Downtown Greensboro Hosts Pickin’ On The Greene
Front Porch Pickin’ on Main Street
(June 29, 2015 – Greensboro, GA) The sounds of live music and tapping toes filled Greensboro’s Main Street for the 4th annual Pickin’ On The Greene on Friday, June 26. Friends, neighbors, and visitors to town gathered for a beautiful summer evening in Lake Oconee’s Hometown.
The event, produced by Greensboro’s Main Street program, is quickly becoming one of the lake area’s summer favorites.
Tables and chairs filled Main Street and many brought blankets and folding chairs to enjoy the music. The Main Stage was set up just in front of Greensboro’s Festival Hall, and twinkling lights were strung across the street.
“This year’s Pickin’ On The Greene was a wonderful night in town,” says Greensboro’s Community Development Director, Cail Hammons. “We were thrilled with the crowd and everyone seemed to have a terrific time.”
As the sun dropped below the buildings on Main Street, Sibley Bryan on banjo and Anthony Porquez on the cello warmed up the crowd with with covers from U2, the Avett Brothers and the Lumineers.
This year’s headliner for the event was local favorite, Pullin’ Strings. Their one-of-a-kind sound features originals and favorites from across multiple genres. Pullin’ Strings features Marvin Payne, Robert Lewis and Sibley Bryan’s unique take on hits that span from Johnny Cash to Nirvana with a good amount of traditional blue grass thrown in the mix.
Downtown was filled with much more than music on Friday night. Greene County Family Connection hosted a bounce house for the kids, and Ray Foster’s tractor-pulled hay rides are always a favorite! The master grillers from Christ City of Faith did not disappoint, as the smell of food cooking on the grill floated through town.
The Greensboro Main Street program would like to thank the Greensboro Business Association, the Greene County Chamber of Commerce, the Greensboro Police Department, and DOCK 103.9 for their support of Pickin’ On The Greene.
