Thanks to new Beaufort radio station 94.5 The Coast and Butler Chrysler Dodge Jeep of Beaufort, the popular Habersham Marketplace First Fridays Series will now continue year round. Bobby Houck, vocalist and guitar player for Charleston’s highly acclaimed rock band, Blue Dogs, will take the stage November 2 and bring his Americana-tinged contemporary rock to the Habersham Marketplace. As is customary for First Fridays events, the event will feature an expanded Farmer’s Market complete with local and regional growers, as well as arts, crafts and specialty food vendors from 4-9 p.m. Family friendly and children’s activities will also be offered. There is no cost to enter.
“We are beyond thrilled to have this series continue and are thankful for the support of our sponsors,” stated Habersham Marketplace Merchant’s Council President Leslie Pickel. “What began as an effort to engage the broader community in our diverse Marketplace continues to exceed our expectations.”
Over the years Bobby Houck and the Blue Dogs has performed on the same stage with such well-known and diverse artists as Willie Nelson, Widespread Panic, Bruce Hornsby, and Little Feat. They have also received national exposure by singing the national anthem at the final Southern 500 NASCAR race in Darlington SC in 2004, and have garnered glowing reviews in The New York Times and the Washington Post, among others.
The Habersham Marketplace is located at 13 Market St. in the Habersham Community, located off of
Joe Frazier Road in Beaufort. For more information, visit www.habershammarketplace.com
