JEFFERSON — In partnership with the Ashe County Arts Council, Steve Lewis and Bluegrass, Inc. took to the Blevins Stage at Ashe Park on Friday, June 18, to kick off the second concert in the Friday’s in the Park Concert Series.

Lewis, a native and long-time teacher in Ashe County, brought in nearly 400 guests at the Friday night concert. Musiclovers were provided with concessions and the option to chow-down on Kristin’s Hook’d on Smoke food truck.

As the summer hits its peak, the Arts Council will hold two more Friday’s in the Park concerts.

The Burnette Sisters and Colin Ray will be the next musicians to hit the stage on July 16 at 7 p.m. The final concert will be legendary Wayne Henderson on August 20 at 7 p.m.

All concerts are free to the public but do require registration beforehand. To register for a concert, visit
