One of my favorite places to go is to Long’s Park in Lancaster. Every Sunday night, during the summer, there is a concert held in the amphitheatre in the park at no charge to the public. There is a wide variety of music showcased with top performers. The concerts start at 7:30pm and often run until 9pm or later. There are food vendors with some light fare and also delicious ice cream (my favorite summertime treat)! This Sunday’s concert, the 2nd of a series of 13 concerts, is a traditional Scottish band, The Tannahill Weavers. There is music to please just about any listener’s taste, from blues, jazz, southern rock, bluegrass, country, and zydeco to celtic, world music, gypsy and latin jazz. And of course the exciting, patriotic Fourth of July concert, not to be missed, with the 257th Army Band, the “Band of the Nation’s Capital”, and the concert ending with a Cannon Brigade and a spectacular fireworks display, who could ask for more?!
So it is time to come to beautiful Lancaster County to enjoy summertime, watch the fireflies and listen to some great music!
I’ll see you there if I’m not in my garden or watching the birds!
