Now in its fourth week, Sounds & Sights on Thursday Nights continues its abbreviated free summer concert series Thursday, July 22, from 6:30 until 8:30 p.m. Professional artists perform at seven staged areas located throughout downtown Chelsea showcasing music, magic, and chalk art.
The family-friendly entertainment features Alexander the Magician alongside the free “How to Chalk” seminar at Palmer Commons. All ages are invited to create colorful works of art. This week the theme is “Mythical Creatures” led by professional artist Seth Allison.
The stellar music line-up includes blues singer-songwriter John Latini at Katie’s Korner on the library lawn, and a-rockin’ Johnnie Cash tribute band, Cash is King, at South Street.
The East Middle Street stage features Creole du Nord with a mix of Cajun and Zydeco. And just past the railroad tracks, the country band Fangs & Twang returns to the Glazier Building.
Around the corner, David C. Bloom and Friends perform jazz at the Clocktower Gazebo. Outside of The Grateful Crow restaurant, Ian Stewart performs acoustic blues and roots.
While strolling downtown, visitors can explore the new installation of SculptureWalk Chelsea, a self-guided walking tour of 16 juried sculptures.
Chelsea Area Festivals & Events is a not-for-profit organization that enriches Chelsea, and the surrounding communities, by promoting the presentation of and participation in quality performing and visual arts throughout the year.
