Sunflower Music Series: String Theory

Summer was made for outdoor concerts – and so were the amphitheater and terraced lawns in the Flower Garden of the State Botanical Garden of Georgia at the University of Georgia. Now in its 16th season, the Sunflower Music Series has placed both world-renowned and new-on-the-scene musicians in a world-class botanical environment. Originally formed in 1993, String Theory plays old time, bluegrass and Americana music. While the lineup has evolved and changed throughout its history, the band has consistently been made up of some of Athens' finest acoustic musicians.

He earned a combined undergraduate degree from Brown and the Rhode Island School of Design in both art history and studio art. At peace in nature, landscapes were his most frequent subject, and the State Botanical Garden of Georgia was one of his favorite haunts.
