Riverfront Park Concert Series Kicks Off Fifth Anniversary July 8


TRURO – From old-time fiddle music to the blues, the 2016 Riverfront Park Concert Series will highlight some of the unique talent the Truro area has to offer.


This is the fifth year for the series, which attracts hundreds of people of all ages to Riverfront Park at the corner of Walker and Bayview streets in downtown Truro.


The series is presented by the Town of Truro Department of Parks, Recreation and Culture. The concerts are free and will be held from 7 to 8 pm on four consecutive Fridays in July.


The 2016 lineup:


July 8: She & I (Craig & Mandy MacEachern; 7:00 pm)

July 15: ACA-jam (7:00 pm)

July 22: Julie Johnstone (7:00 pm)

July 29: The McCready Brothers (7:00 pm)


She & I (Mandy and Craig MacEachern) will bring a mix of rock, country and folk music to the stage.


ACA-jam, featuring Truro area youth, was launched several years ago, and mainly French and Acadian songs, with a few English cover tunes mixed in.


Fiddler Julie Johnstone of North River will present a lively one-hour performance.


The McCready Brothers of Truro have been playing together for more than 30 years. Join Jim and AT for an hour of easy-listening blues music, featuring guitar, vocals and harmonica.


Don’t forget that Truro Parks, Recreation and Culture also presents Sunday concerts in Victoria Park all summer long. The concerts are free and are held from 2 to 4 pm. A list of upcoming performers between now and early September is available online at www.truro.ca, or by calling 902.893.6078.
