City, Guitars USA host summer concert series
SALISBURY — If you missed the opening act in the Bell Tower Concert Series Thursday evening, don’t worry.
The free concerts will be staged every second and third Thursday through Oct. 16 at Bell Tower Park.
Salisbury Parks and Recreation has teamed up with Guitars USA to feature dozens of local artists who sing and play everything from Motown to rock to folk and more. Each concert will feature two different bands of different musical genres.
“This is the first year for us to try a concert series,” says Teri Shaw, Parks and Recreation supervisor. “We hope it will be a chance for families to unwind together as their busy week comes to an end.”
Concert-goers are encouraged to bring their own chairs, food and refreshments to Bell Tower Park at West Innes and South Jackson streets. The events are family-friendly and alcohol-free.
The next concert is set for 5 to 7 p.m. July 17. Watch the city’s Facebook and Twitter pages for the names of bands playing and other information.
