Promoter Mo Lutz has teamed up with Athens-Clarke County for a planned series of family-friendly afternoon concerts at Memorial Park, and the first, set for Sunday, features an impressive lineup of local and touring talent. Hammond B3 legend Ike Stubblefield makes his return to the local scene, and fixture Caroline Aiken will perform a set of her spiritually charged guitar tunes. The touring artist on the bill, California-based singer-songwriter Natalie Gelman, has earned national praise for her lovely voice and centrist folk-pop originals. There will also be a silent auction at the concert, featuring restaurant gift certificates, guitars, concert tickets and more. Proceeds from the auction and donations collected at the event will benefit local nonprofits Nuçi’s Space and Guitars Not Guns.
