Our FREE Friday Concerts on the Lemont Village Green for 2016
will begin Friday, June 3rd for our 16th year.
Concerts are from 7:30 pm to 9 pm.
We hope that ready-to-eat food by Food for Thought, a new "food truck" will be at the Village Green for delicious supper offerings.
The concerts from 2015 are listed below. Watch this space after March 30 for the listing for 2016. Interested performers are welcome to email email@example.com to see about booking. All musicians play for the fun of playing in a terrific venue.
We have an exciting line-up with some who have performed before and several new-to-us. The schedule is filled for thirteen Friday nights. Picnickers are always welcome. Concerts are free, but a basket is passed to help support the Granary renovation projects.
