The Hiddenite Arts & Heritage Center’s annual Summer on the Square Free Concert Series will kick off this evening with bluegrass music from the legendary, “Sugar Loaf Ramblers.”
All Summer on the Square Concerts are held at 7pm on the lawn of the Alexander County Courthouse in Taylorsville (29 W Main Ave). In case of rain, the concert will be moved to the Hiddenite Arts & Heritage Center’s Educational Complex (70 Hiddenite Church Rd.). Summer on the Square is free to attend; bring lawn chairs or a picnic blanket for seating. Concessions will be available from the 957 Mobile Café.
Celebrating their 50th year of music, the Sugar Loaf Ramblers is comprised of founding members Elbert Harrington and Bill Robinson, Gerald Treadway, Travis Treadway, Allen Miller, and Savannah Minyard.
The Summer on the Square Free Concert Series is a partnership between the Hiddenite Arts & Heritage Center, the Town of Taylorsville, and Alexander County Government. This unique collaboration between local government and the arts is credited with providing diverse live music and cultural entertainment in downtown Taylorsville at no cost to the public.
Summer on the Square will continue on Friday, July 15th featuring The Shake Down Band and will conclude on Friday, August 19th with Tin Can Alley.
