[September 04, 2012]
ATLANTA -- The talented and
creative indie band Something With Trees comes to the Atlanta Public Library
on Saturday. The band will join the Central Illinois Jazz Collective, the
Route 66 Barbershop Quartet, and Julie Kasa and Natalie Stephens in a
morning of music on the library lawn.
Bring your own lawn chairs, sit back, relax and enjoy a variety of
musical styles and genres. This is a great way to get ready for the
parade at 2 p.m. and all the other Atlanta Fall Festival activities
MusicFest 2012 will begin with the Central Illinois
Jazz Collective, led by trombonist Tim Pitchford, from 10 to 10:45
a.m. The Route 66 Barbershop Quartet and the Kasa-Stephens duo with
Broadway favorites will follow from 10:50 to 11:40 a.m. Something
With Trees will perform from 11:45 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
The unique sound of Something With Trees is driven by vocalist
Brian Davis, whose musical storytelling captivates audiences of
every age. Davis, who also plays guitar and harmonica, is joined by
Collin Krause on violin, mandolin and vocals; Shaina Mattson on
vocals; and Austin Thompson on drums. Rock? Bluegrass? Sixties folk?
Come on out and be your own judge.
