PRLog - Mar. 7, 2014 - ORANGE BEACH, Ala. -- Orange Beach, AL – The Orange Beach Festival of Art celebrates 40 years of fine and culinary arts on the Alabama Gulf Coast.

This year Festival attendees will enjoy music from the new Flamenco and Jazz Band Roman Street and the renegade bluegrass ground of popular Birmingham based Rollin’ In The Hay on March 8th from 2-3:15p.m. Rollin’ In The Hay Bandmember Rick Carter says “With acoustic guitars, mandolin and vocals, we will bring some ‘high-octane groove grass’ to this Festival.”

Attendees will also enjoy live performances of “Circus De Luna” and choreography set to Beethoven’s 7th by the Coastal Ballet Academy under the the direction of Rio Barlow. Barlow, former professional ballerina has been a part of the Festival of Art programming team for several years. Barlow says, “We've participated in the Festival for the last few years and it provides a wonderful opportunity for our students to share their love of ballet with not only their friends and family but with the community at large. I'm always impressed by the warm reception we receive from the audience and it certainly inspires the dancers to give their utmost.”

Festival attendees are encouraged to park at The Wharf and ride the dedicated shuttles that will run during Festival hours for a cost of $2.00 each way. No public parking will be available on the grounds of the Coastal Arts Center or on the Festival site.
