Atlanta’s local community radio station, WRFG 89.3 FM, is hosting its third Annual Americana in the Park celebration on Sunday, March 4, from 12:00pm to 6:00pm at the Park Tavern in Piedmont Park.

WRFG is an independent, listener-supported, community radio station located in Little Five Points.  For the past 43 years, WRFG has been a source of progressive information and handpicked music in the city. The lineup also includes four great bands for your listening and dancing pleasure:

  • Jackson County Line – A 5-piece band featuring the lush pedal steel and cello fans have come to love and simple gorgeous songwriting mixed with a healthy dose of Americana.
  • Kitty Rose and the Rattlers – Original rockabilly from Atlanta guaranteed to make you shake something – just not too hard!
  • Russ Still and the Moonshiners – “Country/Rock blended with compelling lyrics, interesting melodies and fresh arrangements.” The Georgia Music Association has named them Best Country Band for two years in a row.
  • Captain Trips & The Sunstroke Serenaders – Bringing you the music of the Grateful Dead! If you like to dance, party, sing, and enjoy the music of the Dead, then there’s nothing more to be said.
