“May View Road” is coming to studio 116 in downtown Brundidge tonight and what better way to bring the 21st Peanut Butter Festival to a close than with music played by the band of a hometown girl.

Tori Lee Averette and her husband, Ed, of May View Road will bring the 21st Peanut Butter Festival to a close at studio 116 tonight.

Tori Lee Averette and her husband, Ed, are May View Road and they will bring their special brand of music to town.

Chris Rich, who owns and operates studio 116 with his wife Sara Dismukes, said May View Road plays American, jazz, folk and roots music so the band will appeal to different interests and ages.

“Not long ago, Tori and Ed were featured at Open Mic Night at studio 116 and everyone really enjoyed them,” Rich said. “We are excited to have them back with their band, May View Road.”

The concert at the gallery will begin at 7 o’clock tonight. T.J. Winters and Perry Brown will open for the May View Road concert that will begin around 8 p.m.

Rich said Winters and Brown have been featured at studio 116 and are popular solo performers.

May View Road will be at studio 116 in support of the upcoming release of their album so those who attend will have an opportunity to hear the music before it hits the airwaves.

Admission to “May View Road at studio 116” is $8 or $15 for two.

Tables will be available for those who would like to bring food and beverages to enjoy during the performances.

Studio 116 will be open throughout the day and will also have an outside venue.

“Inside the studio will be the gallery exhibits,” Rich said. “At the outside venue, we’ll have woodturning demonstrations, chair caning and pine straw basket weaving. We’ll also have pumpkin carving. There will be a $10 charge to cover the cost of the pumpkin but we’ll furnish the carving tools and offer any assistance.”

The 21st Peanut Butter Festival is the first opportunity Rich and his wife have had to participate in the harvest and heritage celebration as downtown business owners.

“We enjoyed the festival in the past and are excited to be a part of it in another way,” he said. “We are proud to have this opportunity to use what we do to attract more folks to Brundidge. The Peanut Butter Festival is a great event and we hope everyone will take this opportunity to enjoy a day in downtown Brundidge.”
