Music in the Garden 2015

Load up the kids, the blankets and the lawn chairs! For the eighth consecutive year, the Holt Community Arts Council will present Music In the Garden, its free summer concerts at Veterans Memorial Gardens.

The family-friendly Thursday night concert series will feature a first-rate, diverse lineup, said Arts Council President Kara Hope. “We have a couple of returning favorites and a couple of artists who will be new to Music in the Garden,” she said. “We try to bring in something fresh every summer, and our audiences seem to appreciate the effort.”

The Arts Council is an independent, all-volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit with no paid employees. Funding for the concert series comes through direct contributions from local businesses and individuals, from grants, and support from the Delhi DDA. There

is no charge for admission or parking, but donations are appreciated. For more information, visit

Music In the Garden 2015

July 9 – Hullabaloo
Fun, high-energy music – everything from Talking Heads to reggae- and Latin-infused original tunes.

July 16 – Twyla Birdsong
This versatile Lansing-based vocalist sings anything beautifully, including jazz, show tunes and rock. But she is best known for singing the blues.

July 23 – Flat River Big Band
This 17-piece band will bring the sounds of Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, and other 1940s favorites to life.

July 30 – Red Sea Pedestrians
Engaging and fun but hard to categorize, this band draws on influences as diverse as American roots, klezmer and Eastern European folk.

All shows begin at 7 p.m. in the amphitheater at Veterans Memorial Gardens at 2074 Aurelius Road, Holt, behind the Delhi Township Community Services Building.
