Summer Concert Series Kicked Off at New Harvest

On June 16, Knox County launched a new summer concert series, Third Thursday Concerts at New Harvest Park, with world-renowned dobro player Phil Leadbetter and Friends (pictured right).

The free concerts, held June through August on the third Thursday of each month, take place immediately following the New Harvest Park Farmers Market from 6 to 8 p.m. at 4775 New Harvest Lane. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own blankets or lawn chairs.

Knoxville’s Grammy nominated Phil Leadbetter was awarded “Dobro Player Of The Year” at The International Bluegrass Music Awards in 2015 and inducted into The Atlanta Country Music Hall of Fame.

The 2016 Third Thursday Concerts at New Harvest Park are sponsored by WIVK 107.7 FM and Knox County Parks & Recreation.
