Y’all ready for some Bluegrass Music for your Fourth of July weekend? Bluestastic Fangrass will take the stage at Burr Park at 7:30 PM on Friday, July 6th for the Downtown Dalton Summer Music Series. If you haven’t been to one of our Music Series Concerts, you should really make it over to Dalton and check it out. Burr Park is located at 101 South Hamilton Street right in the heart of Downtown Dalton. Bring some chairs or blankets and enjoy the live music.
Instrumental prowess showcases both traditional and original material based in bluegrass, swing, & swampy blues. From haunting to barn-burning, the show features Lou’s incredible dobro and slide talents plus a band of players that can go there with him. Lou is a 30+ year veteran of the bluegrass stage, having toured with such nationally known acts as James Monroe & the Midnight Ramblers and Blue Moon Rising. Wamp’s band of hot pickers also includes Brad Frazier on lilting lead vocals and guitar, the legendary Jim Pankey on banjo, amazingly talented fiddle champ Meredith Goins, 3-time National Flatpicking Champion Roy Curry on lead guitar, and Lynn Wamp rockin’ the bass. It’s a slightly dyslexic look at Fantastic Bluegrass. And if it’s true “there’s no money above the fourth fret” then these guys are bound for the poorhouse, but it’ll be a wild ride!
The Downtown Dalton Development Authority will be selling several brands of Beer, including two IPA’s, as well as bottled water. Outside alcohol is not permitted. However, outside food and non-alcoholic beverages are permitted.
Since the concert doesn’t start until 7:30 PM, there’s plenty of time to grab some dinner downtown at one of the several dining establishments. You can follow this link for a complete list of Downtown dining options.
The Downtown Dalton Summer Music series is a FREE live Music event sponsored by BB&T Bank, BB&T Insurance, the Dalton Convention & Visitors Bureau, The Downtown Dalton Development Authority, The Community Foundation of NWGA and the Creative Arts Guild.
