RAIN DATE UPDATE: After an initially clear forecast Saturday, the forecast during the concert is not great, with thunderstorms rolling through – so we are using our Sunday rain date for our Summer Concert in the Park with John Flynn!!! 

For the second in four concerts in our 2016 Summer Performance Series, Friends of Glen Providence Park is delighted to present activist-songwriter John Flynn! He writes songs on behalf of “the lost and the lonely, the shackled and scarred.” A “quintessential folk singer,” Flynn has been compared Woody Guthrie, Phil Ochs, and Kris Kristofferson. He will perform a set for kids, and a set for adults.

 

We will also celebrate the 5th Anniversary of Friends of Glen Providence Park! We held our first meeting on July 14, 2011 at Seven Stones Cafe in Media – appropriately enough, they are the sponsor for this concert. Join us as we celebrate our first five years with a concert and anniversary cake!

 

Bring a blanket or chair, and relax on the lawn by the historical stage to enjoy a late afternoon concert! After the concert, head into Media for dinner and shopping, just 2 blocks away on State Street.

 

On your way to dinner, check out the Opening Reception for Philadelphia-based muralist and paper cutout artist Joe Boruchow – that’s 6:00-8:00 at the Media Arts Council Gallery, next to Sterling Pig by the park entrance!

 

Thank you to our concert sponsors, Seven Stones CafeMedia Recreation Board, and Media Rotary Foundation; and to Delaware County Parks & Recreation for making the concert possible.
