Art invades Washington Park

IT'S TIME FOR one of our favorite events of the year, the annual MidSummer Arts Faire in Washington Park. The square will be set up with tents and vendors and the park teeming with people. MSAF ties in perfectly with what we do at Second String Music and it's a good weekend for us.

In the store, we have 15 percent off all strings for acoustic, electric and bass guitars this weekend.

It starts Friday at 11:30 with a performance by Beau Becraft, brought to you by The District. The Butcher Block provides lunch and it's a great way to kick off the weekend. We'll start Happy Hour(s) early at the store Friday afternoon and with any luck we might make it off the sidewalk and into the park in the evening.

Grady Champion plays a Blues In The District show at 5:30 p.m. Friday. He dazzled us a couple of years ago and this guy blows a mean harp - you also need to pay attention if you are anywhere near the stage or fountain, because Grady goes wireless and likes to wander around - he might play right in front of you only for you!

I'm especially proud of the music we are providing for MSAF. We have some familiar and not-so familiar performers, all local and all worthy of playing in the Washington Park gazebo. People like Dave Griffin, Devonte Clark, Noah McNally and the father-son duo of Nick and Todd Boyer need to play out more! Cori Lyssy, Zeke Cernea, Seven Days Fuller and the The RagTag Irish Clan are also playing, click here for the schedule.

Second String Music will be open Sunday, as well. After torrential rains all week, the forecast is looking better and the park is the place to be. See you at Fifth and Maine!
