Sunflower Music Series

It’s almost summertime and that means the Sunflower Concert Series is just around the corner here at the State Botanical Garden. There is a great line up for you this year!

Shonna Tucker and Eye Candy will kick-off the series on Tuesday, June 4, with their debut performance at the Garden. Enjoy southern soul with pop overtones as the five piece band, including two original members of the Athens-based band Drive-By Truckers, gives you a night to remember.

2006 Grammy nominee Caroline Aiken will return to the Garden stage to perform on Tuesday, July 9. The folk rock singer has toured with the Indigo Girls and Bonnie Raitt and released an impressive seven albums during her career.

Get ready to dance! The annual favorites, Grogus, will be returning again this year on Tuesday, August 20, to perform a mixture of original and cover songs. From salsa to rumba this is sure to be a lively night.

World-renowned artist, Arvin Scott, will deliver a delightful show full of jazz with overtones of world music with his quartet on Tuesday, September 17. The jazz artist will play keyboard, drums, bass and guitar.

So bring a blanket and picnic basket with your favorite goodies or grab dinner at Dondero’s Kitchen at the Garden and settle in for a wonderful night of music!

Each concert is 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. on the stage of the State Botanical Garden’s terraced Flower Garden. Admission to each concert is $15 and includes light refreshments. Children’s tickets are also available. Tickets can be purchased at The Garden Shop, online, and at Wuxtry Records. Concerts will take place at the Visitor Center and Conservatory in case of inclement weather.
