The Main Street Live summer concert series kicks off this Friday with the powerful vocals of Faith Jackson.
Jackson is a five-time nominee for the Georgia Music Awards Female Vocalist of the Year and two-time nominee for the Georgia Country Awards. In February 2012, she won the Georgia Music Awards Female Country Vocalist of the Year.
Gov. Bill Lee has lifted the ban on outdoor entertainment venues to allow concerts along with a set of guidelines focusing on health and public safety at such events. Using those guidelines, Main Street McMinnville has implemented the following:
• A row of signs will mark a 15-foot gap between performer and first row of audience members. It is critical to maintain this gap to keep guests and performers safe throughout the concert.
• Each family or social group is asked to maintain a 6-foot gap from other groups. Provided will be one pre-measured nursery string per chair. Tie pre-measured nursery string to one chair leg. Tie opposite end to the chair leg of the family/social group next to you.
• Wearing masks is encouraged. If one is needed, they will be available for $1.
• Two hand washing stations will be available, as well as hand sanitizing stations.
Signs will be posted reminding attendees of social distancing, hand washing, and other health and safety guidelines.
“Main Street McMinnville is excited to be able to bring you Main Street Live 2020,
said Main Street McMinnville executive director Teresa Prober. “Though we are excited and looking forward to enjoying great live music, help MSM help you to stay safe by following the guidelines.
Be mindful and respectful of others and their space, and bring your patience as this will be a learning experience for all of us.”
The country/ rock performer takes the stage at 7 p.m. Concerts are offered on the West Lawn of Security Federal Savings Bank on Main Street. Food vendors open at 6 p.m. The Vietnam Veterans of America, Royce Davenport Chapter 1112, will be collecting non-perishable food for Warren County Emergency Food Bank.
