As a small way of giving back to the community during these trying times, the Alliance for the Arts is offering a free outdoor bluegrass concert on Sunday, Nov. 6 at 10091 McGregor Blvd., Fort Myers. The concert will be held on the Green Market Stage. Gates open at 2 p.m. with Southwind playing at 3 p.m. and Bluegrass Central taking the stage at 4 p.m. Chairs and coolers are permitted.
“Things have not been easy for anyone in the area since hurricane Ian,” says Bill Taylor, producing artistic director. “This is our way of offering everyone a free and fun way to relax for a few hours.” Reserve your free ticket here, or by going to ArtInLee.org.
The series continues on Dec. 4 in 2022, with performances on Jan. 8, Feb. 5 and March 5 in 2023. Tickets for the rest of the season are $15 for members, $16 for non-members and are available online at ArtInLee.org or by calling 239-939-2787.
Pre-sale seating is limited to 132 and is first come, first serve. In the case of bad weather, the show will be moved indoors to the Foulds Theatre. Additional tickets may be available at the door, weather permitting. More information, including a list of performers, can be found at artinlee.org/bluegrass.
