The annual concert series at Anson B. Nixon Park started on Wednesday, June 22, and it was a terrific way to begin the summer. The performers were father and son Ken and Brad Kolodner, along with Alex Lacquement, playing "progressive Appalachian" (I especially liked the sound of the hammered dulcimer).
We were delighted to run into Kyle Kogut, who just received his MFA degree and is back in the area teaching. He was at the concert with his mother, Eileen.
The food provider for the evening was Chef-a-Topia. Unfortunately their food truck broke down en route to the park, so a lot of people's stomachs were rumbling until the caterers arrived and fired up the BBQ grill. For dessert we had La Michoacana popsicles served by Noelia Scharon and her visiting Aunt Rosita.
The free concerts continue every Wednesday starting at 7 p.m.
