Washboard Jackson, Live Music and the Locals Last Stand
Tis the weekend for live music, supporting one of our own and throwing down before the summer season arrives here in South Walton.
Be sure and start the weekend early on Thursday evening by coming out to Trebeache‘ in Blue Moutain Beach and supporting one of 30a’s living legends, Franko “Washboard” Jackson. Take part in the raffles and silent auctions with music starting at 7PM and going until midnight. $10 gets you in the door for some great music from the likes of the Steenos, Dread Clampitt and Hubba Hubba. $25 gets you all the music and food for the evening as you sing and dance the night away. Hope to see you there for a great cause!
Still haven’t got your fill of live music? Visit the Hub on 30a on Friday for the Nashville Songwriters Florida Sunshine Tour. Come enjoy the sounds of Earl Bud Lee and Tommy Barnes starting at 8PM. Shows are free and open to the public. Lots of great food options from Crave Roadside burgers and Red’s Chicken Shack.
Enjoy a look back as Hands Across the Sand founder Dave Rauschkolb discusses the idea behind the movement.
Come out and join Hands Across the Sand on Saturday at Ed Walline Park Beach Access from 11AM-1PM. Hands Across the Sand is an annual event held across Florida and around the world to bring awareness to the dangers in burning fossil fuels and to help shed light on alternative, clean and renewable energy sources.
