PERRY COUNTY’S MUSIC ON MAIN STREET IS ALL SET TO GO FOR 2013
Free shows to kick off May 25
The Town of Linden, The City of Lobelville and the Perry County Mayor’s office remind everyone that Perry County’s Music on Main Street, the all-Summer, and every-Saturday-night concert series, is back again for its fourth year, alternating from week-to-week again, between Linden and Lobelville.
The concerts kick off on the Perry County Courthouse Square, Saturday night, May 25, 2013, at 7:30 PM, with blues harmonica wizard ‘Chicago Charlie’ Fink, American Idol - Season 9 finalist Haeley Vaughn, 80’s country hit-maker Joe Sun, beach music king Clifford Curry, Hammond B-3 organist Moe Denham, and others, for an expanded Memorial Day weekend kickoff concert in Linden.
And every Saturday night this Summer, each weekend in either Linden or Lobelville at 7:30 PM, the music will feature a vast array of musical styles and performances, including Nashville Jazz Workshop’s Evan Cobb, a Johnny Cash tribute with sister and brother-in-law Joanne Cash and Dr. Harry Yates, singer/songwriter and CBS’s Survivor: South Pacific finalist Whitney Duncan, music festival workhorses Blue Mother Tupelo, all-fun, all-girl band The Granny Whites, dobro expert Mike Webb, country crooner T. Graham Brown, Nashville country newcomers Brent Cobb, Brinley Addington, Chancie Neal, Chris Cavanaugh, Brent Anderson, Briana Tyson and Doug McCormick, harpist Deanna Loveland, Nashville’s queen of the blues Marion James, and many others.
Centerville, Tennessee’s WNKX “KIX 96.7” FM, will again broadcast live, the Perry County concert’s first full-hour. The Department of Veteran Affairs will have a US military veteran assigned to start every concert with a few words and the Pledge of Allegiance.
The Lobelville shows will again happen at Main Street Music Park, right next to the Lobelville City Hall & Library. Linden’s concerts will happen in front of the Perry County Courthouse on Linden’s refurbished Courthouse Square.
All shows are “rain or shine”, with nearby stand-by indoor locations, in the event of any threatening weather. All of these summer-long, outdoor concerts will again be free admission.
“We know that on that holiday weekend, with a lot of picnics and activities, we’ll get started at 7:30 PM, like we always do, but so everyone has a chance to come out and catch part of the show, we’ll go on until around 10:30 PM on May 25th, explained Linden Mayor Jim Azbill. “It’s a special Memorial Day weekend kickoff to a Summer of great music we’ve got lined up.”
