For the third year in a row, the City of Hickory is fortunate to have Bob Sinclair organizing this original music series. He does this for fun, and has many years of experience putting together events like the Sails Original Music Series, as well as playing music himself in places like the Bluebird in Nashville. Sinclair has, again, brought together a lineup for this series that has a variety of genres from indie-rock to international party music, Latin jazz to fusion, and bluegrass – all world-class; all free.

I am very excited about September’s musical lineup for the Sails Original Music Series,” said Sinclair. “What started out as an idea for a modest little music series in 2012 has become a highly regarded musical event that attracts people from across the state to our downtown square in Hickory, North Carolina.”

Sinclair added, “In 2015, every Friday night in May, June and September, we will present perhaps our most diverse array of music yet.”

from the stageMusic brings people together,” said Mandy Pitts, City of Hickory’s Communications Director and Brand Manager. “The City and organizers of the music series work to make Hickory a unique Friday destination for families and the musically adventurous citizens of the area. It’s an evening about meeting new and old friends, enjoying fellowship and talented musicians playing on The Sails on the Square stage, many of who have already been on national shows and well known, and others who are on their way to accolades and awards.”

Event attendees are encouraged bring their lawn chairs or blankets and pack picnics or get food from one of the restaurants in the area. Old Hickory Brewery and Silver Fork Winery sell their local beverages during the concerts on Fridays.
Sails Original Music Series begins about 6 p.m., and ends by 8:30 p.m.
