The 2020 Art Park Series is just around the corner.
The event kicks off Friday, Jan. 17 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Tuscawilla Art Park, located at 213 NE 5th St. It will feature Little Tybee, a group named for a small island off the coast of Georgia that has been a mainstay in Atlanta’s burgeoning music scene since forming in 2009.
Little Tybee’s self-titled fourth studio album is considered to be the group’s most ambitious work and it fully crystallizes the Atlanta sextet’s brand of dynamic and multi-layered dream folk. The group has developed somewhat of a cult following for its celebrated live sets and has opened for acts including Victor Wooten, Kurt Vile, Of Montreal, Maps and Atlases, Hundred Waters and many more.
Little Tybee’s compositions blend together psych-folk, progressive rock, jazz and Motown for a dense tapestry of sound that surrounds and hits all the senses. The songs begin as delicate creations, etched around the sinewy acoustic guitar and vocals of singer-songwriter and band leader Brock Scott. They are then fleshed out by the eight-string guitar virtuoso Josh Martin, the classical flare of Nirvana Kelly’s violin, the deep pocket grooves of Ryan Donald’s hook-laden bass and Pat Brook’s gospel tinged beats, all rounded out by Chris Case’s driving keyboard arrangements.
Tuscawilla Art Park is an outdoor venue that provides an open area for seating. Those planning to attend are encouraged to bring their own blankets and lawn chairs. Concert gates open at 5:30 p.m. with musical performances from 6–9 p.m.
Food and beverages will be available for purchase. No outside coolers are permitted. The 2020 Spring Art Parks series is sponsored by the City of Ocala, 100.5 The Buzz and Brooklyn’s Backyard. Tickets are $5.
