Music on the Bricks

THOMASVILLE — Downtown Thomasville Main Street will host a free outdoor concert on Saturday. Starting at 6:30 pm, this first in a series of “Music on the Bricks” concerts features an area favorite, The Sarah Mac Band.

Claire, Charlie and Sarah Mac came together in early 2005 aspiring to create an original sound that blended the very unique styles that each member brought to the group. From this union emerged an engaging combination of blues, jazz, and acoustic rock that has been classified as both Americana and Alternative. The band simply describes the sound as “jazzy, bluesy, rock -- with a healthy dose of soul.”

Sarah Mac’s voice ranges from the full power and grit of Janis Joplin, the sweet, soothing, breathy tone of Feist or Edie Brickell, and the gut-wrenching raw tones of an old soul or gospel singer. Paired with Charlie’s intricate, sultry guitar style and Claire’s solid, intriguing bass lines, this trio creates a powerful live experience that has earned them a loyal, growing following. They have supported groups such as the Lee Boys, Shawn Colvin, Robert Randolph, Marc Roberge (O.A.R.), and Shawn Mullins.

“Hosting this outdoor concert is just another part of Main Street’s mission to promote Downtown Thomasville as not only a great shopping and dining destination, but also as the place to work, live and play,” said Karen Smith, executive director of Main Street and Tourism. “The heart of our city is thriving, and through events such as this, our downtown continues to be a great venue for fun, family-friendly entertainment as well.”

“The concert will be staged near the intersection of Broad and Jefferson,” said Felicia Brannen, event coordinator. “To accommodate the concert, the 100 block of North Broad Street will be closed to traffic from 4 p.m. until 10 p.m.”

The Sarah Mac Band will take the stage at 6:30 p.m. Visitors are encouraged to bring their lawn chairs and enjoy the free concert.
