Fort Mill concerts celebrate summer

Observer staff reports

The Moonshine Racers, an N.C. band whose members have shared the stage with musical greats including the late Doc Watson, will perform Thursday at the Anne Springs Close Greenway in Fort Mill as part of a summer concert series.

The monthly concerts include a variety of music and offer a quick getaway on the second Thursday of each month, through September. Set on a grassy lawn near the greenway’s iconic 1947 Dairy Barn, concerts will move inside the barn in the event of rain.

Moonshine Racers have played together for more than a decade and perform everything from Blues and Bluegrass, to Rock and Jazz, and even some psychedelic strains. Music begins at 6:15 p.m. on Thursday. Cost is $3. Members get in free.

“People are really enjoying this opportunity to get outside with their friends and family to listen to music in a natural setting,” said Greenway operations director Buddy Faile. “It helps kick off the weekend a little early and offers a break from people’s routines.”

Visitors are invited to bring picnics, blankets or lawn chairs. Soda, beer and wine will be available. Well-behaved dogs on 6-foot leashes are always welcome on the Greenway, located at 288 Dairy Barn Lane, Fort Mill, S.C.
