“Athens In Harmony” is back by popular demand! This uplifting and powerful concert of duets starts at 7 PM at the 40 Watt. To improve race relations and break racial barriers within our community, organizers have paired musical artists across musical and racial boundaries from gospel, rock, hip-hop, Latin, and soul to encourage unity through music. Attendees will witness some of Athens’ most talented musicians singing duets to inspire social change.
The proceeds from the event will benefit the Athens Anti-Discrimination Movement, a local grassroots human rights group dedicated to education, cultural inclusion and social reform.
Tickets: $15 in advance; $20 at the door.
Kids 15 & under: $10.

Grassland String Band is tearing up the Southeast! Their high energy and harmonic perfection will thrill! Catch these guys while they are still local!
Jill Knight is a decorated and celebrated singer songwriter, originally from Savannah, Ga, now living in the beautiful Cambria, California. Her voice is one of the best I’ve heard, and her songs are portraits, some beautiful some funky, along with her masterful guitarwork.
Join us as we record these amazing performances and interviews.
