June 23, 2014. The second concert of the summer series “Concerts in the Park” will be The Major Sevens. The concert is on Thursday, June 26 at 6:30 p.m. and is free.
The band is made up of guitarist Brooks Forsyth, fiddler Drayton Aldridge and Robert Hunt contributing the mandolin and backup guitar. These Boone natives have an unique sound bringing the influences of bluegrass, blues, jazz and classic rock together.
“Hailing from North Carolina, their enigmatic sound – brimming with graceful harmonies and thought-provoking lyrics – is based in the acoustic past while surging forward into an electrified future,” said Paul Kerr of Jambase.
The concert series is put on by the Banner Elk Chamber of Commerce and the Town of Banner Elk. Each week one business sponsors each performance. This weeks sponsor is Morningstar Mini Storage.
Located on Silver Springs Drive in Banner Elk, Morningstar Mini Storage has been offering high quality storage for more than 30 years. They have heated and cooled units with 24-hour secured access and well-lit grounds.
