Denison -- On Saturday in downtown Denison there will be three-layered cakes in the spotlight as Main Street melts into "Sweet Street" for the Sweet Jumbilee Cake and Sugar Arts Show, but Friday night it was the three-part harmony of Greg Guymon and Little Big Iron drawing another nice-sized crowd to Heritage Park for this week's Music on Main free summer concert series.
Comprized of multi-instrumentalist Freddy Lee Spears, bassist Bill Capshaw and Greg Guymon on rythm guitar -- and all three sing quite well -- Little Big Iron is a versatile group with plenty of skill to add their special touch to an eclectic set of cover tunes that range from Johnny Cash to the Greatful Dead.
In what should turn out to be another interesting development for downtown Denison, Guyman and his brother have bought the Rialto Theater and renovation is already underway.
When Music on Main continues 7:30 p.m. Friday evening, June 24, Ace High will perform at the free music series.
