Mill Town Music Hall is a proud partner of the Smithsonian Institute's "New Harmonies" traveling exhibit that's making a stop in West Georgia. In addition, the venue will host several concerts to serve as companion programming between February 1 and March 9. During its first year, the venue has been home to quality wholesome entertainment covering multiple music genres, so it's the perfect home for several New Harmonies events. New Harmonies celebrates the diverse offerings of music stemming from American history.
The Georgia Humanities Council, in partnership with the Smithsonian Institution, is pleased to present New Harmonies: Celebrating American Roots Music. New Harmonies, a traveling exhibition, shares America's story by examining the roots of American music. The exhibit will highlight the unique story of Georgia's musical traditions. New Harmonies will spend six weeks in Bremen and the physical exhibit will be housed at The Warren P. Sewell Memorial Library (315 Hamilton Ave.).
