Long’s Park – 2012
Over their 50-year history this may be the finest group of musicians ever brought to the Long’s Park stage in just one season. This summer treat yourself to 14 nights of absolutely stunning, eclectic music… from blues, jazz, Southern rock, bluegrass, patriotic, country and zydeco to Celtic, world music, gypsy and Latin jazz. And each and every concert is free, thanks to our sponsors and your support of the Long’s Park Art & Craft Festival.
