American roots music concert at Camp Helen State Park lodge Feb. 21

February 10, 2015

camphelenlodgeThe Friends of Camp Helen State Park are hosting a Saturday concert series. The concerts will be held in the lodge from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.

On Sat., Feb. 21, Granville Automatic, a songwriting/performing duo of Vanessa Olivarez and Elizabeth Elkins, will be featured at Camp Helen.  From Nashville, they make music from their “shared love of history, horses, and war,” bringing listeners Civil War battlefields and a tangle of haunting vocals and beautiful lyrics.  Sounding like Lyle Lovett, Gram Parsons, Emmylou Harris and Willie Nelson, they’ve written together more than 90 songs–almost all of which tell stories from history.

Come join in for a unique series of concerts featuring the best American Roots musicians touring the country today. This impressive series of indoor concerts at Camp Helen’s historic log cabin style lodge is sponsored by Florida’s Department of Environmental Protection and the Friends of Camp Helen State Park. The series is hosted by Lucky Mud.

Free admission into the park, with donation requested. Donations will go directly to the Friends of Camp Helen State Park to be used to benefit the park’s resource management projects and interpretive programs. Refreshments available. Call 850-233-5059 for more information.
