GREENWOOD — Greenwood's Park and Recreation Department announced the lineup for the 2019 Greenwood Summer Concert Series on Wednesday.

Almost every Saturday evening between June and August, families, residents and visitors are invited to gather in Old Town Greenwood with lawn chairs and blankets to enjoy the live performances.

According to a release, concert-goers can expect a variety of musical genres - country, pop, rock, funk and more - this summer.

“The Summer Concert Series is an opportunity to come together, enjoy the company of fellow residents and visitors, and celebrate good times as a community,” Greenwood Mayor, Mark Myers, said. “Its success is another example of why we must continue to focus on connectivity, walkability and offering a high quality of life,”
