Doors Open at 6 p.m., Concert from 7 to 9 p.m. | Members $20, Non-Members $25
Start your weekend off in the historic Gardens with the WillowWacks and Canary in the Coalmine playing under the stars. The WillowWacks, an intimate husband and wife duo, have a defined sound with Lauren’s timeless, tender vocal style and Micah’s diverse, playful acoustic instrumentation. Canary in the Coalmine is an Americana-Folk band fronted by songwriters Jessica Pounds and Sandy Wicker. A haunting quality underscores striking vocal harmonies that provide a focal point for the band’s Appalachian folk and alternative country influences. Canary in the Coalmine has garnered local and regional acclaim from sources such as EU Jacksonville, NPR, Folio Weekly, and many others.
Both bands will bring a beautiful tying of music to Folk Couture: Fashion and Folk Art, currently on display at the Museum. The evening will be truly special, as it will be the second-to-last performance of Canary in the Coalmine, with the band concluding their time together the very next evening at Porchfest.
Guests are invited to bring chairs, picnics, and beverages of choice to enjoy a relaxing evening in the Gardens overlooking downtown Jacksonville by the St. Johns River. Beer, wine, sodas, and light snacks will be available for purchase. Let the Cummer Café handle your food and beverages by ordering ahead.
