The show begins Thursday, April 9 at 7:00 p.m. with local bands Leaving Countries and
Leaving Countries was founded by Louis Phillip Pelot and has diversely performed everything from a solo act to a 13-piece orchestra. The band explores the crossroads between loving your hometown and the pull of the road with a soulful blend of original songs and popular hits.
Cicada Rhythm is made up of Georgia natives Andrea DeMarcus and Dave Kirslis. The pair modernizes folk music in a way that American Songwriter deemed ?Hypnotic.
During the performances, viewers will be able to comment, like, and donate. Donations will support the Athens Area Community Foundation's COVID-19 Community Response Fund. The performers that raise the most support will have the opportunity to perform at live events in the community such as the AthFest Music and Arts Festival, AthHalf, Terrapin RecFest, or as an opener for an upcoming concert at The Classic Center.
