Country band kicks off concerts in the park
Pack a picnic, gather friends and family, and enjoy an array of music when the Summer Concerts in the Park series returns to Ober Park on Thursday. Presented and funded by the Vashon Park District in association with Vashon Events, the lineup of six shows slated for Thursday evenings will showcase bands featuring different genres but all designed to get folks dancing. Mark your calendars.
June 19: The Country Lips. Seattle’s Country Lips sound and play like classic country rowdy musicians. The live, wild shows by the eight-
member band are becoming legendary, according to music promoter Pete Welch. Their music is fast moving, played on violin, guitar and keyboard, accompanied by vocals that inspire foot-stomping dancing.
July 10: Polecat
Aug. 7: The Cumbieros.
Aug. 28: Clinton Fearon
Sept. 4: The Portage Philharmonic
Though not a concert, on July 24, Shakespeare in the Park will present the play “Othello.”
