In just a little over a month, the Bowen Center for the Arts will host famous western singer and songwriter Juni Fisher for a concert put on by the Chattahoochee Trail Horse Association and benefiting North Georgia horse trails.
According to a release by the Bowen, Juni Fisher will be at the art center on April 24 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. for the benefit concert. During the performance break, concert attendees will be invited to meet the singer personally and enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres and refreshments compliments of the Chattahoochee Trail Horse Association (CTHA) and the Bowen.
Fisher was raised in San Joaquin Valley, California in a farming family and was active in 4H and FFA. She studied equine science and won championships in horse showing, training and competitions in racing and western events.
During college, Fisher began singing to help pay for her horse show entry fees, then began playing rhythm guitar and singing before joining country dance bands in LA clubs. She moved to Tennessee to hone her songwriting skills, and by 2003 made the shift to music full time. Since 2005, she has won multiple awards for her singing and songwriting, including being named the 2011 WMA Entertainer of the Year.
The concert at the Bowen will benefit the North Georgia Public Horse Trails, which include the Don Carter State Park in Gainesville, Watson Mill Bridge trails in Comer, A.H. Stephens trails in Crawfordville and the Garland Mountain trails in Waleska.
