LOGAN – Friday night’s Music in the Park will feature Mike Sigler and The Nashville North Band, performing country, gospel, and old time rock and roll music. There is a time change for all 2021 park concerts, to 6:30–8 pm.
Nashville North is the opening act for the eight-week season and is a perennial favorite at Worthington Park, appearing yearly, to the delight of concert-goers. Mike sings and plays steel guitar and will be accompanied by brother, Gary, on drums, and nephew Bryant, on bass guitar. All performers are from Rushville, Ohio, excluding Dean Inboden, Logan’s own home-grown musician (now living in Kingston), who will be picking lead guitar. Another family member, Beth Sigler Bigham, will rock the park with her powerful vocals.
Hocking Hills Inspire Shelter will vend sandwiches, snacks, beverages and desserts in the park each Friday evening by donation. Concert-goers need to bring lawn chairs or blankets for seating. All social distancing and CDC requirements will be observed. For more concert info, contact the coordinators: Keith and Liza Conners at (740) 385-0634.
Fans of Mike also can hear him and his family, together with the Clark family, on first Saturday nights throughout the summer at the Heart of the Country Event Barn, 11665 Dalton Road, Rockbridge. Admission is charged.
Sunday evening will bring even more music to Logan’s Town Center. The Wild Honeybees will appear for a lawn concert at the Bowen House at 4 p.m. The Honeybees are described as a nine-piece, New Orleans style R&B dance band, dedicated to bringing the power of a live horn section back to the dance stage. Sample the music at https://www.facebook.com/thewildhoneybees. Concert-goers are invited to bring their lawn chairs, although some seating will be available. Admission fee is $10 for Bowen House members/$12 for non-members. In the event of rain, the concert will be moved to an indoor venue to be announced.
Music in the Park will take a one-week break while the Washboard Music Festival takes over the town and will return on Friday, June 25 to feature The Wayfarers of Zanesville, an Appalachian bluegrass band featuring their unique style of American Roots music.
