Now, he is taking the stage at one of Macon’s best known music venues. 18 and up. 10 p.m. $15.

SATURDAY AT THE COX CAPITOL THEATRE

When Shane Bridges and Josh Carson formed Acoustic Workshop, they had no idea it would lead to 20 years worth of playing music that brings people together. However, that’s exactly what happened. Now, the annual Thanksgiving-time Acoustic Workshop concert is as much looked forward to as the turkey on the table at dinner time. It’s has come to represent a time when old friends who haven’t seen each other in a long time get together to laugh in good spirits. This year, they invite Newnan’s Leonard Washington to join them. Under 18 must be accompanied by a guardian. 8 p.m. $15.
