Concert Series Celebrates Summer at the Anne Springs Close Greenway

FORT MILL, S.C., JULY 31, 2013 — Hosting the third concert of its summer series on Thursday, Aug. 8, the Anne Springs Close Greenway invites visitors to bring a picnic supper and listen to the unique musical blend of The Moonshine Racers, a North Carolina band whose members have shared the stage with musical greats including the late Doc Watson.

The monthly concert series features a variety of music and offers a 90-minute getaway on the second Thursday of each month, through September. Set in a pasture near the iconic 1947 Dairy Barn, concerts will move inside the barn in the event of rain.

Moonshine Racers have played together for more than a decade and perform everything from Blues and Bluegrass, to Rock and Jazz, and even some psychedelic strains. Music begins at 6:15 p.m. on Aug. 8. The final concert of the series will follow on Sept. 12 and feature Caleb Davis.

“People are really responding to this opportunity get outside with their friends and family to listen to music in a natural setting,” said Greenway operations director Buddy Faile. “It helps kick off the weekend a little early and offers a break from people’s routines.”

Visitors are invited to bring blankets or lawn chairs. Soda, beer and wine will be available. Well-behaved dogs on 6-foot leashes are always welcome on the Greenway.

Greenway members get in free, and cost for non-members is $3. Concerts take place at 288 Dairy Barn Lane, Fort Mill.
