Their unique musical approach brings the past, present and future together in perfect harmony.

This concert is the sixth in a series of eight summer shows. All performances take place on Thursday evenings at 7 p.m. at the Virginia Mary Hayter Village Green, located at 5510 Prairie Stone Parkway across the street from the Sears Centre Arena off Route 72 in the Poplar Creek at 59/90 “Entertainment District.”

Admission is free. Bring a blanket and picnic to the amphitheater. If you are bringing a picnic, do not bring glass bottles, glasses or glass containers for the safety of barefoot patrons.
