Pullin’ Strings excited to perform on Friday July 13
For the local musicians who make up Pullin’ Strings, sharing the stage with Athens based bluegrass group The Packway Handle Band is a big honor.
For those of us in Georgia’s Lake Country looking for a toe-tappin’ good time, it is an evening in Downtown Greensboro that you simply will not want to miss!
Greensboro’s first annual “Pickin’ on the Greene” will take place from 7-10 pm on Friday, July 13 with headliner The Packway Handle Band and special guest Pullin’ Strings. The free event will showcase historic downtown Greensboro as Americana and Bluegrass tunes fill Main Street.
The Athens-based Packway Handle Band is widely known for its unique brand of bluegrass that features close four-part harmonies and traditional string instruments. The band has found regional and national acclaim with recognition as band of the year from Athens’ Flagpole Magazine and as finalists at the highly regarded Telluride Bluegrass festival.
Among its many fans the band can include local Americana group, Pullin’ Strings.

Campaign promotes payroll tax incentives for job creation
The City of Greensboro is working to spread the word that an empty store front might be more than it seems. With approval of the city’s new Opportunity Zone designation, commercial vacancies represent big tax incentives for new or expanding businesses.
“Greensboro has always been a great place to do business,” explains Better Hometown Manager, Cail Hammons. “We believe the new tax incentives Greensboro offers through the Opportunity Zone make the city even more attractive as a location for new business.”
The Georgia Department of Community Affairs announced Greensboro’s Opportunity Zone designation at the end of 2011. The zone encourages job creation within the much of the city’s commercial districts. Businesses located within the zone may receive a $3,500 job tax credit for each new job created with a minimum of two new jobs required. The credit may be claimed for five years.
