Young Pine Belt musicians to perform live in Teen Music Showcase
HATTIESBURG, Miss. (WDAM) - Mississippi Music Inc. and T Bones Records and Cafe are teaming up to host an event which supports young musicians.
On Friday from 4-6 p.m., they’ll host a “Teen Music Showcase” at T Bones.
It’s part of FestivalSouth and it will give musicians, ages 13-19, a chance to perform live.
There’s no charge to participate. Teens can perform solo or in groups.
It’s a free event for the public.
“We are always encouraging our young people to come out and perform, get used to being in front of a crowd, so we would love to come have people to sign up,” said Carl Johnston, manager of Mississippi Music in Hattiesburg.
“(We’ll take) as many as we can fit in that two-hour span, if we go over, we’ll still let you come in and perform, so play your guitar, play your harmonica, you can sing, whatever you want to do on a musical instrument, we’re ready for you.”
FestivalSouth is a multi-week arts festival that runs through June 26.
