Fall Fest at the Landrum Library featuring five outdoor performances

Published 6:05 pm Thursday, July 18, 2013

The Landrum Library had a great response to the music performances on the outdoor stage last year, so staff and supporters wanted to continue the fun this year by having the library’s first Fall Fest.

Fall Fest this year will feature five outdoor performances. The event will include some returning groups and some new sounds. These performances are sponsored by Spartanburg County Libraries, Landrum Friends of the Library and a private donor.

All the performances are great for all ages, but the series will start off this year with a special back-to-school event for families.

Tom Fisch, a performing songwriter, will entertain all ages with his warm vocals and outstanding songwriting, which combines folk and country sounds.

Brushfire Stankgrass from Asheville will return with their unique sound of bluegrass with jazz, jam, reggae and rock.

The crowds loved their modern mountain music that has become a regional favorite. Brushfire performances this year have ranged from all over North Carolina to Colorado, Georgia, Tennessee and South Carolina.

Another popular favorite returning this year is the East Tennessee State University Pride Band.

These students studying at East Tennessee State give a lively performance of old time and blue grass music that has the audience tapping and clapping.

New to the library lineup this year will be the sounds of the Wilhelm Brothers and the John Henrys, both Asheville-based groups.
