WEST BRANCH, IOWA— Grab a friend and pack a picnic… because the music is lively and free! This year’s “Music on the Village Green” kicks off with the award-winning West Branch High School Jazz Band on Monday, May 19.
Following the May 19 performance Herbert Hoover National Historic Site, in cooperation with Main Street West Branch, invites visitors to a series of special musical events each Thursday night in June. The weekly performances feature bluesman Kevin “B.F.” Burt (June 5), folk blues duo Joe and Vicki Price (June 12), mariachi musicians Las Guitarras De Mexico (June 19), and contemporary country performer Danika Holmes featuring Jeb Hart (June 26).
The concerts are free and begin at 7:00 p.m. at Herbert Hoover National Historic Site in West Branch, Iowa.
The outdoor concerts will take place on the village green at the intersection of Parkside Drive and Main Street in historic downtown West Branch. The village green provides a classic small town setting in which to enjoy an evening of free entertainment. There is ample parking nearby, and people are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or ground blankets. In inclement weather the performances will be moved to the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library and Museum, 210 Parkside Drive in West Branch.
