Pickin’ Party & Concert Under the Stars

Bowie Nature Park, in Fairview, will host the Starlight Jam concert series, starting in late April.

Starlight Jams will be Friday nights of the New Moon from April through October from 7:00-10:00PM. Each month will include live Americana music on the main stage. Pickers are encouraged to bring their instruments and find a spot under the trees to jam. The goal is to provide a place for musicians to get together and play and to provide a place for music lovers to go and enjoy great music in a laid back, family friendly environment under the stars.

April’s headliner, Leipers Fork Bluegrass, is professional, unique, & captivating. Their music includes a touch of country, pop, blues and gospel.
