The Ludington Area Center for the Arts (LACA) is excited to once again host the LACA Summer Concert Series, a free public concert series Wednesday evenings (7-9 p.m.) in downtown Ludington’s Waterfront Park.
The 11-week LACA Summer Concert Series debuts Wednesday, June 23 with a performance by Wendell Harrison and will continue through Sept. 1. This free family friendly concert series features world class Jazz, Blues, Pop/Rock and R&B music from internationally acclaimed touring artists.
Musical acts slated to take part in the LACA Summer Concert Series include, Wendell Harrison, June 23; Holly MaGuire, June 30; Tel Yo Mama, July 7; Nick Moss Blues Band, July 14; Serita’s Black Rose, July 21; Greg Nagy’s Men of Leisure, July 28; Rodney Whitaker Quartet, Aug. 4; Planet D Nonet, Aug. 11; Chris Foreman’s Soul Message Band, Aug. 18; U’Neek Soul, Aug. 25; and Headwinds Blues Project, Sept. 1.
“LACA is thrilled to be able to offer our community a free family friendly concert series,” said LACA Executive Director Andrew Skinner.
“Part of the art center’s vision is to foster a community where arts and culture bring us together, feed the creative spirit and fuel community growth, and this series does just that!” Skinner said. “What could be better than gathering with new and old friends on the lush grass of Waterfront Park and listening to world renowned musicians perform all while taking in the breathtaking sunset and the evening arrival of the S.S. Badger.
