Kicking off summer weekends early, the Anne Springs Close Greenway will put on a monthly concert series on Thursday evenings beginning this week. Visitors can bring a picnic supper and listen to the strains of some of the region’s most popular bands.
Set in a pasture near the iconic 1947 Dairy Barn, concerts will feature a variety of music and offer a 90-minute evening getaway so people can still get home early. Gates open at 5:30 p.m., with music beginning at 6 p.m. on the second Thursday of each month, June through September.
The inaugural concert is this Thursday and brings the music of Cold River. Other concerts feature The Hinson Girls (July 11), Moonshine Racers (Aug. 8) and Caleb Davis (Sept. 12).
“This is a chance to kick back with your friends and family for a short time once a month and listen to music,” said Greenway Operations Director Buddy Faile.
“You can’t beat the magic of a summer evening – outside, in nature, with people you care about.”
Visitors are invited to bring blankets or lawn chairs. Soda, beer and wine will be available. And well-behaved dogs on six-foot leashes are always welcome on the greenway.
Members get in free, and cost for nonmembers is $3. Concerts take place at 288 Dairy Barn Lane, Fort Mill.
