Springville Journal letter to the editor: Concord Mercantile raises funds for American Red Cross
Wednesday June 12, 2013 | By:Louis Starr |
Passing the hat at last Tuesday and Thursday’s free jam sessions at the Concord Mercantile General Store brought a $222 donation to the American Red Cross, for disaster relief to victims of the recent tornados in Oklahoma and Texas.
The musicians and spectators made the donation, during the two evenings of country, gospel and bluegrass music, which occur each Tuesday and Thursday night from 7 p.m. – 9 p.m.
Located at East Main and Franklin streets, behind the Pop Warner Museum, the mercantile is a modern copy of an 1890s general store.
Everyone is encouraged to attend these hoedowns, with their musical instrument, if you play, or to just sing along, if you don’t, as the writer of this article does.
The Concord Historical Society would like to advise readers that, on Saturday, Aug. 3 of this year, we will have the annual Fiddler’s Green Country and Bluegrass Festival in downtown Springville.
There will be live music at the Fiddlers Green Park gazebo and the Concord Mercantile General Store, from noon – 6 p.m. Afterwards, there will be round and square dancing at the Concord Town Hall from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. Come one, come all.
