It’s been a very long 14 months for all of us, not only lovers of live music. We are excited to announce that the Lowell Summer Music Series will be able to present a season of live music this summer. Based on current federal guidelines, they are not sure when Boarding House Park will be cleared to host full-capacity events. The intention is to host all events at Boarding House Park if it is permitted, but they have secured Lowell Memorial Auditorium as a back-up location to ensure there will be live music in downtown Lowell this summer!Read the rest of this entry
As she took the stage, DiFranco related that when she was assembling the set list, it suddenly hit her that she would perform love songs for this show since it had been a troublesome few weeks (in the news, not for her personally). What a brilliant decision!
I am excited to announce the first show of the 26th season of the Lowell Summer Music Series! It’s starting a little earlier than in past years which – for this fan of the Series at least – is going to make winter a bit more palatable! Ani DiFranco with Peter Mulvey opening will perform at the Series on Saturday, June 20.
