Clinton County Live was formed as sort of a local musician/artist co-op back in 2009. Our goal was to help create a thriving community of musicians, artists, and businesses. We wanted to see more events in and around Clinton County put on by Local Musicians. As musicians and artists we wanted to play and perform closer to this place we call home. This Saturday, April 13, 2013 at The Historic Murphy Theatre in Downtown Wilmington, our goal will be realized. Please join us for a night of Local Live Music.
