As the months begin to lead us into a sweltering Savannah summer again, we’ve still a little time left of picture perfect weekends.The end of May brings this town such a chance to be part of something bigger, enjoy live music from some of our favorite local performers, and do it all under the canopy of Telfair Square. The photos in this preview are of the Trinity sanctuary, but this event is an outdoor festival & celebration.
The Last Hymn and Hurrah promises to be a great afternoon & early evening concert. Scheduled to appear are Velvet Caravan, Waits & Co., City Hotel, Payne Bridges, and The TrainWrecks. Amy Condon of Savannah Magazine has written a really nice article about the event in the magazine’s latest issue, which can be found on newsstands currently. The short version of the story is that historic Trinity United Methodist Church which provides the space for Trinity Sanctuary Concerts is giving Enoch Hendry a grand send-off as he retires after 14 years as head pastor of the church, and 40 years in the ministry. Enoch has always been known to be a fan of live music, and was of major support in establishing the series. Have no fear, the music at Trinity will continue after his retirement. The bands that have been regular performers at the sanctuary concert series were only too happy to agree to play the event, and lend their talent to help raise money for the church’s preservation fund.
The $25 ticket price includes admittance to Telfair Square and the streets that will be blocked off the day of the event, BBQ, non-alcoholic beverages, and performances by the musicians listed above. Children under 10 are free with an accompanying paid entrance, and blankets are fine to bring in for spreading out in the park.
*Beer from Southbound Brewing Co. & wine will also be available for an extra cost.
