Pickin' in the Park returns Friday night

Jun 05, 2014

Canton’s acclaimed summer music series, Pickin’ in the Park will kick off Friday evening at Recreation Park.

Set against the backdrop of the Pigeon River, Pickin’ features local blue grass and old-time musical acts and cloggers every Friday evening through September. The event attracts thousands of people to Canton each year and is a family-oriented celebration of the area's rich Appalachian culture.

The event also provides an opportunity for local musicians to share their talents through informal jam sessions that sprout up throughout the park. The event begins at 7 p.m. The Lisa Price Band will be headlining along with the Green Valley Cloggers & Southern Mtn Fire.
