The Vineyard Band bringing sounds of twang to Jonesboro Saturday

JONESBORO — Lee Street Park will be filled with the picking and twanging sounds of country and folk music this weekend.

The city of Jonesboro will continue its free summer concert series at the park Saturday night with The Vineyard Band, a Macon-based band that — according to its website — counts a wide range of performers, including Pink Floyd and Patsy Cline, among its influences

“We’ve never had them here before,” Mayor Joy Day said. “It’s a young band, with an old soul.”

The concert will begin at 7 p.m. Attendees are welcome to bring their food, drinks and chairs or blankets to sit on during the concert.
