The Spartanburg Music Trail expands again when signage honoring David Ball and Buck Trent is unveiled on Saint John Street between the Chapman Cultural Center and the George Dean Johnson School of Business Friday, August 23 at 4 p.m. The public is invited. David Ball and his band, the Pioneer Playboys, will be in attendance, and will perform at The Showroom later that evening, at 8:30 p.m.
Ball and Trent, both country music artists, join 14 others on the Spartanburg Music Trail, which opened in 2011. They were chosen as audience favorites in a public poll that ran on GoUpstate.com last year.
The Music Trail is an initiative led by HUB-BUB, the Hub City Writers Project, the City of Spartanburg and the Spartanburg Convention and Visitors Bureau. Other funding partners include the Arts Partnership of Greater Spartanburg and the Humanities Council SC.
