Concert on Library Lawn

This summer the Greenville Public Library will be offering free concerts on the front lawn featuring some of the best talent in the area. Each concert will coincide with Mainstreet’s “First Friday” starting with June 2nd from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. Everyone is invited to stop by and enjoy the music! Bring a blanket, lawnchair, and your lunch - or just take a moment’s break.

Our first guest artist is Taycie Powell who is from the Arcanum area. Taycie sings and plays a wide range of genres and can be sampled on youtube. Her instruments include piano, guitar, ukulele, and violin - all played by ear! She started piano at age eight because older siblings played and she looked up to them. Her greatest desire was to play in the church band. She got her wish when she was asked to join at age twelve, the youngest person to do so.

Taycie shares she loves to write songs and combines her music with politics. “Music changes people in ways words don’t. It moves people and brings something to their awareness. It’s more than entertainment. It tells a story.“

It was a big decision to go professional and requires a lot of discipline. She admits that in writing the tunes come easier than the words. She looks forward to becoming known for her original style and for her own songs. She likes Indy pop, soul, and “heart music.” For now she enjoys performing and growing a fan base.

Rain location is First United Methodist Church on Fourth.
