Enjoy the first concert in the outdoor amphitheater at Sewell Mill Library & Cultural Center on Friday evening, July 13th. Kicking off the free 2018 Summer Concert Series sponsored by the Cobb County Library Foundation are Kienan Dietrich featuring the Wildfire Orchestra, Chasing Lovely, and the Good Graces!
Kienan Dietrich (from Sarah & the Safe Word) featuring the Wildfire Orchestra: “Baby, I’m the best kind of wrong,” croons vocalist Sarah Rose on Sarah and the Safe Word’s latest album, Strange Doings in the Night. She means it. With a sound that speaks nostalgically of days gone by and a future that never came, Sarah and the Safe Word promise an experience like no other. Exploring sounds reminiscent of cabaret, vaudeville, southern gothicism, swing, and – of course – rock and roll, the band urges enthusiastic victi- er, listeners – to step inside, get strapped in, and prepare for one very, very, peculiar evening.
Chasing Lovely: Folk-pop duo Chasing Lovely combine haunting harmonies, powerful melodies, and insightful lyrics to create a truly captivating acoustic performance. With their latest EP, “Things We Don’t Talk About” (July 2017), they candidly open up about both personal and cultural conflict, addressing subjects normally considered taboo. Chasing Lovely’s mission is to provoke thought, promote understanding, and capture both glimmers of light and darkness as they share the deeply moving human experience through song.
the Good Graces: the Good Graces is an indie-folk/Americana collective fronted by singer-songwriter Kim Ware and based in Atlanta, GA. Since its inception in 2006, after Kim picked up an acoustic guitar at the late Lakewood Antiques Market that summer, tGG has toured up and down the east coast, down to Texas, over to California, and performed at such festivals as 30A, NXNE, and the Athens Pop Festival. In 2015, Kim’s song “Cold in California” caught the attention of the Indigo Girls, and the band was invited by the renowned duo to support some midwest and southeast shows during their summer tour.
