Regulars at Terra Fermata, the live outdoor music venue in Stuart, might have noticed some changes since its opening in early 2013.
The establishment on Sixth Street, just off Colorado Avenue, plays live music every night and the featured artists have been slowly transitioning from local bands to more national acts like The Original Wailers or festival favorites, Donna the Buffalo. Lee Roy Parnell, a two-time Grammy and three-time Country Music Award nominated artist performed last weekend.
“We are keeping up with our aggressive agenda of attracting national touring bands,” said Ronald Hart, owner of Terra Fermata, who recently booked Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Leon Russell to perform July 23.
To Hart, booking Russell is a huge deal, especially since booking national music acts was his original goal all along.
