2018 Summer Concert Series at Stango Park
The City of Lewes is excited to present twelve great bands for the summer concert series in Stango Park for 2018. Every Tuesday evening from June 12 to August 28, there will be a free concert starting at 7:00 p.m. on the open air stage in Stango Park next to the Lewes library.
SHAWN LACY is one of those artists with a voice that haunts you in such a way that you can’t stop listening to his songs over and over. Mixing the classic rock sounds of musicians like Bob Seger and the soulful vibes of artists like Amos Lee along with Lacy’s own Northern-Country music style, Shawn has been a stand out in the Nashville music scene for the past 5 years. First with his duo group Shawn & Hobby Band (who have opened for such acts as Merle Haggard, The Guess Who, Randy Rogers, David Allan Coe, Phil Vassar, Lee Brice, Run DMC and Pat Green among others) and now as a solo artist. Lacy has recently released his first solo record ‘The Two EPs’ along with three music videos ‘Front Porch’ ‘Wish I Could’ and the musically driven short film ‘Gone Like the Night’ which was premiered at the 2014 Nashville Film Festival.
The 2018 summer concert series lineup is sponsored by the City of Lewes, WSFS Bank, and by a grant from the Delaware Division of the Arts, a state agency, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts. The Division promotes Delaware art events on www.DelawareScene.com.
