The Music – April 2018


THE MUSIC Local & Live 

Just returned from a trip to Northern Ireland where there’s proof music is a common bond between all of us! It was a joy to hear traditional Irish tunes, rock & roll, blues, alternative & some of the best traditional country music including classics from George Jones. For this month’s music calendar here in Coweta County, all genres are highlighted and all levels of musicians and songwriters are featured. Thank you for supporting your local music scene by attending a show and sharing your favorite music. You are a source of inspiration to these artists and one of the main reasons they love what they do. See you out at a show soon!
