Our award-winning Fayetteville Public Library is hosting tons of events this summer and they just started the ever-popular Sunday Mountain Street Stage Summer Music Series.
From 2-4 p.m. on Sundays in June and July, none of the librarians at FPL will be saying Shhhhhhhh because the library will be rockin’! All concerts are free and open to the public.
This will be an eclectic mix of music and will include: blues, jazz, folk, bluegrass, r&b, funk, rock’n’roll, Americana, and much more.
You’ll get a chance to hear some of the area’s most talented musicians as well as a dynamic acoustic trio with roots in Fayetteville who have criss-crossed the country performing, and a high energy r&b group visiting here from the Crescent City.
Dawn Cate & The Rhythm Kings kicked everything off last Sunday.
