Friday, May 8 6:00-10:00pm

Chris McGinnis (Country-Rock group) will showcase his unique brand of country-rock to the TGIF Stage on Friday, May 8th. Grab a chair or blanket and head to the Courthouse Square in downtown Morganton for a FREE concert under the stars. Food and beverage vendors will open at 6:00pm and the music plays from 7:00-10:00pm. The TGIF Concert Series runs every Friday in May, June and July (except July 3rd). We will see you on the square!

Chris McGinnis is a songwriter from Morganton, North Carolina. Since he was 13 years old, Chris has performed in groups ranging from rock n roll cover bands to Flamenco guitar ensembles. By the time he finished high school, Chris had soaked up the influence of Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Tom Petty, and John Prine - songwriters who are all equally musicians and poets.

Drawing from his Appalachian background and love of music and literature, Chris' songs utilize a unique brand of country-rock to tell tales of starry-eyed troubadours and working-class romantics.
