Lowell Summer Music Series Strikes Again!
The Lowell Summer Music Series is bringing back another act that has appealed to fans of the series.
Ziggy Marley will appear at the Series on Thursday, June 19!
“A five-time Grammy-winning musician, actor, artist, activist and humanitarian, Ziggy Marley has established his presence on the public stage for over a quarter-century. His new album Fly Rasta will be released on April 15th. His prior release, Ziggy Marley In Concert, is a collection of live recordings from his 2012 Wild and Free World Tour and continues to convey Marley’s overall message of love, freedom, hope and challenge.”
I love album release tours; they show the energy that the artist has to continue creating new music. Ziggy puts on a great show, and his audiences feel how much he enjoys performing for them. Ziggy kicked off the 2012 Series and it looks like he might be kicking off this 25th anniversary year – what a way to start!
Tickets for Ziggy Marley’s show are priced at $39 in advance (fee-free!), $45 on the day of the show, and children 12 and under are always free courtesy of Eastern Bank. There are also premium seats – beach chairs are provided by the series – set in two rows directly in front of the stage for $139. Tickets go on sale Wednesday, March 19 through Lowell Summer Music Series.
For those of you who are unaware of the Series, or if you are aware of it but have never attended a show there, it is an outdoor (weather permitting) concert series held on National Park Service grounds in Lowell, Massachusetts. The Series is not-for-profit, which helps keep the ticket prices reasonable.
Surrounding Boarding House Park are old mill buildings, part of the Lowell National Historical Park, which you can tour if you arrive early enough. They provide an unusual setting for an evening of great music and ambiance.
The Series generally runs from late June to early September.
This Series is dear to my heart. I have been a season pass holder since 2007 and it is one of the highlights of the year (and of summer in particular) for me. Many lasting friendships have been made there. I expect this will be an especially excellent year since they are celebrating their 25th season!
I will post additional announcements for the Series as they are made.
