City announces summer concert series line up
LOCK HAVEN – The Lock Haven City Summer Concert Series is coming soon with a few changes.
The announcement comes after careful planning by the concert committee to ensure COVID-19 safety guidelines will be met through out the series. This includes a change in venue for the Friday concerts.
“The concerts traditionally held at Triangle Park have been moved to Main and Grove streets to allow outdoor diners and shoppers the opportunity to enjoy music on Main Street and provide ample space for residents to practice social distancing,” Kasey Campbell, director of community life, said.
This announcement comes after the city received approval to shut down a section of Main Street on Fridays into Saturdays to give business owners the opportunity to have outdoor seating and hold sidewalk style sales.
The following concerts will be performed on the Main Street stage:
– Big Willy performing easy rock on June 26
– John Stevenson Polka Band performing on July 3
– Biscuit Jam performing Americana on July 17
– Heather Olson and the Silver Eagle Band performing classic country on July 24
– Robert Pignatello performing easy listening and classic rock on July 31
– The Clark McClane Band performing Americana and bluegrass on Aug. 1
– Robert Richardson performing classic rock on Aug. 7
– Cass + Mike performing easy rock on Aug. 21
– Flashback performing classic rock on Aug. 28
Friday night concerts begin at 6 p.m. and end around 8.
Of course it isn’t the summer concert series without performances at the floating stage.
Five bands from classic rock to rhythm and blues will be performing at the J. Doyle Corman Amphitheatre beginning June 28 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. They are:
– Black Star Sunrise performing rock on June 28
– Inca, a Santana tribute band, performing on July 12
– Hybrid Ice performing classic rock on July 26
– Uptown Music Collective performing rhythm and blues on Aug. 9
– DuMM performing top 40 hits and pop on Aug. 23.
There will also be a special Saturday concert on Aug. 15 in conjunction with the annual LH Jams festival. Motown band York Street Hustle will be taking to the stage that Saturday after a day full of music on Main Street.
The concert committee hopes members of the public will come and enjoy the free concerts, but asks they keep in mind social distancing.
“While the committee is excited to offer the 16 free concerts this summer, residents should remain vigilant to the threat of COVID-19 which has claimed the lives of more than 100,000 Americans and more than 6,000 Pennsylvanians including three in Clinton County,” Campbell said.
“In order to successfully continue the summer concert series, residents and guests are to follow CDC and DOH guidelines in order to reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19 including social distancing between non-household members in the amphitheatre, wearing masks and sanitizing hands frequently,” she continued.
The city will be providing hand washing stations at each concert and encourages those who might have symptoms of the virus or are at higher risk of contracting it to remain home.
