Country music/Americana star Lacy Green to headline free Sunday, Aug. 5, concert at Tanglewood
Winston-Salem, NC (July 20, 2018) – Lacy Green, country music/Americana star who is originally from Pilot Mountain, will perform in a free Summer Park Series concert at Tanglewood Park on Sunday, Aug. 5. An earlier scheduled concert by Green was cancelled due to inclement weather. Becca Rae, who is a mainstream country music singer-songwriter based out of Southern Pines, North Carolina and best known for her stop-and-stare vocals and emotionally charged lyrics, will open.
This is the third year of the free Summer Park Series Concerts which are held in Forsyth County’s two extraordinary public parks, Triad Park and Tanglewood Park. The concerts are a collaboration between the County of Forsyth and The Arts Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County.
“Lacy Green has a great local following, and we are delighted we could reschedule this concert,” said David Plyler, Chair, Forsyth County Commissioners. “We encourage residents of the county to come out Sunday, August 5, and enjoy free, top-notch entertainment in the family-friendly environment of Tanglewood Park.”
At just 25, North Carolina native and UNC-CH graduate Lacy Green is already a seasoned vocalist, a Music Row staff songwriter and a consummate performer. Growing up in Pilot Mountain, Green started her musical journey at 13 after her dad taught her how to play “Blackbird” on his 1969 Martin guitar. She spent the next several years honing her performance and songwriting skills while performing around North Carolina and recording indie projects that eventually caught Nashville’s attention.
At 22, she left NC to take a position as a staff songwriter on Music Row. In 2015 she released her latest EP, “Nice Things” which showcases her sharp songwriting voice as well as her soulful vocals. www.lacygreen.com.
Becca Rae has established herself as a force in the local music scene. She has released two original albums, and her third album is set to drop on August 16, 2018. Her most impressive live performances include opening for country music legends Loretta Lynn and Montgomery Gentry, as well as a showcase at “Billy Bob’s Texas,” the world’s largest honky-tonk.

Refreshments such as soda, water, beer and wine are available with all proceeds supporting the Arts Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County. No outside alcohol is permitted.
