Roswell, GA – Whether it’s a girls’ night, date night, or a you night, nature will provide the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable evening at the Sundays on the River concert series at the Chattahoochee Nature Center. Bring a picnic, blanket, and plenty of food to share in this Chastain-style night of fun along the river.
The summer series is every second Sunday, through September.
The June 9 performer is Freddy & Francine.
Playing what Rolling Stone Country calls “…a stripped-down, soulful sound,” Freddy & Francine combine folk and Americana to create a unique sound of catchy melodies and sweet harmonies with a dash of pop.
To the casual observer, the Nashville duo of Freddy & Francine (their actual names are Lee Farris and Bianca Caruso) seem safely cemented as a folk duo. They’ve got the look and the soulful harmonies, but they’re more than that.
“We’re performers. We’re not just folk musicians who play and sing mellow songs with little voices…there’s screaming.” Caruso said.
Don’t call it Americana either. They don’t wear hats. Besides, Caruso said, “The minute you think one of our songs is an Americana song, it can turn into a retro pop song.”
Despite the reaction of most roots music fans to the dreaded “P” word, Caruso says she doesn’t mind Freddy & Francine being labeled a pop band.
Freddy & Francine plan to release their latest Nashville-recorded EP in September.
Freddy & Francine will perform at CNC June 9.
The Sundays on the River concert series is every second Sunday, May – September. Each artist performs at the Chattahoochee Nature Center’s scenic lakeside pavilion under the stars and trees, along the banks of the Chattahoochee River. A cash bar is available and guests are encouraged to bring picnics. Tickets, event dates, musicians and additional show information at www.chattnaturecenter.org.
