Imagine a world in which compact discs from local musicians were readily available to borrow, any time you want, for free.
It’s not that crazy of a dream, but it’s also not a dream.
Instead, it’s sort of the idea behind a new program called That Fayetteville Sound created by the Creative Economy Action Group.
The program launched back in June with 17 CDs created by local musicians made available to check out at the Fayetteville Public Library. Now, a couple months later, more than 50 local CDs are available.
CEAG will celebrate the launch (and early success) of the new program with a free concert and panel discussion on Sunday, Aug. 28 at the library’s Walker Community Room.
Expect performances by local songwriters Shannon Wurst, Bryan Hembree, Adam Cox, and Chase and Missy Gipson.
The musicians will also participate in a discussion led by CEAG chair Christopher Spencer.
The two-hour celebration is set for 2 p.m. Sunday, which also fits nicely between the Fayetteville Roots Festival songwriters’ brunch (10 a.m. to 2 p.m.), and finale concert ( 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.) at Greenhouse Grille.
The event is free to attend, and open to the public.
