The Kiwanis Club of Erwin, with
support from the Cherokee National Forest Service, presents the 20th
annual series of the popular Campfire Programs at the Rock Creek
Recreation Area Amphitheater, near Erwin, at 8 every Friday night
beginning tonight and running through Aug. 9.
The programs include a variety of
local country, bluegrass and contemporary Christian music groups. As
always, the programs are absolutely free, including a marshmallow roast
with marshmallows and spits provided.
Opening the series tonight is the
local band Raven Wood.
These guys played together on and off for several
years, but after testing other musical avenues they decided to bring it
all back together the way it should be.
Members of Raven Wood have
opened for artists such as Ricochet, Gary Allen, Jake Owen and Gretchen
Wilson. A song Jason Tilson and Adam Clouse wrote, “Faster,” was used
for Track Side at Bristol Motor Speedway. Members of the band are Tilson
on vocals and guitar, Clouse on vocals and guitar, Jeffrey Crowe on
cajon, drums, percussion and Stacey Peake on bass.
In case of rain, programs will be moved just down the road to Rock Creek Presbyterian Church.
Directions: To get there, exit I-26
in Erwin at Exit 36. Turn left (east) and proceed to the first red
light. Turn right on North Main Street, then turn left on Highway 395.
Proceed less than 2 miles to Rock Creek Recreation Area, then follow
signs to the Campfire Program.
