Sundays on the River

The Sundays of the River concerts at Chattahoochee Nature Center are a really good summer evening event. They host one a month in good weather, and the final event will be September 8th, when famous blues singer Shemekia Copeland takes to the pavilion stage.

Shemekia is the famous blues singer whose latest album, America’s Child won this years award as Best Blues Music Album. She’s been on tour with her crew for quite a while and is a woman who knows no boundaries. She will be in Texas just prior to hitting Roswell, and then she hits the road again all over the country.

If you didn’t get to see Sam Lewis and his band this month, then this is final gig for this summer. There are seats under the pavilion or you can bring folding chairs and blankets and loll about on the adjacent green. And, it is a perfect place for the picnic. Bring whatever you wish for fine dining, and if you run short of libations they also have a concession stand.

Help is available for those with mobility problems, and they do a good job of discouraging annoying insects in the performance area. But, you might wish to have some Off or an After Bite stick with you if you are pretty sensitive.

The facility is right on Willeo Road, and more info is at
