Music in the Park

“Music in the Park,” an old tradition, is returning to Greenwood Saturday , September 21 at 7 PM in the gazebo on the town square. Musicians and music lovers are invited to join singer/songwriters Jill and Jason Wagoner, guitarist Jabe Burgess and other area musicians as they come together to play and sing unrehearsed music with and for each other and the audience. Dr. James Burgess will open the event with a brief history of the community tradition.

The goal of the jam is to have fun making music together, provide a platform for emerging and experienced musicians and provide wholesome entertainment the whole family can enjoy.
