On Sunday April 24, the Bowen Center for the Arts hosted western and folk singer and songwriter Juni Fisher for a concert put on by the Chattahoochee Trail Horse Association and benefiting horse trails in North Georgia.
Dozens of community members gathered at the Bowen from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. for the benefit concert as Fisher sang her songs, many of which are inspired by events that she’s experienced first hand and based on true stories.
Heads bobbed and feet tapped as she sang songs including her well-known “Let ‘er Go, Let ‘er Buck, Let ‘er Fly”, and the audience listened with great interest as she introduced each song and the tale behind writing it in between each piece, telling stories about her childhood and her family.
During the performance break, event attendees had the opportunity to enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres and to meet Fisher personally.
The concert benefited the North Georgia Public Horse Trails, which includes 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.
