The Embers

The Sanford Arts & Vine Festival at the Mann Center is thrilled to welcome Beach Music legends The Embers featuring Craig Woolard to the Mann Center Outdoor Stage. The Embers are scheduled to kick off our all-star music lineup at 2 pm and you’ll want to be sure you’re there for every note.

If you’re a fan of Beach Music then you no doubt know who The Embers are – and if you don’t, you’re certainly in for a musical treat. The Embers featuring Craig Woolard are one of the premier bands from the Carolinas and have been integral in laying the groundwork for what we actually call Beach Music!

The Embers have produced numerous albums and single releases that span decades and all the crazes continuing to exhibit top quality showmanship, musicianship, and professionalism.

Having been inducted into the South Carolina Rhythm and Blues Hall of Fame and most recently the South Carolina Beach Music Hall of Fame, The Embers are honored to carry the moniker of North Carolina’s Official Ambassadors of Music. They have traveled the nation and the world and have performed for every event imaginable from the highest dignitaries to the hottest backyard beach parties.

Make plans to join us and The Embers featuring Craig Woolard at the 2018 Sanford Arts & Vine Festival at the Mann Center, Saturday, May 12. It’ll be a full day of arts, crafts, food, beverages and beach music, right in the heart of downtown Sanford.  See you there!
