Richard Thompson Is Coming To Lowell!!!
The Lowell Summer Music Series is welcoming Richard Thompson to the Series for his fourth appearance on September 4th! I’ve seen him a number of times, both solo and with a band that has included his son Teddy, and he has never disappointed me.
Here Is Something For The Folkies Out There
The Lowell Summer Music Series is pleased to present Peter Yarrow and Noel Paul Stookey, the surviving members of Peter Paul & Mary, on Friday, August 23rd. I suspect they will have many great stories to tell in addition to singing songs many of us grew up singing.
Some More New Music For Your Listening Pleasure
Another artist with whom I was not previously familiar is Ed Romanoff, but I am glad I now know him.
We All Need To Know Eric Erdman
Some friends are big supporters of Alabama-based singer-songwriter Eric Erdman; since we have similar taste in music (we met at AmericanaFest), they suggested I would enjoy his recent release, It’s Not Like You Don’t Know Me. They were right!!!

It is rare that I use ‘magic’ to describe a music or any other event, but magical is the perfect description for the evening with Livingston Taylor at The Extended Play Sessions at the Fallout Shelter.
An Evening In Singer-Songwriter Heaven
I had never seen Mary Chapin Carpenter perform despite wanting to see her, so I was thrilled when her show was announced for the Lowell Summer Music Series this year. I grew even more excited about the show when I read that Rose Cousins would open the show.
Even though a brief unexpected shower occurred a few minutes before MCC was to take the stage, the audience’s spirits were not dampened by the ten-minute delay waiting for the rain to end.

Dom Flemons, The American Songster, Captivated The Full House
I cannot say I have seen Dom Flemons perform ‘many’ times, but I have seen him enough to recognize that he is one of the most engaging, knowledgeable, and talented musicians touring today. The show this week at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts was as good a show of Dom’s as the others I have seen.
One could not have requested a more perfect evening. The temperature was perfect, the breeze slight, and the humidity almost non-existent. Oh yeah, and the music was sublime.
