2011 first summer concert is tonight!

Come down to the lawn of The Hanover Arts and Activities Center tonight for the first concert of the 2011 summer series!  Our special guest, The Hanover Concert Band will be opening at 5:30 so bring a picnic dinner and come early to hear the wonderful sounds of big band music!  Then at 7:00 The Flaming Shillelaghs start off our wonderful summer concert series under the stars!
From the Bluemont website:
The Flaming Shillelaghs first performed for the Bluemont Concert Series in the 1980s for First Night Leesburg. Since then, they have delighted audiences with their spirited renditions of traditional Irish dance music, haunting ballads and infectious humor.  The Flaming Shillelaghs are Jesse Winch on guitar, bodhran, and harmonica, Joe DeZarn, fiddle, Tina Eck, flute and whistles, and Melissa Dunning on vocals. Their performance will also feature traditional Irish step-dancing. They’re multi-talented, multi-instrumentalists who never let a good tune or song get by them.

See you tonight!  We can't wait!!!

Only Four More Sundays!

Jen and I are busy working behind the scenes along with several other amazing volunteers- we're so excited for the beginning of our concert season which is only four weeks away!  We've been handing out flyers, looking for evening sponsors, coordinating outreach and community groups and fundraising.  Special thanks to Annette Ardler, Carolyn Peart, Paige Christy and Noelle Lavach for help with all of those areas.  There's SO much more to do! We'd love your help spreading the word- sending your friends a link to this blog or our Facebook page or copying and distributing flyers.  Let us know if you can help!
