This years Music on the Porches will be held on September 27th.
It is the sixth year of this village wide happening which celebrates music, art and culture in the Valley!
Merchants and residents throughout the Village of Peninsula,welcome musicians to their porches to
“make a joyful noise” and fill the valley
with music of all genres throughout the day and into the evening.
A village wide event, brought to you through a collaboration between
Peninsula Area Chamber of Commerce,
Peninsula Foundation, and with financial support from the Ohio Arts Council. We welcome you to stop by, take a workshop, bring your favorite picnic blanket or chair to sit and listen to music, take in a concert, visit our shops and galleries, come spend a day in our village!
This year we will add local food vendors so you can grab something to eat while catching your favorite song. Monies from the Ohio Art Council will be used to sponsor interactive and educational workshops at The Bronson Church.
The G.A.R. Hall will host an evening concert featuring Dom Flemons formally of
The Carolina Chocolate Drops. You can purchase tickets for the evening event through www.peninsulahistory.org
or by calling 330-657-2528.
A multi-instrumentalist, Dom plays banjo, guitar, harmonica, fife, bones, bass drum, snare drum and quills, in addition to singing.
Dom says he would like to use the traditional forms of music he has heard and immersed himself in over the years to create new soundscapes that generate interest in old-time folk music. Focusing very much on creating music that is rooted in history but taking a contemporary approach, Dom hopes to reexamine what traditional music can become.
A schedule of all of the days performances, including times and locations with a little information about each artists will be coming soon. If you haven’t been down to visit us in the Valley lately, why not make Music on the Porches your reason to come back!
Here are a few pictures from last year’s event! We will see you soon!
