Stuart’s Opera House concludes its 2013 Free Summer Concert Series on Friday, Sept. 27 with up-and-coming Americana artist Nora Jane Struthers and her band The Party Line.

Held in conjunction with Nelsonville's Final Fridays celebration, the concert will take place in the Stuart's parking lot at 7 p.m.

Nora Jane Struthers has been receiving accolades from numerous media outlets, including NPR, which enthusiastically stated that "Struthers embodies everything you could want in an Americana singer-songwriter."

Struthers, who is currently touring in support of her latest release, Carnival, will be joined by The Party Line, an upbeat quintet that includes fiddle, claw-hammer banjo, acoustic guitar, bass, drums and three-part harmonies.

The past few years have been eventful for the Nashville singer-songwriter, with a 2010 Best Band award win at Colorado’s Telluride Bluegrass Festival, a stint as featured vocalist and songwriter in the band Bearfoot, and several tours of the U.S., France and Germany.

Friday's concert is free and open to the public. In addition to the live music, there will be a beer garden and an indoor exhibit by Granville artist David Butler titled Strange Invitations, featuring rock show posters. The monthly Final Fridays event, which includes art openings, vendors and exhibits, gets underway at 5 p.m.

In case of bad weather, the concert will be moved inside Stuart’s Opera House. For more information, visit www.stuartsoperahouse.org.
