Summer music series

The Front Porch Bookstore will be hosting a summer music series throughout the summer. Bring your blankets, chairs, snacks, and your enthusiasm for good music. Relax on the front lawn of the Front Porch Book Store as popular local musicians perform for your listening pleasure. The artists are performing for free - tips or donations are encouraged. Artists may also have items for sale. Performances are every Saturday June 5th thru Aug. 28th at 6pm. No performances on June 26th or July 3rd.
Schedule for June:
June 5 - North Georgia Bluegrass Band - featuring Chris White on lead guitar and lead vocals; Larry 'Mule' Saye on rhythm guitar; Antoon Speters on mandolin, baritone and lead vocals; Rich Born on banjo and vocals; and Phyllis Walls on bass. Have a listen over here:


June 12 - Poncho Magic - featuring April McDowell, Dave Martin, Marla Getford, and AJ Griffin. They have wowed audiences with incorrigibly twangy, yet eclectic sets and big, Carter-esque vocal harmonies. With all members hailing from the South, Poncho Magic excels at rockabilly, honky tonk, pop country, and cow punk; however forays into pop, funk, dance, and good ol' hard rock are business as usual in this band's repertoire.www.myspace.com/ponchomagic

June 19 - Dodd Ferrelle - "Athens musician and songsmith Dodd Ferrelle charges up his dark Americana with a generous influx of rock and power-pop electricity on his new platter, Lonely Parades, the album stands as Ferrelle's strongest batch of songs to date." - Jeff Clark, Stomp & Stammer, April 2009


The Front Porch Bookstore is located at 102 Marigold Lane in Winterville.
