Sundays on the River Concert featuring Gwen Hughes & “Grit Hits!”

Enjoy a night out with families and friends and listen to the American jazz sounds of Gwen Hughes & “Grit Hits!” This is the perfect way to wrap-up the weekend with family and friends at an outdoor concert at the Ben Brady Lakeside Pavilion.  When it comes to the history of American popular music, all roads lead Down South.  Gwen & The Native Land Band put your favorite hit records in an exhilarating, funky setting that will make you dance and sing along.  All Ages;

Headliner:  Gwen Hughes brings from the birth of the blues in Mississippi…to the birth of jazz in New Orleans…country music in Virginia…the funk of Georgia…and the Southern rock of Florida…it all comes back to The South.  In between songs, Gwen leads the audience on a freewheeling & fun history lesson of why The South is such a breeding ground for iconic recording artists. Why is it that Elvis, Tina Turner, Johnny Mercer, Hank Williams, Louis Armstrong – plus dozens of other legends – come out of a primarily rural, agricultural region? All regions of the USA have great music, but no region has racked up quite as many gold records from so many diverse genres as The South.

Opening Act: Arthur Turner piano with Caydn Lexa
