Concert music cranks up in Cornelia
Placeholder Image

Temperatures are heating up, and activities are following suit in downtown Cornelia with the city’s next installment of the summer concert series.

Headlining the Friday show is Dixie Still, a country trio from North Carolina with a sound similar to many top 40 country groups.

After forming two years ago, Dixie Still has quickly evolved into an award-winning act. It recently released its first album titled “Rumor” which has been getting some radio play across the Southeast. With stories told through the lyrics, listeners really seem relate to the songs.

The free concert will begin at 8 p.m. June 27 at the historic Cornelia Depot, 102 Clarkesville St.

Organizers encourage spectators to bring chairs, blankets and tables as permitted. But residents may also reserve a table for $25.

Small umbrellas are allowed if room permits but must not block the view of others. Event staff will be on hand to direct tent/umbrella users to proper locations.

The concert stage, seating area and beverage tent are in the courtyard near the apple statue in the heart of downtown. The Depot parking lot and Clarkesville Street will remain open for parking. Additional parking can be found on Apple Tree Alley or across the railroad tracks on Front and Larkin Streets.

A beverage tent will sell beer, wine and non-alcoholic beverages at 7 p.m. No outside alcoholic beverages are permitted but non-alcoholic ones are allowed. All coolers are subject to search.

The final concert of the summer will be July 25 with Joe Hall and his band.
