Music by the River to open May 12

The Friends of Belle Isle State Park recently announced the 2018 Music by the River schedule. The family-friendly outdoor concerts are staged in the waterfront picnic area at Belle Isle State Park, 1632 Belle Isle Road, Lancaster, May through August.

“We urge folks to kick back and enjoy an evening at the park,” said music committee co-chairman Robert Mason Jr. “The series will again offer a variety of entertainment.”

The concert series will open May 12 with acoustic folk, country and rock by Out on a Limb from a few rivers over. On May 19, Wildflower Honey from just down river takes the stage with Americana and bluegrass.

On June 9, the Tom Euler Trio from across the river will bring blues to the stage. On June 16, Faron Hamblin from up the river will bring his solo country show to the park…
