STAFF REPORTS
Published on Wednesday, October 12, 2011

Mac Arnold & Plate Full O’ Blues will perform at Greer City Park Thursday 5-9 p.m. RJ Grady is a special guest performer on bagpipes.
Blues in the Park, sponsored by City of Greer and Rhythm & Brews is a free event that promotes Arnold’s I Can Do Anything Foundation. 
Arnold and Greer’s Max Hightower, musician and band general manager, formed the non-profit to take the Blues in the Schools program around the country to teach students, who never played an instrument, to come on stage with band members to try the drums or harmonica.
One of the program’s highlights will be a workshop on gas can guitars, a signature instrument Arnold builds and performs. Other band members will discuss instruments and art.
Crafts, games and food available throughout the festival.
