Bluegrass at Andalusia

The Foundation has been hosting a Bluegrass concert at Andalusia for the last few years, and it has turned out to be one of the most popular events of the year. This year the concert will be on Saturday evening on October 18, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. The band is Redline Express, a group of talented musicians with quite a following in the middle Georgia area. The cost for admission is only $5 per person. The concert takes place on the front lawn of the main house, under the huge oak trees. People bring folding chairs, blankets, picnic baskets, wine, and flashlights, then set up as close or as far away from the band as they feel comfortable. The air gets cool after sundown, which adds to the whole atmosphere. Some folks get here early enough to walk the nature trail before settling in for the entertainment. The main house is open for tours, along with the gift shop. Bring a friend or the whole family and enjoy an evening out in the country, but only a few hundred feet from Highway 441. The concert is sponsored by Lynda S. Banks and Mary Anne Murray, two members of the Foundation's Board of Directors. Thanks ladies!
