Ashe County Arts Council Presents Fridays in the Park Concert Series
May 21, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Arts Council programming returns with Fridays in the Park Concert Series at Ashe Park. Every third Friday, May-August, the outdoor concerts will feature well-known local and regional musicians. The concerts are free and start at 7:00 pm. The outdoor concerts will have a limited audience and participants must sign up in advance at www.ashecountyarts.org.
The May 21 concert will feature Liam Purcell and Cane Mill Road. Growing up in Deep Gap just down the road from Doc Watson, Liam Purcell leads Cane Mill Road as they rock the traditional bluegrass standards they were raised on, yet boldly write original music with roots in the fertile grounds of bluegrass, old-time and Americana.
In partnership with Ashe County Parks and Recreation, the Arts Council will be following COVID-19 protocols with a limited audience, therefore the concerts will require registration signups. The concerts will be pod-based and you will be asked to remain inside your designated area. You may have up to six people in your area and your group must be six feet from the next group. Masks are required outside your pod and must be worn when interacting with volunteers and persons outside your group. Pods spots may be chosen upon arrival on a first come, first served basis.
No alcohol. Bottled drinks and packaged food only. Provide your own lawn chair. No high-back chairs, lounge chairs or chairs with attachments (foot rests, tables, umbrellas) allowed. No canopies or tents.
Fridays in the Park Concert Series is supported by the Ashe County Bluegrass and Old-Time Fiddlers Convention and Ashe County Parks and Recreation and is sponsored by the Ashe Civic Center and the Ashe County Arts Council. Registration is available at www.ashecountyarts.org.
