FRYEBURG — Fryeburg Business Association is very excited about the line up of entertainment for the 2012 season of concerts in Bradley Park in Fryeburg, Maine this July.
Starting on Tuesday night, July 10, the series will kick off with an all about the kids night. Bob Rutherford will be singing and entertaining, children and adults, with great music and country humor - while college art student, Alexa Demsey paints her magic on the smiling faces of all the children in the park. Free balloons will be given out to the children as well and at the end of the concert everyone's invited to enjoy free cake and ice cream presented by the Fryeburg Rotary Club.
Don Campbell, is on the calendar for Tuesday evening of July 17. Campbell was scheduled to appear last year but unfortunately was hurt in an unfortunate accident the night before the concert. Campbell's style has been compared to Dan Fogelberg, Vince Gill, and the sounds of the Eagles and he has been entertaining audiences with an appealing blend of adult contemporary and country music for over twenty years now releasing his 11th album last summer. He's a local Mount Washington Valley boy who made it big but has not forgot his roots and the people back home.
On Tuesday, July 24, come enjoy the music of Jon Sarty with musical partner Ray Ryan. Sarty is a local celebrity favorite in the area who has recently kicked off his recording career. His Americana style, perfect pitch and outstanding vocal range, and unique guitar arrangements combined, make for a night of musical bliss for all listeners.
To wrap up the four week concert series you can dance and tap your feet to the sounds of Smokin Loafers. Featuring five extraordinary vocals offering a variety filled repertoire. Start with the voice of local sweetheart, Nancy Ray, add the skillful guitar work of local radio personality, Audley Williams, and you have a smokin hot, rockin sound.
Bradley Park Concert Series is brought to you by The Fryeburg Business Association, and are offered free to the public thanks to the generosity of the Mulford Fund and the valued sponsors and advertisers. This summer gift has become a tradition in Fryeburg for years now thanks to the hard and dedicated work of Donna Woodward and Nancy Ray.
