PPS Announces Music in the Garden

Providence, RI –  The Providence Preservation Society (PPS), in partnership with the Mile of History Association (MoHA), announced Music in the Garden, a series of five summer-evening concerts at the Shakespeare’s Head Garden at 21 Meeting St. The mid-week performances will help support a colonial revival garden and offer an opportunity to enjoy outdoor music on Providence’s East Side.

The Wednesday evening concerts will feature an eclectic mix of musical genres by local musicians, from May through September. These include jazz and R&B vocals from singer/ songwriter Alexus Lee; Americana from Saddle Up the Chicken; and traditional African music infused with modern, Latin and Brazilian influences from Sidy Maiga. Cowboy and Lady duo Tyler-James Kelly and Jess Powers smolder with country blues, and Dave Zinno and friends wrap it all up with an acoustic jazz trio. The first performance is May 18, at 7 pm.

The garden is located at 21 Meeting St. between Benefit and N. Main Streets. Garden gates open at 6:30 pm, music will start at 7 pm. Tickets are $15 for the general public and $12 for PPS and MoHA members. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own chairs as seating is not provided.
