Summer Music Series
1pm - 3pm
We are excited to welcome The Handshakers to the Garden as we continue our summer concert series on June 17th. The heart of The Handshakers beats with two gifted, Georgia-born songwriters, Mike Bynum and Michael Walker. They write about the southern world they left behind.
The Handshakers’ Americana/alt-country music revolves around the sound of Walker’s sultry electric guitar, Bynum’s driving acoustic rhythm guitar and Aleister Paige’s atmospheric pedal steel guitar. And then there’s Walker’s and Bynum’s soaring– and sometimes gritty – vocals and harmonies. The simple, elegant melodies played by Walker, Bynum and Paige are complemented by the steady, subtle grooves of electric bassist Gary Davidson and drummer Paul DeMark.
These concerts are held the first and third Sunday through August and are a wonderful opportunity to experience the Garden in a new way. Bring your family, a picnic lunch and lounge on the lawn and take in the sounds of local bands before touring the Garden or the Butterfly House.
