|Outdoor concert set at farmers’ market on Labor Day|
Monday, August 19, 2013
The new Harvester Performance Center will host an outdoor concert at the farmers' market to celebrate the Town of Rocky Mount's 140th birthday on Labor Day.
This free event opens at 3 p.m. Monday, Sept. 2 with live music by Nora Jane Struthers & The Party Line, After Jack and Groova Scape, according to Harvester Performance Center Manager Gary Jackson.
Groova Scape will take the stage at 4:30 p.m., followed by After Jack at 6 p.m. and headliners Nora Jane Struthers and Party Line at 7:30 p.m.
Attendees are asked to bring chairs, blankets and coolers (no-alcohol) to enjoy an afternoon and evening of music and fun, Jackson said.
Empire Foods of Rocky Mount will provide a decorated birthday cake.
Although the Harvester Performance Center will have its grand opening in the spring of 2014, it is well on its way to becoming a landmark for entertainment and culture for the region, Jackson said.
"As Rocky Mount is the eastern gateway to the Crooked Road and our nation celebrates the hard work of its citizens, The Harvester has put together a great line-up of artists to entertain any and all who choose to attend," Jackson said.
Food and craft vendors who would like to sell at the event should email email@example.com to reserve space.
