Summer Music Series 2013

Summer Music Series 2013

by Taylor Mayberry

Summer brings fun for the whole family. Swimming, camping, shopping, and vacations fill other summer activities fill your calendars as well as ours. Finding things that the whole family can enjoy together might be hard, but an evening of relaxing and listening to live music could be just the ticket. Summer Music Series put on by local artists are perfect for families, as you can kick back and listen to artists perform in various outdoor settings. Sitting under the sky, in the warm breezy air, listening to local artists play is not only entertaining, but it also offers a fresh breath of summer.


Many different communities throughout the Heartland offer free or low cost concerts to the public during the summer. Tunes at Twilight, Rock in the Rock Garden, and Brown Bag Lunch Concerts are just a few that have become popular over the years. Around the area can be heard folk music to rock to country roots. The events take place in courthouse lawn gazebos, on grassy knolls, on park benches, and at town squares. Wherever the location, whatever the entertainment, the events bring a sense of community and comfort to our hometowns. Find the music series near you and enjoy the season!
