Downtown Sanford Inc. and the city of Sanford will sponsor a free concert by recording artist Britton Buchanan, the Sanford native who was the runner up on the 2018 season of NBC’s The Voice.

The concert will take place 7 p.m. on June 19 at Depot Park in downtown Sanford. DSI Executive Director Kelli Laudate said the concert will be a special hometown kickoff for a tour Buchanan is launching next month.

“He really wanted to do something at home, and we were able to put this together,” she said.

Also performing will be friends of Buchanan’s, Kelly Kidd, Jake Kelly, and Redd Carter.
