Concert on the Common returns Thursday in Greenville

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) – Another year of Concert on the Common in Greenville is set to kick off this week.

Inner Banks Media, with the assistance of the Greenville Junior League and the City of Greenville, will present another year of the series starting this Thursday at 6 p.m.

The Embers featuring Craig Woolard will take to the stage at the Greenville Town Common on First Street.

The Embers are known for their beach music performances.

The series this year will also feature a charity effort that encourages attendees to bring non-perishable food to donate to the food bank’s Back Pack Buddies program.

That program helps kids in the area who are food insecure during the summer months.

The shows are free and beer and wine will be served along with food trucks lining First Street.
