GRANGEVILLE The first in the Free Summer Concert Series will take place this Thursday, July 14, 6 p.m., at Pioneer (City) Park.
The Chad Bramlet Band out of Lewiston will offer country tunes to concert-goers.
Bramlet is a Nashville recording country music singer and songwriter who has traveled the United States and abroad performing.
He has performed in front of large crowds, opening for country music acts such as Rodney Atkins, Craig Campbell and Trick Pony. He is currently in the process of recording his third album in Nashville, set to be released in the early spring of 2017.
Bramlet regularly meets with youth of the Lewis/Clark Valley as a mentor and speaks on recovery from addiction believing strongly in being an active part of volunteering in the community. He is a native to Lewiston where he currently resides with his wife and nine children.
Bramlet’s story is one of redemption he said. He is a former drug addict who lost everything when he was redeemed.
“There is always hope,” he said.
The concert is suitable for all ages and attendees are invited to bring chairs, blankets and a picnic dinner. Remember, no dogs are allowed in the park. The event is sponsored by Grangeville Arts, Inc., and The Grangeville Chamber of Commerce. Although there is no cost to attend, donations will be accepted to help with entertainment expenses.
