New Wednesday Evening Concert Series
Posted on October 1, 2019 9:00 AM by Phil Casey
The New Town Commercial Association inaugurated another fun social event this month: Wednesday evening concerts in Pecan Square (at the corner of Discovery and Ironbound Road).
Johnny St. Clair kicked off the series on September 18 with an easy going program that put the emphasis on old school country tunes. The weather was perfect for an evening of music and many New Town residents were in the audience. Johnny performed solo but he provides his own bass accompaniment for his guitar using pedals as an organist would. There is a lot happening in a Johnny St. Clair live performance but he makes it all sound super smooth.
On September 25, Jocelyn Oldham performed. As she sang Van Morrison’s “Moondance”, with its lyric about October skies, it perfectly suited another beautiful outdoor evening in the neighborhood. Her set included covers of such artists as Sheryl Crow, Leonard Cohen and John Prine.
If you missed these two shows, do not fret! There are two more announced concerts in the series for 2019. Bring a lawn chair or blanket and come out for a couple hours of live entertainment under the magic of October skies. New Town entrepreneur and guitarist Scott Wise will appear on October 2 and the dual guitar line up of StonesThrow takes the stage on October 9. Concerts are 5:30 to 7:30PM.
Special thanks to The Local Scoop and Next Door Neighbor Magazine for making these concerts possible.
