Spivey Hall Summer World Music Festival: 8th of January
Part of Spivey Hall’s Summer World Music Festival, a power-packed, three-day celebration of global music, this year featuring Georgia band 8th of January, performing traditional and modern bluegrass tunes with original vocals and hard-driving instrumentals. Nominated for the Americana/Bluegrass GA Music Award in 2016, 8th of January plays with precision and soul, boasting a repertoire that includes selections from Old Crow Medicine Show, Alan Jackson and Bob Dylan, among others. High energy and highly engaging, this award-winning ensemble will have your toes tapping and your hands clapping.
In between concerts, festival goers can enjoy DIY craft tables reflecting the cultures of the day and an “instrument petting zoo.” The Clayton State University Center will again this year offer a globally-inspired menu and concert goers can picnic by the lake before or after performances.
