Concert at Cox Capitol benefits Historic Macon

For the past two Decembers, Sean Pritchard has organized a concert for friends and fellow music-lovers to get together downtown before his birthday on New Year’s Eve, but this year’s concert, happening Saturday, is about raising money for the Historic Macon Foundation.

“With the continued work that (Historic Macon has) done in the community, it felt like an appropriate organization to have the show benefit,” said Pritchard, senior editor for www.TheBlue

“What we’re really hoping is that younger people are going to see that Historic Macon is involved in events like this,” Pritchard said. “It’s not the type of organization that you have to be older and have a ton of money to make any difference in.”

T. Hardy Morris, frontman of Dead Confederate from Athens, is set to rock with the Hardknocks. Morris’ music is a perfect fit for the Historic Macon fundraiser because of his album, “Places in Peril,” which features songs that were recorded in places on the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation’s list of significant structures in need of awareness and repair, Pritchard said.

Also headlining the concert is Roadkill Ghost Choir, a Florida band that has been to Macon twice.

“(Roadkill Ghost Choir) is a great kind of Southern-gothic, indie band,” Pritchard said. “They have a lot of influences from the Allman Brothers and ’70s kind of acts.”

Local band the sunDollars also will perform for the third year in a row.
