‘Concert On The Green’ series begins in Madison this week
By Malin Dartnell
Welcome to summer in Madison: the skies are blue, flowers are blooming and music is playing for everyone to hear. Every year, Madison Main Street, along with the James Madison Inn & Conference Center, hosts a summer concert series "On the Green" behind Town 220. These concerts are free to the public and will be held the second and fourth Thursdays of June and July. Each concert features a different set of artists. The first concert, to be held Thursday, June 12, will feature local bluegrass/country artists Rambling Mountain and Emily Pritchett. The next concert, Thursday, June 26, will celebrate summer by highlighting summertime jazz artists.
The public is invited to bring blankets, lawn chairs, coolers and dinner or to reserve tables and chairs for eight through Ann Huff at the City Hall by calling (706) 342-1251, Ext 206. This event will be held at the new Town Park in the future, but for now, park behind Madison Hardware or at Madison Markets, and feel free to wander down the Round Bowl Springs pathway to the green behind Town 220. The concerts will begin just as the evening begins to cool off at 7 p.m. and will last until 9 p.m.
So, gather up your friends, your kids, a picnic basket and blanket and make plans to begin, or to continue, a summer tradition by attending the summer concert series on the green.
