Summer Music 2016


Is there anything better than an outdoor concert on a balmy summer eve? We don’t think so. And we’ve made it easy for you to plan ahead with our list of live music. Head to Essex for spectacular views and lively tunes at Thursdays on the Dock or dance on the beach at Esker Point. Don’t miss The Voice finalist, Braiden Sunshine, kicking off the Midsummer Festival at the Florence Griswold Museum.

There’s music just about every night of the week this summer. Take your pick!
