LINKS

    Last year the links page was added for two reasons: the increase in the number of cities included in the concert-in-the park listings, and the request some people made for more information on the performers at the events. The first "Links" section includes links to city websites, as well as the location/address for each city's concert-in-the-park series.

    The second section includes links to websites for artists performing at the concerts, where available. If you are a member of a band appearing at one of the events and you are not included on the list (or you have a "missing link"), please send a message to the e-mail address listed below along with your web address and the date and location of your performance(s). Also, please remember that although every attempt is made to bring you the most current information, all schedules are subject to change. If you are interested in seeing a specific performance, it is recommended that you contact the venue to confirm that it will be taking place.

"Cape Cod Shoreline" 1987, 2005 Dorothy A. Birsic
