Brownsville Music Series Begins Saturday

BROWNSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A summer music series in Brownsville, Tenn., begins Saturday with proceeds from concessions going toward the restoration of Flagg Grove School, the childhood school of Tina Turner.

The series, Concert on the Porch, features local and regional artists performing on the porch of the Sleepy John Estes home on the grounds of the West Tennessee Delta Heritage Center. Admission is free.

The heritage center is home to three regional museums depicting the history and culture of West Tennesseans: the Cotton Museum, the West Tennessee Music Museum and the Hatchie River Museum.

Concerts are each third Saturday from June through September.

Turner grew up in nearby Nut Bush. The school was recently moved to the center.
