The Work moves inside to TFAC July 5

Published 9:51pm Thursday, July 4, 2013

As with all Summer Tracks concerts, the show is free, though a voluntary donation at the gate is encouraged. Audience donations along with the generous sponsorships of local businesses and individuals make these shows possible. JR’s wood-fired pizzas, water and soft drinks will be for sale. Summer Tracks is produced by the Town of Tryon in affiliation with Peter Eisenbrown of Blockparty Productions. The popular series attracts people from all over the region.  Last year, the concerts drew an estimated 2,000 people to downtown Tryon.
