Blues in The District

June 14, 2019 @ 5:30 pm9:30 pm

22nd Anniversary Season!

Celebrate the 22nd season of The District’s Blues in the District Concert Series.

Presented by Blessing Health System.

Friday, June 14th, Blues in the District kicks off its 22nd season with Harper and Midwest Kind.

Join us on from 5:30-9:30 in Washington Park for free live music at this Quincy-favorite community event!

Award-winning Australian singer/songwriter Peter D. Harper — known in the music world simply as “Harper” — creates a heady mix of roots music through his creative use of the harmonica and the haunting drone of the didgeridoo. Harper’s latest CD, “Show Your Love,” features 11 original road-tested tracks recorded with his well-traveled Detroit-based touring band “Midwest Kind.” “Show Your Love” hit # 3 on Billboard, USA and remained in the Top Ten for an incredible six months!

Harper possesses a powerful soulful voice and a deep, almost mystical approach to music that some might say has evolved into its own genre. Harper calls it “World Blues” — a rich musical stew of ‘50s rhythm and blues, a ‘60s message of love and unity, and ‘70s funky soul, stirred up with masterful, virtuoso harmonica and the deep, woody, percussive tones of the didgeridoo, served up in a feast of timeless mystery.

Washington Park from 5:30pm – 9:30pm
Free to the public
