The Sautee Nacoochee Center will host their summer Lawn Party starting at 6:00 pm on June 16, 2012.  Bring your lawn chairs and blankets to the outdoor stage for an evening of food, fun, dance and music. Entertainment will be provided with previews of the Community Chorale, Headwaters: Didja Hear? cast, and then Atlanta Ballet’s Wabi Sabi, and the Kenney-Blackmon String Band will delight the crowd with ballet and bluegrass music. 

Atlanta Ballet’s Wabi Sabi was created by Atlanta Ballet veteran company dancer John Welker in 2011, Wabi Sabi seeks to push the boundaries of ballet through the creation of new works by the next generation of choreographic talent. Wabi Sabi allows Atlanta Ballet to embark on presenting new work that enhances the scope of the existing repertory, while offering new artistic challenges to its company members. Wabi Sabi performances are public, world premiere concerts performed at Atlanta Ballet’s Michael C. Carlos Dance Centre and other venues throughout the city.

Athens-based acoustic group The Kenney-Blackmon String Band updates a traditional genre with fresh rhythms. The mix of multigenerational perspectives and modern lyricism excites long-time Americana listeners and invites new audiences per the band’s infusion of hard-driving fiddle, syrupy balladry and syncopated jazz. With Jason Kenney on vocals, guitar, mandolin and banjo; Noel Blackmon on vocals, guitar and mandolin; David Blackmon on fiddle; and Chris Enghauser on double bass, KBSB provides unique arrangements of classic folk tunes, original dirt-stomping instrumentals, cry-to-sleep love anthems and even rare revivals of songs from the British Isles.
