Music fans might not be able to find a more beautiful springtime pairing than the picturesque setting of Magnolia Plantation and Gardens and the spectacular charm of N.C. musician Shannon Whitworth’s elegant songs. This Friday evening, Whitworth and her Brevard-based band — pedal steel player Matthew Smith, drummer Ryan Oslance, and bassist Chris Burt — headline the Magnolia Concert on the Lawn. A founding member of the Biscuit Burners, Whitworth formed her acoustic-based combo in 2006. Their latest album Water Bound combines elements of folk-rock, bluegrass, and country. Presented by Outdoor Outfitters and the Coastal Conservation League, the outdoor concert is designed to raise funds for the work of the CCL. Local Americana band the Moonshiners share the bill. Music runs from 6-10 p.m.
