The Columbia Association (CA) is sponsoring a series of Lakefront Lunchtime Concerts on Wednesdays from noon to 2 p.m., running from May 11 thru July 6.
And those of us with music-loving pooches may bring them along to do some toe-tapping and paw-tapping. The CA will even try to provide water dishes—left over from Dog Day Afternoon (which unfortunately was rained out).
The musical lineup represents a wide variety of musical styles, including rock, folk and jazz. The May 18 event will feature David LaFleur, a singer-songwriter (and friend to his "fearless wonderdog Paco") from Charles Town, W.V. Some notes from David's bio:
"With a rich tenor voice and a mastery of the guitar, dobro, mandolin, and dulcimer, David LaFleur has been performing his unique mixture of folk, Appalachian, blues, and bluegrass for over 20 years.
"Superb musicianship and an artful array of thoughtful and sometimes hilarious songs mixed with dynamic stage presence and dry wit keep LaFleur in high demand at concerts and festivals.
"He has recently released his third CD, 'Shepherd's Pie' and presently lives in the Blue Ridge Mountains of West Virginia with his fearless wonderdog, Paco."
The Lakefront Wednesdays lunchtime concert series is part of CA’s welcome initiative to help new and current residents learn more about Columbia’s history and vision and encourage them to become involved in their community.
