Celebrate National Parks at Canyon Center on August 20


Our National Parks are turning 100 years old this month and you're invited to the birthday party! The JSU Canyon Center has partnered with the National Park Service and Little River Arts Council to present a Canyon Concert on Aug. 20, 6 p.m., at the Canyon Center in Fort Payne. Enjoy this free outdoor concert, under the stars, featuring the following musical acts:  

  • Them Dirty Roses - Born and raised in the Bama clay, these boys are as Southern as they come. Influenced by Lynyrd Skynyrd and Hank Williams Jr., these four Gadsden natives are now based in Nashville and touring the South with their Southern rock vibe.
  • Marc Womack - This Dekalb County musician writes and performs his own songs in addition to covering a variety of classic tunes. He is active in the Northeast Alabama area, playing shows at many different venues - typically as one-half of the musical duo, Robby and Marc, with Robby Jordan.
  • Jacob Stiefel and the Truth - On the heels of his third release, "Memphis Sessions," Stiefel is building steam and isn't planning on slowing down anytime soon. The Fort Payne native mixes a variety of genres - Southern rock, country, rock & roll, blues, bluegrass, gospel and more.

The concert is free and open to the public. Gates open at 5 p.m. for lawn seating and the first act begins at 6 p.m. Bring lawn chairs and blankets for seating. Outside coolers are welcome, but food vendors will be on-site. The Canyon Center Gift Shop will be open and special merchandise from the bands will also be available for purchase. Parking donations will be requested, but not required.
