WOODSTOCK — Copper Coin Coffee shop in downtown Woodstock is playing host Friday to some of the best local talent with the North Georgia Film and Music Professionals Showcase.

The free event is from 8 to 10 p.m. and will feature top singer-songwriters, soloists and instrumentalists from the area.

Local musicians will gain exposure from the showcase and other music industry professionals are encouraged to attend for networking purposes.

Thomas Fountain, a finalist for Georgia Male Country Artist of the Year and a Cherokee County teacher, is one of the performers for the event.

“Artists have the opportunity for their music to be heard. Our songs can be picked up by someone, whether they want to use it for a commercial or movie. It is always a way for singer songwriters to have our songs heard,” Fountain said. “These things are not for money; it is just a way for us to play in front of people we normally do not get to play in front of.”

The artist recently performed at events including Riverfest, and in the past has shared the stage with a number of music legends including Joe Nichols, Blue Oyster Cult and .38 Special.

The music starts at 8 p.m. with Atlanta based alternative rock band, Jeremy and Jon.

Jeremy Beavers and Jon Brown both attended Kennesaw State University while pursuing music degrees. The artists have been performing in the north metro Atlanta area since 2013.

They have recently been featured in Roswell Tap’s Singer Songwriter Series showcase for original music.

Harry Cain will then follow at 8:20 p.m. for a set featuring a style that combines alternative, acoustic and pop music.

Rick Diamond, a singer-songwriter from Lawrenceville, will perform at 8:40 p.m. The artist performs pop-acoustic music and has been writing music and playing guitar since age 12.

Fountain will perform at 9 p.m.

Jordan Grassi and Casey Montana Rogers will close the night as the final performers.

“Both of the girls have been openers for me this year,” said Fountain. “Both have a very bright future and are very talented. I really try to help out younger acts this year that I believe have what it takes. That’s why I have chosen both to open for me this year.”

Grassi, a country singer and song-writer will at 9:20 p.m. The young artist is a self-taught pianist and guitarist from Key West. In 2012 Grassi won the Georgia-Country Teen Artist of the Year Award.

Country-folk artist Rogers will be the final performer of the night. The 19-year-old Rogers recently finished tracking two songs in Nashville, and has been singing since age 14.

Musicians featured in the showcase were chosen by the North Georgia Film and Music Professionals after going through an online selection process.

The North Georgia Film and Music Professionals, founded by Sandy Serge of Serge Entertainment, consists of a team of professionals and volunteers throughout North Georgia who wish create events related to art, entertainment, and culture.

Copper Coin coffee shop is located in downtown Woodstock at 400 Chambers St. For more information visit www.coppercoincoffee.com.
