The music group Southbound will be performing Friday night at 7 p.m. The concert will take place at the Bicentennial Park gazebo. Southbound is the third group to perform as part of Fairlawn's summer concert series.

Southbound brings a country-rock style of music to the summer series. Although, Parks and Recreation Director Laurie Beisecker said this is not the first time they have performed in Fairlawn. She also says Southbound is one of her favorite groups.

The group was founded by Bernie Roberts in 1981, giving them 28 years of performing experience. Over the years the four-man roster of Southbound has changed, but Roberts has remained with the group from the beginning.
