For the ninth season, music will be wafting from the garden next to the Children’s Room at the Hyde Park Branch Library on Thursday evenings in July and August from 6:30 to 7:30. In the event of excessive heat or rain, the concerts move into air-conditioned Menino Hall.
The inaugural concert features the Bill Walczak Combo this Thursday, July 10. Bill promises a foot-tapping gathering of classic Country and Irish folk. “Dancing/singing along are strictly encouraged,” he adds.
