Summer Music to Beat the Band

Text by Abigail Jones & Christina Galt 

Take advantage of the last month of the summer and the countless opportunities to catch some live music.

What is it about the sultry days of summer that encourages a firm embrace of music? Every year, there is hype and anticipation as the Song of the Summer is announced by several outlets. Memories of concerts, bands, symphonies, buskers and chamber ensembles make up a collective sentimentality of summers that have come before.

Whether your preference leans toward jazz, classical, Rock ‘n Roll, Bluegrass, folk or something yet to be defined, there are a surprising number of options available this summer. Check out the impressive list of local as well as national artists that will be playing to an audience that could include you.
