Tucked Away Music Festival takes place Oct. 26


From Special Reports

One of the most unique music events around – Tucked Away Music Festival – returns to downtown Newnan on Saturday, Oct. 26.

Five featured bands will perform on various stages placed in public parking lots and alleyways throughout downtown as each stage will represent a different genre. This free admission festival starts at 2 p.m. and the event ends at 7 p.m.

Shops and restaurants will be open during the festival and vendors will fill Perry Street along with live football hosted by AT&T.

Featured Bands of the Music Festival include:

3rd Shift – A four-piece cover band from south metro Atlanta, a few of the members have been playing together over 15 years. They play 60s, 70s, 80s, current rock and pop hits along with some forgotten B-side gems.

Frankie’s Blues Mission – As the name implies, these gentlemen are on a mission: Their purpose is to present the blues, jazz, R&B and zydeco in the best of the African-American tradition with all the energy they can muster.

Line Creek Bluegrass – Line Creek was born several years ago after years of playing rock, folk, and gospel music. Their musical tastes had matured to the point that bluegrass was the natural culmination of years of experience. The resulting music is a blend of bluegrass and folk in which you will hear rich vocal harmonies and tasty instrumentation; bluegrass gospel as well as classics, “grassified” rock tunes as well as fresh originals. It’s a front porch pickin’ experience.

Matt Moskal – Performs songs from a wide variety of genres with a set list as diverse as the audience.

Stella Weaver – a young singer/songwriter/guitarist/actor. Stella plays a variety of music including music from the 70s, 80s, current hits, original songs, and Christian songs.

Free parking is available along downtown streets, and in the City of Newnan’s public parking lots, located at: 13 Lagrange Street, 25 Lagrange Street, 22 Spring Street, 6 First Avenue, 50 East Broad Street, 65 East Broad Street, 41 East Washington Street, and 22 East Broad Street.
