Duluth concerts get under way

June 8, 2012 by  

People attending the first of the annual series of concerts in Duluth were in for a surprising start to proceedings.

The first concert, which took place on Tuesday June 5, saw Duluth Mayor Don Ness in attendance – complete in a kilt.

Rather than being an eye-opening fashion statement, it was to match the famously unique and much-enjoyed dress of Duluth’s own hit band, Mcinnis’ Kitchen.

As posters throughout the city have announced for weeks in advance, the internationally acclaimed Celtic band started this year’s events in a great atmosphere. Marking the 30th anniversary of the concerts, the group kicked off the annual event in an appropriate style.

The free concerts are a popular annual occasion in the city, with friends and families looking forward to each event. This year Duluth Concerts have a host of bands taking part. It all means there will certainly be something for everyone from June thru August.

Poster printing for each concert has likely already taken place, though with rain always a worry, there are some spare dates in the schedule for August.

Highlight concerts see The Minx perform June 12, Lester River Boys July 3 and Sound Incorporated closing out this year on August 7.

Every concert takes place in the wonderful surroundings of the Chester Bowl on 1800 East Skyline Parkway. Free to enter, people are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs.

The concerts take place every Tuesday from now until August, starting at 7.00pm and running through to 8.30pm.

If the first event is anything to go by, residents are in for a great concert time 2012.
