YARDLEY BOROUGH >> Experience Yardley’s Music on Main outdoor music and performance series is back for its fifth season and is again bringing a diverse array of live music, performance, and culture for free family-friendly entertainment right in the heart of the Yardley Borough’s vibrant downtown.
This year features top quality bands playing dixieland jazz, four different styles of latin music, alternative rock, blues, R&B, funk, soul, calypso and reggae, bluegrass, roots rock, and more.
The Music on Main summer downtown series happens every Saturday and starts on Saturday, June 1 from 6 to 8 p.m. with the New Vintage Dixieland Band from New Jersey.
The series continues June 8 with Magdaliz and Her Latin Ensemble Crisol (Philadelphia), June 15 with Ryan Tennis (Philadelphia), June 22 with Conjunto Philadelphia (Philadelphia), June 29 with Yardley-based, but nationally-acclaimed Peter V Blues Train, July 6 with Amazin’ Grace (NJ), July 13 with De Tierra Caliente (Philadelphia/Columbia), Raised By Wolves (Philadelphia), July 27 with Trinidelphia (Philadelphia) and August 3 with Ja-Tun & Random Acts of Soul (PA/NJ.) The season wraps up on August 10 with Tie Dye Hillbilly Dance Party (New Hope).
Rain dates are planned for the Sunday following each scheduled performance when possible. There is even a text alert service that concertgoers can opt into for last minute weather and schedule updates.
Music on Main is BYOC (Bring Your Own Chair) - first-come, first-seated - and there is plenty of room for all, both close to the music and otherwise. It’s also BYOB and BYOD (Dinner), and attendees are encouraged to take advantage of the many eateries and beverage purveyors nearby in the Borough. Experience Yardley supplies buckets of chalk for the artistically inclined of all ages to enjoy as well.
Music on Main is free and open to the public thanks to the robust support of the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts & Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance who awarded a fourth grant to support the performances, a grant from Visit Bucks County, and 2019 Season
