Attendees gather on the oceanfront lawn of the St. Simons Island lighthouse to enjoy a previous Little Light Music concert. The next performance will be held at 7 p.m. Sunday and will feature the Michael Stacey Band.

Nothing says “summer” like ocean breezes in your hair and classic tunes in your ears. And that’s precisely what A Little Light Music offers.

Hosted by the Coastal Georgia Historical Society, the annual concert series serves as both a fundraiser for the non-profit and an exciting excursion for locals and visitors alike.

Attendees can lounge with friends and family while enjoying a picnic supper on the St. Simons Island lighthouse lawn.

Concerts are held from 7 to 9 p.m. on select Sunday evenings from May to September.

Tickets are $15 for adults; children under 12 and Keepers of the Light are admitted free of charge. No cash will be accepted and tickets are non-refundable.

Society staff encourages concert-goers to purchase tickets in advance in the Lighthouse Museum Store or on the society’s website, coastalgeorgiahistory.org.

If purchasing a ticket online, receipts must be presented at the gate to receive an admission sticker.

For news and weather updates during the concert season, visit the society’s website or Facebook page.
