As the weather warms, spring events continue to fill local calendars. Several events, ranging from concerts and festivals to markets and charity golf tournaments, are set for the coming week.
Little Skynyrd Concert
A Lynyrd Skynyrd tribute band, based in North Texas, is scheduled to perform in Roanoke on Thursday evening.
The free Little Skynyrd concert, sponsored by the Arts Council Northeast and the City of Roanoke, will be 7-8 p.m. at Austin Street Plaza, at the corner of Oak and Austin streets. It’s the first of the city’s Evenings on Oak Street concert series.
The concert was rescheduled from March 2, when inclement winter weather forced the delay.
"The band is comprised of seasoned musicians who grew up playing Skynyrd, love playing their music and strive to keep their music alive," says a news release. "Their goal is to make you feel like you are back in the '70s at a Lynyrd Skynyrd concert."
