While The Village Green will not have the usual “Groovin’ on the Green” outdoor concert series this summer, there will be a modified version. “Concerts on the Commons” will be a limited edition of outdoor and indoor concerts July-October. Village Green Executive Director Ann Self has already scheduled some outstanding musicians, including a return to the stage by the Nashville artist Joe Lasher, Jr. The concerts will feature favorite groups and perhaps a few new ones as well. The Village Green staff is delighted, too, that they will be able to hold concerts indoors when the weather turns inclement or cooler and when daylight is shorter in the Fall. Like many musical and other venues, the Village Green will be selling “Commons Pods” with reserved concert seating. Village Green leaders are working out the particulars to accommodate as many residents and visitors as they are able. An announcement regarding information for Commons Pod ticket sales and other concert details will be made in early June.
Live music will return with a concert by the popular dance band Continental Divide at 6 p.m. Sunday, July 4 at the Commons. Continental Divide has been playing venues across the southeast for more than 30 years. From the silky smooth voice of Carolina Beach Music Hall of Fame performer Gene Pharr to the lightness of the rhythm section to the flowing lines of the horn section they put on a performance that everyone will sure to remember.
A new music event, Cashiers “Village Crawl” will be from 6-8 p.m. Friday, July 16, featuring Nitrograss taking the Commons stage and Spalding McIntosh and Friends performing at the Gazebo near the Cashiers crossroads. The evening will include pop-up boutique shops at the Commons venue along with a wine tasting by the Highlands Wine Shoppe. Food trucks will serve up delicious food to purchase on both sides of The Village Green. Local retailers will be open late and businesses will have special promotions that evening. Sip, savor, shop, and stroll the newly refurbished Cashiers Greenway Ramble for a delightful midsummer night with friends and family.
