COOKEVILLE –Music and lunch will come together three Fridays in October for the annual Brown Bag Lunch concert series at the Cookeville Depot Museum.
Performers include Three Little Bops on Oct. 5 and Jeremy Fritts on Oct. 12. The Oct. 19 concert will be announced at a later date. Shows are 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. Admission is free.
“The Brown Bag Lunch series is an opportunity to enjoy some great music outdoors and kick off the fall season,” Chad McDonald, Leisure Services cultural arts superintendent, said.
The series is sponsored by the Cookeville Arts Council and presented by the Cookeville Department of Leisure Services.
Lunches from Blue Coast Burrito will be available to purchase on site beginning at 11 a.m.
“The atmosphere for these concerts is unique,” McDonald said. “Enjoying music while having lunch in the middle of the city’s busyness is a great way to spend a Friday afternoon.”
Limited seating on the museum’s east patio is provided, but attendees may also bring lawn chairs.
Brown Bag concerts feature a variety of musical styles that appeal to a wide range of attendees, from local business people to retirees to students.
McDonald is pleased with the lineup so far.
“Three Little Bops is a talented group of local musicians who love to play a variety of jazz,” he said. “Jeremy Fritts comes from a diverse musical background. With a career varying from performance composition to concert promotion to instruction, and interests ranging from bluegrass to jazz to gospel, he has compiled numerous musical credentials.”
