**** Total Solar Eclipse Viewing Party at Rabun Gap-Nacoochee School
Monday, August 21st – 11:00am – 4:00pm
Do you want to be in the Path of Totality for the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse? If so, the only place in Georgia to do that is Rabun County, Georgia. Rabun Gap-Nacoochee School is graciously providing the perfect location for the viewing of this spectacular and for most of us a once in a lifetime event.
During this viewing party there will be music, food, and screens set up across the viewing area to watch as a NASA feed is shown with experts walking us through what is happening as the eclipse touches each state beginning on the west coast and comes across before it leaves on the east coast. You will not want to be anywhere else for this event.
Cedar Hill will be the feature band for this spectacular event. Cedar Hill is Atlanta’s most entertaining bluegrass band. This group of professional musicians features four lead vocalists, tight three and four part harmony, and skillful picking on the banjo, guitar, mandolin, fiddle, dobro and electric bass. But, it is their versatility, their “out of the box” creativity, and their timely use of humor and comedy that sets Cedar Hill apart from other bands. Cedar Hill performances display unique arrangements of bluegrass standards, and popular songs from other genres of music, with a few surprise twists and turns. When you go to a Cedar Hill performance, expect to be entertained, but also expect the unexpected. Below is a sample of just one of their sounds.
Admission – $5 per person, protective logo’d glasses are included in this ticket price.
