This year marks the 18th annual Concert on the Lawn series. Weather permitting, performances are held on the Library’s front lawn at 1:00 pm on four Thursday afternoons. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to bring a lawn chair, sun block, bottle of water, and a blanket. If the day is too hot and humid or rainy, programs are held inside in the Fehlow Room.
This year’s schedule:
July 12 – Charlie Hope, Singer and Guitarist. Charlie Hope is a Canadian children’s singer/songwriter. Her albums have earned her critical acclaim, including a Juno Award for Children’s Album of the Year in 2012 and three Independent Music Awards. Both children and adults will surely want to get up and dance to Charlie’s interactive and singable songs!
July 26 – The Michele Rockwell Blues Band which is a four-piece ensemble that performs a variety of genres, including classic rock-and-roll, modern rock-and-roll, rhythm and blues, fun rock-and-roll, soul, blues and even a little reggae.
August 2nd – The Dixie Diehards Jazz Band is based out of Foxboro, MA. The Diehards have been performing since 2006 in the communities surrounding Boston, MA. They play the upbeat, hand-clapping New Orleans style of Jazz, which evolved in the early part of the twentieth century. Up beat, hand-clapping, toe-tapping, their music is guaranteed to lift your spirits.
August 16th – Local singer-songwriter Hayley Sabella has a new album out and will perform for us at the final Concert on the Lawn for 2018.
