Come out and enjoy a FREE concert by this wonderful local musician as part of our Meadowmont Music Series! Jon Shain is a veteran singer-songwriter who has been turning heads for years with his words, his fiery acoustic guitar work and his evolved musical style – combining improvised piedmont blues with bluegrass, swing, and ragtime. This family-friendly show will end your holiday week with even more fun! This event is open to the community, so please bring your family and friends, a chair and a blanket, and a picnic — or enjoy dinner from one of the many fine restaurants in Meadowmont Village before the show.
