Saturday, March 23, 8pm
The Mulehouse
812 S. High St, Columbia

Back By Popular Demand! Forever Abbey Road is a collective of successful Nashville musicians who work hard at creating a unique show that demonstrates what the Beatles might sound like if they were around today with current technology and modern rock energy. These musicians play some of the music exactly like the record but at times they expand on the music and create incredible new arrangements with dynamic virtuosic musicianship. The band members have worked with a huge list of legends including Ringo Starr, Peter Frampton, Willie Nelson, Nickelback, Dolly Parton, Zac Brown, Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, and more!

Forever Abbey Road has toured all over the southeastern United States and they’ve become a fan favorite at theaters, venues and Beatles festivals. Currently they are selling out City Winery Nashville each month with their famous Nashville Beatles brunch show. The band members have also worked with colleagues of the Beatles including the Beatles’ studio genius Geoff Emerick, Joey Molland from Badfinger and Denny Laine and Steve Holley from Paul McCartney and Wings. www.foreverabbeyroad.com

5Maury County Park Hosts ‘The Hike’ at the Storybook Trail

Begins Friday, March 1
Maury County Park
1018 Maury County Park Dr, Columbia.

The Storybook Trail, located along the Nature Trail in Maury County Park, hosts monthly, seasonal stories that the entire family can enjoy.

The March story is “The Hike” by Alison Farrel. With lyrical language that captures the majesty of the natural world coupled with fun narrative featured throughout, this spirited picture book tells the victorious story of three girls’ friendship – and their tribulations and triumphs in the great outdoors. Here is the best and worst of any hike: from picnics to puffing and panting, deer-sighting to detours. And it proves, as if proof were needed, what epic things can happen right in your own backyard.

To access the trail: Enter Maury County Park and continue straight on the main park road. Pass the Kids’ Kingdom playground on the right, and continue straight up the hill. Halfway up the hill, there is a trailhead with parking on the right.

The Storybook Trail features storybooks presented on child-height panels, along a short accessible trail to promote adult-child interaction around books and nature in a healthy, outdoor activity. Books are rotated monthly, so there is always a new, seasonal story to enjoy. Maury County Park is located at 1018 Maury County Park Dr, Columbia.
