The Music – March 2018


It’s March in Coweta County, which brings us to the beginning of spring plans and fun events! Many of us remember music as a part of our lives growing up in the South, whether it was singing in the choir, picking on the back porch, out at a cookout, or an evening with friends at a local venue. I remember Savannah during the St. Pat’s parade being full of excitement and afterwards hearing music floating out and around you at every corner of the squares. In Newnan there will be events for all who live nearby or visit and always lots of great talent emerging on the scene. Explore music in our beautiful historic Newnan town and surrounding areas. Here’s our Local and Live Music calendar to get you started on your way to your own days and nights to remember. See you at a show soon!
