The Beaufort Sweetgrass Music Festival, a benefit concert for the Child Abuse Prevention Association (CAPA), will showcase local bands playing 60s and 70s music on Saturday, June 4, from 1-10 p.m. at Beaufort Town Center Lakeview (under the big white tent). Tickets are $15 in advance or $18 at the gate.
The all-day concert features music by The Groovetones, Joshua Foxx, The Mr. Bill Band, Snazzy Red, Brandon Hage Band and more.
Nationally recognized sweet-grass basket weaver Vera Manigault will give a sewing demonstration of her treasured baskets during the day. She will also have baskets for sale.
“All of these bands are coming together to help the children of Beaufort County. Many members of these bands and their relatives have played in bands in Beaufort since the early 1960s and are considered local musical legends I look forward to spending the day on our tidal marshes listening to some great music and helping the children. You will have the best time that you’ve had in Beaufort in many years,” said Susan Wester, volunteer event coordinator.
Come out for a day of fun — 60s and 70s music, full barbecue plates and a cash bar. All proceeds benefit CAPA. Purchase your tickets in advance at CAPA’s Outreach Center (714 14th St., Port Royal), Murr Printing, Collectors Antique Mall, Hilton Garden Inn, Sandbar and Grill, Big Joe’s BBQ, The Quality Inn or Bangs Salon.
