The Mailboxes and Sarah Forde will perform Saturday in the final concert of the Murray Arts Council’s 2020 Concert in the Park series.
The show starts at 7 p.m. Admission is free. Bring a blanket or a chair to enjoy the concert. The 2020 Concert in the Park series is sponsored by Mohawk Industries.
The Mailboxes is an art-pop band from Chattanooga, Tennessee. Members Jillian and Logan Ivey, also known as The Purple People for their customary lavender clothing, are creative partners who also happen to be married to one another. Jillian plays piano, sings and writes catchy indie pop melodies. Logan plays the drums and looks cool. They like touring across the country in their van and thru-hiking in the mountains. They just released their newest album titled Inside Outside last year through an art project that combined a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail with a national tour.
“The Mailboxes were supposed to be our featured concert for the 2nd Annual Chatsworth Ukulele Festival. Jillian plays a mean ukulele, so we thought they were a great tie-in. When we had to cancel the Uke Festival due to COVID restrictions, the Music Committee of Murray Arts Council decided to leave The Mailboxes on as the final concert of the 2020 season and add an opening act which we are proud to announce is Sarah Forde,” said Jake Sane.
“Sarah Forde is a talented singer, songwriter and guitarist who hails from Ellijay, so she is practically a local,” continued Sane. “We are so glad to add her to our line up for Oct. 3.”
