Shop Downtown and Listen to Powers & Brown on July 9, 2016
Farmville Downtown Partnership announces the launch of Players on the Plaza, a new concert series that features musicians performing at the High Bridge Trail Plaza in downtown Farmville. Performances will be on the first Saturday of the month from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm.
On Saturday July 9, 2016, shoppers can listen to Farmville’s very own Powers & Brown as they perform a variety of bluegrass, classic country, and Celtic music. This energetic duo has most recently played at James River Brewery in Scottsville, Uptown Coffee in Farmville, and Benjamin’s in Lynchburg. Rain date for the performance is July 16.
The third installment of Players on the Plaza will be August 6, 2016 and will feature the modern jazz stylings of Marcus Pendergrass and Sabrina Brown. Rain date for this performance is August 13. The September performer will be announced soon.
Guitarist Joel Worford kicked off Players on the Plaza on June 4th with his covers of rock and blues classics along with original works. “The idea was to create a low-key event for those who shop downtown on the weekends” says Chuck Ross, volunteer coordinator for Players on the Plaza. “We’re hoping to build a new weekend vibe at the Plaza that people can enjoy when they visit and shop in Farmville.”
Whether you’re shopping at Green Front, viewing an exhibition at J. Ferguson Gallery, or enjoying a meal at Uptown Coffee or Charley’s Waterfront Cafe, Players on the Plaza is a welcome addition to the energetic atmosphere of downtown Farmville.
“Players on the Plaza continues the tradition of promoting Farmville as a popular weekend destination for retail shopping, dining, and enjoying the arts” says John Burton, Program Manager for the Farmville Downtown Partnership.
