Traditional Irish Session Cancelled Due to Weather–Sorry!

19 Jul
Update: Tuesday’s Nature Detectives is cancelled due to rain.

Hi All, we’ve just made the hard call to cancel our 3rd Traditional Irish Session at Magazine Beach. We believe that even though it’s truly cooler at the park, the highly publicized 95 degree F. temperatures, high humidity, and possible rain and thunderstorms will discourage attendance. Sorry to cancel this AMAZING event. Our 3rd Traditional Irish Session will now happen in 2020. Come swim and splash in the spray deck today at the park to cool off. 

Come beat the heat on Magazine Beach! On Sunday, July 21 at 5:30pm, we’ll host our third annual Traditional Irish Session featuring musicians Sean Clohessy, Tina Lech, Ted Davis, John Coyne and the Rebecca McGowan Irish Dance Company. Bring the family and cool off in the pool. Then join us in shade for music and dance!

The Busted Jug Band in Concert

11 Jul

The Busted Jug Band will perform in a free concert at Magazine Beach Park on Sunday, July 14th at 5:30pm. The show is designed to provide fun and entertainment for all ages. A five-piece, all acoustic group, the Busted Jug Band is a throw-back to the African-American street bands of the early 20th Century, with their own theatrical flair.

The show will be a festive romp through early 20th century music featuring early blues, proto-country, traditional New Orleans Jazz and Harlem swing. All played on kazoos, washboard and washtub bass; alongside harmonica, mandolin, banjo-ukulele, squeeze box and a trunk full of musical oddities and noise makers. Strong group vocals and swinging rhythms; Vaudevillian sight gags, jokes and colorful stage attire (top hats and derbies) round out the show. To find out more about the band and hear their music, go to www.thebustedjugband.com

Bring the family, a picnic and join in the fun!
