Niles Town Plaza Concert Series Kicks off Sunday
Submitted By Michael McNevin
The Niles Town Plaza Summer Concerts are starting up June 26th. The first concert of the season features The Saddle Cats playing Western Swing, and Cellist Gideon Freudmann from Portland Oregon, a songwriter and singer who performs with looping pedals on the cello.
Town Plaza sits in the center of the old train town of Niles, against the hills of Fremont. The lawn amphitheater is in front of a restored 1900's train station museum, and has a perfect view of the musicians, hills, and the historic steam trains that come and go through Niles Canyon.
The five block downtown is Mayberry with a twist. Bring low lawn chairs and blankets, enjoy the sunshine, and spend some time in this old silent film mecca. For those who show up without a plan, not a problem - large shade canopies are provided by the Niles Main Street Association, with plenty of park benches and a long semi-circle bench facing the concert stage.
There are also several restaurants adjacent to the plaza who have 'to go' lunches for your impromptu picnic. Please no alcohol, and please keep the plaza clean. This is a family friendly event!
Future 2011 Niles Town Plaza Summer Concerts are scheduled for July 10, 24; August 7, 14 and September 11.
Concerts are sponsored by Niles Main Street Association and The Niles Golden Spike Music Program; presented by Mudpuddle Music. Visit www.niles.org for more details as they become available.
