ATHENS-For almost a decade, the Athens-Limestone County Tourism Association has been hosting Singing on the Square during the summer around the courthouse square. This year, in conjunction with our Shine a Light on Athens Big Spring Park marketing campaign, and to avoid any confusion with Main Street’s Fridays After Five on the Square, we are rebranding our very popular free concerts to SINGING IN THE PARK. The three Singing in the Park Summer Concert Series Friday night dates are: May 12th, June 9th, and July 14th. They will all take place in the beautiful Athens Big Spring Memorial Park behind the Athens-Limestone Visitors Center at 100 N. Beaty St., just 2 blocks from the square.
Announcing the addition of our generous Artist Sponsor Hughes Properties, II, LLC, our generous Stage Sponsor Michael Howell State Farm, and a brand new Food Court with food trucks open from 6:00 pm and the Free Live Music scheduled for 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm with these crowd favorite local artists:
May 12th – Tom McClung: A local musician, gigging professionally since he was 15, Tom has played solo and with Bark the Dawg on and off for 30 years.
June 9th – Matt Prater: A local singer-songwriter and soulful storyteller with Country, Honky Tonk, Folk, and Roots Music influences.
