Friday on the Green- with Russell Craig
August 7, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
Tonight on the Green Stage we welcome from Dothan, Russell Craig! Russell recorded his first studio album titled “Call Me the Rain” in 2014 and in 2016 he was the opening act for the Charlie Daniels Band at the Montgomery Performing Arts Center. Although he is solo today, in 2018 Russell surrounded himself with three incredible musicians and formed the Russell Craig Band. His band plays a variety of venues including bars, restaurants, weddings, charity events, corporate events, private events and more. In addition to his music, Russell has a passion for helping others. He was born with Retinitis Pigmentosa, a progressive disease that eventually causes total blindness. “Growing up, I believe I focused too much on trying to blend in with my peers rather than trying to adapt to my disability. Instead of thriving, I was surviving in terms of my abilities. My goal in life is to help people with disabilities realize their worth and reach their true potential.” Russell is currently pursuing his bachelor’s in rehabilitation and disability studies from Auburn University.
