Getting a jump on the outdoor festival music calendar, Jimmy Barrett hosted the AcoustiCountry Fest at his River Street Beat Shop in Troy last Saturday afternoon, and let’s face it, you couldn’t have asked for better weather – nice and warm, not too windy and lots and lots of sun.
A fundraiser for the Hope 7 Community Center food bank and after-school program, the fest was a fine way to unwind on a lazy spring afternoon. And, of course, there was plenty of great music to soak up – along with the sunshine.
The festivities featuring performances by Holly & Evan, Tern Rounders, Jonesville and Big Creek – a big batch of lower 40, back-porch sounds right smack dab in the middle of downtown.
