Guess who’s returning to #FridaysAtTheFountain? Marshall local and fan-favorite: Norman Light!
Performing at previous FATF’s with Chameleon and Rae of Light, we’re excited to have him close out this year’s event by bringing back Norman Light & Friends. The only thing guaranteed is that there’ll be a night of good music, with fantastic musicians. Playing songs that everyone knows from a wide range of genres, every show brings a different line-up that makes each experience unique and memorable. Don’t forget to join us for our last show at the fountain – August 18th at 7pm EST!
Please give a warm welcome to FATF alum, Norman Light & Friends, and we’ll see you August 18th at 7pm EST!
THE YPC: What kind of music/instruments do you enjoy playing the most? NL: Favorite instrument – guitar of course 🙂 And music? I love playing songs from all eras and all genres. I like playing a mix so that the youngest kid will find a song they like, all the way up to the grandparents enjoying the music together.
THE YPC: What is your funniest memory about playing a show or being on tour? NL: Too many to remember, but so many funny times driving back and forth to Florida with my band Rae of Light.
THE YPC: What are you most excited about for FATF? NL: Praying that we actually play at the actual fountain. We’ve been scheduled twice before: once it got canceled, and the other we relocated to Dark Horse. Still a great show/venue, but not the fountain!
THE YPC: What is your biggest achievement thus far? NL: Writing our own songs that we’re proud of.
THE YPC: If you could make an instrument out of a piece of food, what would it be? NL: A pineapple-tar.
The sounds of summer are here! The Youngish Professionals Committee is thrilled to announce the return of our community concert series, Fridays at the Fountain, featuring 5 amazing live performances at the Brooks Memorial Fountain! Join us starting June 23rd (with a chair and a blanket) at the fountain.
Welcoming back a Fridays at the Fountain favorite: Norman Light (& Friends)! Bring the whole family and head to Brooks Memorial Fountain for a live performance – July 15 at 7pm EST. Please bring your own chair or blanket.
Norman Light is a Marshall local that has performed at FATF previously with Chameleon and Rae of Light, but this will be a new vibe! With Norman Light & Friends the only thing guaranteed is that there’ll be a night of good music, with fantastic musicians. “Which” musicians is the question! Maybe a singer-friend will show up? Maybe a harmonica player will step-in? Maybe a keyboard player will play that solo you always loved? Playing songs that everyone knows from a wide range of genres, every show brings a different line-up that makes each show unique and memorable.
The Fridays at the Fountain concert series is set to return in-person at the Brooks Memorial Fountain on July 9th with local favorites, Danae & The Grind. Running every other Friday through the end of the summer, the series will feature 4 additional local musical acts including Chameleon (7/23), Rae of Light (8/6), Kjell Croce (8/20) and Mike Reed (9/3). There is no cost to attend. Please bring your own chair or blanket.
Last summer, the series was presented entirely virtually via livestream. “We’re looking forward to being able to bring the concerts in-person again this year. As our community is emerging from being largely at home during 2020, it’s a great way to rebuild and develop connections,” says Jennifer Conley Darling, one of the event organizers. The concerts will again be live streamed so that those who can’t attend in-person can still enjoy the music.
All the concerts will take place at the Brooks Memorial Fountain and be live streamed through Choose Marshall and YPC’s Facebook at 7pm EST.
