To get us all back in the live music groove, RiverRocks is offering a free outdoor concert in my back yard on Saturday, July 17th.  We will follow a gathering of local ceramic artists meeting here earlier, and we’ll start the music sometime soon after 7 pm.  We hope you can join us!  

Carpooling recommended.  2675 SW Fairmont Drive.  Walk around the north (uphill) side of the house.  Bring any outdoor chairs /blankets you might need for sitting on the grass, and any drinks you’d like.  Self-sufficiency highly recommended since your hostess will be on stage and your would-be host will be in Corsica.  😉 

We ask that you be vaccinated to attend this concert.  None of us wants to have to police the otherwise-necessary social distancing, we’ll all be sharing the same two bathrooms, and none of us wants any of you to be unsafe at this event.  

Saturday, July 17th,     2675 SW Fairmont Drive.

RSVP’s appreciated!     We will pass the hat to raise voluntary donations for the local chapter of the NAACP.

RiverRocks plays songs we love, originals and covers, to open and lift our hearts and make you smile, laugh, dance, and maybe shed a tear.   Laurie Childers, Mina Carson, Bill Veley, Michael Everett, and Tracy Doughtery  will be perform on July 17; next time Joe Casprowiak will be with us too.
