C'ville Concerts Announced

I try to keep this blog on topic with Fredericksburg news, but I'm putting this here to show that what a college town almost exactly double the size of Fredericksburg can accomplish. I see hints that we're getting to this level of interest in community events and public space.

The Charlottesville Pavilion ( - an outdoor amphitheater that anchors their downtown main street area - just announced their summer concerts. For anyone interested, it's a short 1.5 hour or less drive to a unique experience of music, camaraderie, shopping and socializing. The free shows are funded through sponsorships and drink sales, with profits returned to the nonprofit organizations that help staff the events.

Paid Shows:
Two of a Kind 4/13
Feist 4/26
Switchfoot 4/27
Gary Allan 5/8
Emmylou Harris 6/23
Gladys Knight 6/28
Live From The Hook 7/26
Willie Nelson 7/29
Crosby, Stills and Nash 7/31
