The Tater Shed is all warmed up from the recent Raise the Roof event, and ready for the Simpsonville Summer Music Series to begin. Hosted by the Simpsonville Arts Foundation, the weekly concerts start Friday, June 2 and run through August 11.
The James Radford Band will be the first in the series, and their sound is best described as country and southern rock mixed with a little soul. Their 2016 EP “Songs for Carolina” has sold over 6,000 copies, and they have opened for Lee Greenwood, Shooter Jennings, and Jerrod Niemann.
The music will start at 7:00 PM each week, but guests can come as early as 6:30 PM to claim a “spot.” Lawn chairs and blankets are welcome, or guests can take advantage of the amphitheater seating.
Unique to this venue in Simpsonville, concert goers can bring their own food and drinks. The Lazy Farmer food truck will also be on site this week.
The show will go on rain or shine–in the event of bad weather the concert will be held inside the auditorium of the Arts Center.
Best of all, this event series boasts free admission.
The Tater Shed is located behind the Arts Center (historic school building) at 110 Academy St. in downtown Simpsonville.
