Editor's note: This event has been canceled due to rain.
Riverside Cemetery’s second annual Down by the Riverside musical revue features a monumental lineup of local music.
Saturday’s concert includes headliner and blues legend Robert Lee Coleman, a Macon native who has played with Percy Sledge and James Brown.
Singer-songwriter Louise Warren, who has played with Jimmy Hall and Chuck Leavell, also will perform, as will Joshua Neal, Rewind Retry and musicians from the Otis Music Camp, including Failing Acts of Society, said Steve Bell, interim director of the Riverside Cemetery Conservancy.
“Using local musicians gives some great exposure to some of the great talent we have here. We don’t need to go outside of Macon to find great music,” Bell said.
Guests are invited to bring picnics for the family-friendly event, and pets are welcome.
“It is a cemetery, so we just ask that people be respectful of the space and take out whatever they bring in,” Bell said. “It’s a space of beauty, and we want people to come out and walk the river trail and just enjoy the space.”
