Music on the Steps

The Monday night summer concert series at the downtown library kicked off tonight at 7 pm with The Company Store, an old time traditional string band that mixes a lot of country humor into their performance. They’ve been playing the library steps for a number of years, and they are definitely one of my favorites. Check out their website here, and you can hear some samples of their music. The “Music on the Steps” series has a wide variety of musical genres covered in this summer’s schedule, and we try to go every week, regardless of who’s playing. Great for all ages, with plenty of room for dancing toddlers.

For more outdoor music, check out the Tuesday lunchtime concerts at Hurkamp Park, from 11:30 am-1:30 pm. Also in Hurkamp Park is this Wednesday's “Music Under the Stars” with the Fredericksburg Community Concert Band (that always gets a big turnout). On Friday, check out this concert in Market Square from 7-10 pm. And the Bluemont concerts at Maury Stadium on Saturday nights start up on June 21. For a more complete listing of summer concerts , check out this post at In The 'Burg. Enjoy!

Don't forget about the various Friday's events, and also the Mercedes/Volvo Park 'Beach Wop' concerts (a new venue behind the dealerships off fall hill).

I'm trying to keep a running list at http://burgnews.blogspot.com/2008/04/live-music-in-burg-this-summer.html

I will be updating the bluemont shortly (had to wait for the band list).

Feel free to link from other blogs directly to this page on InTheBurg.
