GRANGEVILLE — Mark your calendars now for three nights of music in the coming months.
Grangeville Arts. Inc., will offer a free summer concert series beginning July 14. Performances will also take place Aug. 4 and Sept. 12.
“We wanted to offer a set of family-friendly musical performances at a place where everyone could easily gather,” said Grangeville Arts, Inc., member Rachel Young.
July 14, Bare Wires
Bare Wires will play Tuesday, July 14. This band is made up of four men who started playing music years and miles apart. They finally came together in Moscow. Blues is the thread that holds it all together, with scraps of rock, and other genes of music woven in. Lyrics and music — spawned from life experiences and vivid imaginations — make Bare Wires a one-of-a-kind band. They play an eclectic mix of original material best described as a hearty blues/rock mix, along with several carefully selected cover tunes.
Aug. 4, The All American Boys Chorus
The All-American Boys Chorus, which will perform Tuesday, Aug. 4, features youngsters ages 9 to 14 from more than 30 cities in southern California.
Forty-four concert tours to Europe, Asia, Canada and throughout the USA make The All-American Boys Chorus one of the most widely traveled boy’s choirs in the world. The boys are under the direction on Wesley Martin and will present a “Salute to America’s Music.”
Sept. 12, Big Red Barn
The band Big Red Barn, Based in Spokane, Wash., will present a concert Saturday, Sept. 12. Big Red Barn plays a funky blend of bluegrass, blues, country, jazz and other string-band music.
