The "First Friday Night Concert Series" in Hancock Park in Dahlonega will spotlight Ugly Cousin and Fools Gold Sept. 6.
Ugly Cousin band members are natives of Dahlonega and grew up around a variety of music. A clear and ‘golden’ thread of traditional music is woven throughout their repertoire. Both age old favorites and well-honed originals incorporate a half dozen genres of music.
Fool’s Gold cooks a simmering stew made up of traditional mountain music, blues, rock, gospel and early country sounds. They have been a mainstay of Dahlonega area music for years. Using acoustic and electric guitars, mandolin, bass, harmonica and lap-steel guitar they produce what can best be described as "mountain jazz," an uplifting blend of America’s music.
The concert begins at 6:30 p.m. Friday in downtown Dahlonega.
The next concert will be Sept. 20 featuring The Remember When Band. Music selections include "golden oldie" rock ’n’ roll, country tunes, Latin rhythms and much more.
