The first concert of the Belfast Summer Nights season will take place Thursday, June 25, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on the corner of High and Main streets. Two two popular groups will perform that evening: Vicky Andres and Max McFarland; and People of Earth.

Andres has been known and respected by guitar players and local music fans in the know for two decades, with a variety of genres explored in groups and projects over the last 25 years. In her newest incarnation, she is working with noted Midcoast bass master Max McFarland. The singer/songwriter fans know and love is still growling and howling, playing off one of the most talented bassists within 100 miles.

People of Earth is a new band featuring Kristen Burkholder, Jeff Weinberger, Alan Boyer, Jason Dean and Mike Whitehead, playing music to dance and groove to.

Everyone is invited to bring dancing shoes, lawn chairs and picnic suppers. Donations are welcome. The series continues every Thursday night through August, with different artists and locations each week. For more information, check out the Facebook page.
