A new venue for concert-starved area music lovers kicks off its live concert series from 7 to 10 p.m. on March 19 at West Milford Farm.
“Fridays at the Farm” will host 12 open-air concerts through September 17, with socially-distanced lawn and pavilion seats for up to 160 guests per event at 7938 Ball Ground Road, Cumming (Cherokee County).
Singer songwriter Kurt Lee Wheeler opens the season with his raw portrayal of life in the American Southeast. Tickets for this concert range from $39 to $44, which includes a food voucher for Dominic’s Food Trucks of Ball Ground, catering the event. Outside food is allowed, but guests will still receive a food voucher with a ticket purchase that includes two big NY-style slices of wood-oven pizza or other entrée option.
“Our concerts will give the community an opportunity to safely experience live music, while supporting our local artists,” said Chad Milford, co-owner of the farm. “To best enjoy the experience, guests with lawn seats should bring their own chair; open-air VIP pavilion tickets include chair and table seating.”
Attendees must be 21-years or older and may bring their own beer or wine, but a no-liquor rule will be enforced, according to Milford. A security officer will be present at all events.
