On Friday, June 17, Rock City’s Velvet Lounge series will welcome back Putnam Smith. The music will run from 7 to 9 p.m. at Rock City Books & Coffee, 328 Main St.

Smith is a talented musician who has wowed Velvet Loungers in the past with his smooth vocals and bluegrass tunes. As usual, there is no cover charge; however, tipping the musician is highly encouraged. For more information on this and other events at Rock City, call 594-4123.
