Music in the neighborhood next Friday


Just a reminder that there will be free music in the neighborhood next Friday, June 21.  The outdoor music event will be from 4:00-7:45 pm at Prairie UU Society, 2010 Whenona Drive.  The musicians will be on the Crawford side of the building if the weather is nice or inside if the weather is bad. This event is sponsored by the Dunn’s Marsh Neighborhood Association and Prairie Unitarian Universalist Society.  

Another site is Belmar Park from 4:00-6:00 pm.

You might want to put these events on your calendar so you don’t miss them.  

This is part of the Make Music Madison outdoor event that has over 100 venues.  See the attached map.  For an interactive map go to <>

Unfortunately, the first time I went to this map neither the Prairie UU venue nor the Belmar Hills location came up, but after I put one of the performer’s names in the artist box, the locater showed.

Here are the details for the Prairie UU Society venue.

We’ll probably have some folding chairs to sit on, but you might prefer you own lawn chair or blanket.  Feel free to bring a snacks or a picnic.

This is the line-up:
  • 4:00-4:30 pm – Ron Frye, acoustic guitar and vocals of classic jazz from Broadway, blues, and standards
  • 4:30-4:45 – Rosemarie Lester, a native of Germany, sings in French and German while playing accordion.  Some will be cabaret tunes.
  • 4:45-5:00 – Continental Drifters – Rosemarie Lester on guitar & accordion with Ruth Calden on recorder.  They will be playing and singing folk music from European and Latin American sources.
  • 5:00-5:30 – Grandpa Squeezit – Mike Briggs playing solo button accordion.
  • 5:30-6:00 – Cindy Harrington – Songs of Strength (singer).  Cindy is from the neighborhood and performed at our August 2012 picnic.  Some of this could be a sing-along.
  • 6:00-6:45 – Dark of the Moon Contra-Band – a women’s band playing traditional music for dancing and listening:  polkas, waltzes, jigs, reels (Mary Mullen plays guitar and harmonica in this band.)
  • 6:45-7:15 – Guitars for Vets – Veterans who learned to play the guitar through Guitars for Vets program sing and play folk, country and other well-known tunes.  (could be a sing-along)
