WHITMIRE — The Tyger-Enoree River Alliance (TERA) concluded its fall concert series on Saturday.
TERA held a free concert for all ages each Saturday in October at the Strand Amphitheater in Whitmire’s Heritage Park. Those who performed included The Overmountain Men featuring David Childers and the Durbin Creek String Band the first week; Michael Reno Harrell the second week; Christina Raines & The Square Roots and Jon Durham the third week; and Mill Billy Blues and Albatross on Saturday. Events also included food and games in the park before music began.
“The first annual TERA fall concert series was a great success for TERA, The Town of Whitmire and the extended communities in Newberry and Union counties,” said TERA co-founder Jon Durham. “The entertainment line up was really outstanding and represented a diverse range of music. I think we had a little something for everyone.”
Sponsors for the events included Roche Pharmacy, WNCW 88.7, Piggly Wiggly, Southeastern Wildlife and Property Services.
“I can’t thank our sponsors enough,” Durham said, adding that the event would not have been possible without John Roche and Roche Pharmacy. “The Town of Whitmire, Mayor Hollingsworth and the entire town council were extremely supportive as well and we thank them. We look forward to more exciting events at the Strand Amphitheater in Heritage Park.”
TERA’s mission is to promote the health of the Tyger and Enoree rivers. For more information about TERA, visit www.tygerenoree.com.
