These three monthly concerts, hosted inside the library during regular hours, are sponsored by the Friends of the Ferndale Library, with free, family-friendly performances continuing on July 26th with The Moxie Strings and August 23rd with Trois Buffons. Increased support by the volunteer fundraising Friends group helped produce one of the more impressive seasonal lineups for the library’s concert series. http://ferndalefriends.org/
Nothing sweeter than some fine live music in a serene setting during the soft-glowing sunset of a summer’s eve. The Ferndale Library’s Summer Concert Series kicks off Tue., Jun. 14 with a performance by beloved regional folk-rock singer/songwriter Jill Jack.
This series of monthly performances is an ideal way for music fans and families to spend a summer evening. Our roster of bands and musicians will be performing during regular Library hours, leading to tunes cheerfully resonating throughout the whole library at agreeable volume levels. Every reader needs to rock out a bit, right?
The Ferndale Library’s Summer Concert Series has always strived to expose library visitors to music that is new and exciting in a setting that is both lively and thoughtful. The award-winning Jill Jack is a dynamic and engaging performer with a high regard across the Detroit music scene.
Along with the kickoff concert on June 14, there will be performances by The Moxie Strings on Jul 26, a high-energy trio of genre-blurring specialists equipped with an electric cello and a 5-string violin, stirring up traditional takes on world-music, celtic and Americana, concluding with Trois Bouffons’ regal and renaissance-tinged renderings of French Canadian folk music and traditional Americana on Aug 23.
All three scheduled concerts begin at 6:30pm in the library’s Community Room. It is free and open to all ages. Funds raised by bi-annual bake sales, bolstered by the support of the Friends of the Ferndale Library, helps produce a fun and exciting three-part series of monthly weeknight concerts featuring top tier talents from around the region.
