Yellow Dandies at Angel Park
Thursday, June 29, 2017
Friday Nights in the Park, sponsored by the Sewanee Business Alliance (SBA), continues today (Friday), June 30, with the Yellow Dandies. The rain location is the American Legion Hall.
University Avenue will be closed at 6 p.m. for the annual outdoor family event, with food and drink from local vendors available for purchase. The entertainers play from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. in the Angel Park Pavilion. This event is free and open to the public.
The Yellow Dandies, including accomplished musicians and St. Andrew’s-Sewanee alumni Keystone Hill (Bailey Hill) and Ben Hood (Ben Ayers), combines, as they describe it “old-time string band music with the weirdness of Zappa, the heart of Hartford, and the idiotic fury of The Pogues.” Hill and Hood are joined by Wink Crittendon on bass and Aerin de Russy on fiddle. Hill, Hood, and the Yellow Dandies are out to showcase American folk music’s wild roots and introduce it to new audiences in a provocative way.
The SBA is sponsoring a reverse raffle to benefit Angel Park and the Community Action Committee, with a chance for participants to win up to $10,000.
Tickets are $100 each, and no more than 500 tickets will be sold. Tickets are for sale at the following local businesses: Locals, Woody’s Bicycles ,Lemon Fair, The Blue Chair and University Realty. Tickets may also be purchased online at <sewaneeangelpark.com>.
During each Friday Nights in the Park event, there will be a drawing for a special prize. The ticket drawn will be placed back in the pool for another chance to win. On the last night, July 14, the $10,000 grand prize drawing will be held. Participants do not have to be present to win.
The rest of the lineup for Friday Nights in the park is The Top Tier Band on July 7, and C-Mac and the Madras Men on July 14.
