North Georgia Events Offer Range Of Entertainment

You’ll find a little burlesque, a dose of rockabilly and some good old community fun in the upcoming summer schedule here in the mountains. True to mountain standards and the season, these events are all casual affairs that only require a mindset for fun. Here are four to put on the calendar. view 2

The Vivants Concert. They may be from San Francisco, but this band has a pure Southern heart when it comes to their music. The quartet mixes great musicality with showmanship, performing their own blend of bluegrass, western swing, early jazz and more cool tunes.
