WINSTON-SALEM — “Charlie,” the Motown and beach music band, will perform at 5 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 26, at Tanglewood Park in Clemmons. The concert is free and part of the Summer Parks Series presented  by the County of Forsyth in collaboration with The Arts Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County.
This versatile, six-piece band features male and female vocalists, keyboardist, guitar, bass and drums.
