On September 13, 2019 at 7 p.m. Kevn Kinney will join the Fox Theatre Institute (FTI) to host an unforgettable night as the non-profit celebrates Georgia’s historic theaters and FTI’s tenth year of preserving and supporting Georgia’s most significant historic resources. With performances by Drive-By Truckers, Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Drivin N Cryin and Dodd & The Councilmen, this unique storytelling event is inspired by the essence of the Fox Theatre Institute’s mission to serve historic theatres and arts centers and keep the heartbeat of performing arts, creativity, and historic preservation alive. Attendees will also have the opportunity to bid on a variety of unique rock memorabilia items in a silent auction with proceeds benefiting the ongoing outreach programs of the Fox Theatre Institute. Additionally, other notable guests will be announced as the event nears closer.
From being an audience member to headlining numerous shows, Kevn Kinney, leader singer of Atlanta rock band Drivin N Cryin, has shared an incredible journey with the Fox Theatre. As narrator of the evening, Kinney will welcome performers and special guests to share their own stories about how performing arts centers have made a significant impact on their lives while also sharing some of his most cherished memories from Georgia’s cultural centers.
The Institute’s mission and celebration of Georgia’s historic theaters has garnered the attention and support from other like-minded industry giants and preservationists like Bertis Downs, advisor of Athens rock band R.E.M. An Athens resident himself, Downs recognizes the integral role that cultural arts centers play in fostering strong artistic communities throughout the state.
