And Opening Act

​​"Alison Brown doesn't play the banjo. Alison Brown plays music on the banjo."
Back by popular demand, the Oconee River Land Trust presents its Second Annual Benefit Concert: an unparalleled combination of roots music and grassroots fundraising for the rivers, forests, and farms that inspire it. With Grammy Award winning banjoist, Alison Brown, returning at the helm for the 2nd annual concert, this event promises to be one of North Georgia’s most exciting nights of acoustic music in 2018! 

Brown and friends keep the audience on their toes with a combination of duets, trios and full band performances. The unique “variety show” format is a crowd favorite and is guaranteed to create a memorable night of music. Guest artists include Sierra Hull & Justin Moses, and Grammy-nominated duo Rob Ickes &Trey Hensley.

Concert proceeds benefit ORLT, a state-wide nonprofit with a mission of protecting land in Georgia. Your ticket purchase supports a healthier, greener environment for the benefit of present and future generations!
