The third annual Brookhaven Cherry Blossom Festival will boast a solid music lineup when it returns to that city’s Blackburn Park on Saturday and Sunday, March 25th and 26th.
In addition to an arts & crafts market, a stunt dog show, a car show, a pet parade, children’s village and yummy fare from an arsenal of food trucks, the fest will offer a wide variety of live music, from pop and rock to blues, funk, reggae and Latin offerings.
Singer-songwriter Wesley Cook and old-timey revivalists Blair Crimmins & the Hookers top Saturday’s lineup, with classic rock band Housebroken and funk act Dyn-O-Mite also plugging in. A gang of aspiring young musicians from the Atlanta School of Rock will also perform, with a dance ensemble from the nearby Marist School kicking things off at 10:30 a.m.
Ed Roland & the Sweet Tea project headline Sunday’s bill, preceded by soul-funksters Gurufish, blues stalwarts The Breeze Kings and Latin act Willie Ziavino & the C.O.T. Representing the neighborhood, the Montgomery Elementary Mustang Chorus will start the day at 11 a.m.
Blackburn Park is located just off I-285 at 3493 Ashford Dunwoody Road. Admission to the Cherry Blossom Festival is free. For more info, visit brookcherryfest.org.
