some of the best music in the area. Dogs are welcome, but must be on a leash and under the control of the owner at all times. Pack a picnic supper or cooler or purchase food and beverages from one of vendors on site. Concerts are free, but donations are encouraged and appreciated.
The August concerts offer sounds for everyone. The Currys bring their diverse playlist to the stage on August 2, playing a little bit of everything from country to rock. Eat a Peach plays on August 9 and as their name suggests, they play classic rock. Americana music rules on August 16 with Americana Jones. Andrew Beam brings his country sounds to the stage on August 23. Rounding out the season on August 31 (note that this concert is on a Saturday) is blues legend Mac Arnold & A Plate Full O’Blues. Mac Arnold is true music royalty with a career spanning decades. His dynamic stage presence, incredible talent and soulful voice make for a truly unforgettable show.
August brings another remarkable season of Groovin’ concerts to a close so don’t miss the chance to enjoy the fun.
