The Music – February 2018
The MUSIC Local and Live…by Kris Youmans
We’re still in the beginning stages of the music scene for 2018 and Americana, Blues, Roots, Bluegrass, Country & Jazz , along with alternatives of all the genres are being performed on the stages of notable venues and tucked away in the corners of pubs, restaurants and coffee houses in Coweta County and surrounding areas. Conversations are buzzing about exciting new local talent and established bands we’ve heard throughout the month of January.
