‘Music in the Park’ series returns to Presque Isle

Posted July 15, 2011, at 2:58 p.m.

PRESQUE ISLE — Riverside Park in Downtown Presque Isle will once again be filled with music on Sunday afternoons this summer as the City of Presque Isle, the Presque Isle Downtown Revitalization Committee and the University of Maine at Presque Isle host the fourth annual “Music in the Park” series.

The free concert series kicked off on Sunday, July 10, and will continue with concerts on July 17, 24 and Aug. 7.

The Sunday, July 17, concert will open with local musicians Melbourne Smith, Frank Grant and Doug Drew who will entertain with banjo, fiddle and guitar. Singer-songwriter Martha Gallagher will play after with a performance that glides from wailing blues and Latin grooves to classical inspirations and jazz. Her instrument of choice: a harp.

The concerts all will run from 1-4 p.m. Food vendors will be on site offering snacks and drinks and people are encouraged to bring their lawn chairs and blankets.

If the weather is unfavorable, the concerts will be held at the Riverside Park building close by.

For more information, call Carol Ayoob at 768-5903.
