WRFG’s 2nd Annual Americana In The Park

This year, we honor folk legend, Frank Hamilton. Frank was a member of The Weavers, played with Woody Guthrie, and was co-writer of “We Shall Overcome.” He is also a well-respected Atlanta music teacher and a superb guitarist. The lineup also includes four great bands for your listening and dancing pleasure:

  • Back In the Saddle – ”An All-Star Western Music Band playing a rousing blend of Cowboy, Western Swing, Movie/TV Western themes and original songs.”
  • Cedar Hill – “An award-winning bluegrass group from Atlanta, Georgia, with a high energy show that features variety, comedy and entertainment, tight harmony, unique vocal arrangements, and masterful picking.”
  • Liz Brasher – “She doesn’t just play music. She explodes. Real Gospel, Real Country, Real Soul and R&B ballads.”
  • Russ Still and the Moonshiners – “Country/Rock blended with compelling lyrics, interesting melodies and fresh arrangements.” The Georgia Music Association has named them Best Country Band for two years in a row.

Proceeds benefit WRFG 89.3 FM / wrfg.org, Atlanta’s independent community radio station for progressive information and quality
