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!!!
