Music made for the outdoors

BluesontheRed

I am so excited that Blues on the Red will be kicking off the three-part music series this Saturday, June 25, in Town Square! This is one of my favorite events, as it provides a winning combination of great music, food and beverages and lots of fun all outdoors in downtown Grand Forks. I am going to grab some friends and lawn chairs and head downtown for the free event. The June Blues on the read will feature guitartist, singer and songwriter, James Armstrong, from Michigan.  The Deb Jenkins Band from Fargo will open the show at 6 p.m. After the four-hour music show, I plan to head over to one of my favorite downtown businesses for more fun.  Not sure yet whether that will be The Frog, Blue Moose or Rhombus yet, and it may be all three! Two more shows will be coming on July 23 and August 27.  Bands will include Big George Jackson, Lamont Cranston, PeatMoss and the Austin James Band.
