(Greensboro, GA-June 13, 2013) For the local musicians who make up Pullin’ Strings, sharing the stage with the Dahlonega band The Fidlleheads, is sure to be a fun time.
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 second annual Pickin’ on the Greene will take place from 7-10 pm on Friday, June 28 with headliner The Fiddleheads and special guest Pullin’ Strings. The free event will showcase historic downtown Greensboro as Americana and Bluegrass tunes fill Main Street.
Dahlonega-based The Fiddleheads band is widely known for their appearance on “America’s Got Talent” TV show. The band is known for their bluegrass rendition of Brittney Spear’s “Toxic” as well as other well-known current pop, 80’s and 90’s songs turned bluegrass.
Opening for The Fiddleheads is local favorite Americana group, Pullin’ Strings.
“We are humbled to have the opportunity to play at ‘Pickin’ on the Greene’ again,” remarks Sibley Bryan, five-string banjo player for Pullin’ Stings. “It is a great community event that draws the local community as well as people from neighboring communities to downtown Greensboro.”
Pullin’ Strings will kick off the entertainment line-up for Pickin’ on the Greene. The band’s music spans different genres, such as folk, bluegrass, rock, country and gospel. The group is made up of Marvin Payne, Sibley Bryan, Brian Doty and Robert Lewis who all live, work and play in Greene County.
In addition to great live music, Pickin’ on the Greene will highlight area community groups and non-profits. The 4-H will be selling baked goods and PawPaw’s Peanuts will be on hand selling everyone’s favorites such as boiled peanuts. In addition, Festival Hall will provide a cash bar for the evening on its outdoor plaza.
