Southern Grown Concert Series presents Indigo Girls
7:00 p.m.
The Southern Grown Concert Series presents the Indigo Girls live in concert at Rainbow Island Thursday, September 8 at 7 p.m.

The Indigo Girls have spent thirty-five years performing together, produced fifteen albums (seven gold, four platinum, and one double platinum), earned a Grammy and seven Grammy nominations, and have toured arenas, festivals, and clubs the world over. It is rare to find musicians together so long, rarer still with such profound successes. Their music lives in the hearts of generations of dedicated fans and continues to inspire young musicians. This loyalty is not accidental. Perhaps their relevance over three decades can be credited to the mighty collisions of distinct aesthetics forging new paths over time. The Girls' refinement - not only of style and skill, but of their own creative processes - allows access to ever new and liminal spaces.

This September, Glynn Visual Arts celebrates its 46th year hosting this beautiful Fine Arts & Crafts Festival now known as Art Under the Oaks. True to tradition, artists will hail from around the region representing a wide range of mediums. 70 artists and craftsmen will present a variety of original two dimensional art, sculpture, photography, jewelry, textiles, ceramics, wood, metal and glass - all available for purchase. While exploring the show, visitors can keep an eye out for the artists who are awarded ribbons for their outstanding work in their medium.

This festival is a colorful event featuring something for everyone. Attendees will enjoy the opportunity to meet the artists and connect with them about their artwork.

Southern Grown Concert Series presents The Marshall Tucker Band
7:00 p.m.
The Southern Grown Concert Series presents The Marshall Tucker Band in concert at Rainbow Island Thursday, December 1 at 7 p.m.

In the early fall of 1973 The Marshall Tucker Band was still a young and hungry group out to prove themselves every time they hit the stage. The band's recent release of their Live! From Englishtown album is a time capsule from that period. "We were a bunch of young guys who didn't know any boundaries" says founding member and longtime lead singer Doug Gray.

Today the band records on its own RAMBLIN' RECORDS Label (distributed by Sony / RED) and continues to release new and previously unreleased material. For their most recent release, the band dug into the vault and emerged with the original live recordings from its biggest show to date. The new Live! From Englishtown album was originally performed in 1977 and reportedly drew more than 150,000 fans. Still led today by founding member and lead singer Doug Gray, they represent a time and place in music that will never be duplicated.

Tickets can be purchased at www.siconcertseries.com.
