Franklin County is in for a treat this weekend, when “Nashville Comes to Carrabelle” takes over Fathoms. During this event, Fathoms is partnering with Dan Hodges, Music, LLC to present two evenings full of great music, performed by writers whose work has made it to the stage via some big names.
The event is Free. It begins at 8:00 p.m. each night (Friday, August 15 and Saturday, August 16). There will be two sets each evening that will feature all artists performing original material. The third and final set will be all of the artists performing cover material while you dance!
