The Old Creamery Theatre will host Courtyard Concerts this summer, one Friday per month, May through September featuring local bands and food. The concert will be free to everyone with a ticket to that Friday night’s Main Stage theatre performance or $5 admission without a theatre ticket.

The shows will all take place from 5-7 pm in the Old Creamery’s Courtyard on the following evenings: May 9, June 13, July 18, August 8, and September 12. The first Courtyard Concert of the season features Lojo Russo.

Lojo Russo is described “as a songwriter with a lot of lyrical power, a guitarist with powerful playing and a singer with one heckuva voice who performs with the energy and rocking empowerment of Ani DiFranco, the graceful folksiness of the Indigo Girls and the gritty blues of Susan Tedeschi.”  Russo is comfortable making music no matter where she is - whether playing festivals or front steps, coffeehouses or concert halls her music, her style and her stories never cease to amaze and amuse. Her enormous stage energy, powerful voice and percussive playing style belie her small frame. As one promoter put it, “This is a one woman show that shows you only need one woman.”

Each show will also feature a different food vendor. The first Courtyard Concert on May 9 will feature Maggie’s Farm Wood-Fired Pizza.

Call the box office at 319-622-6262 or go online to www.oldcreamery.com for more details. Find out more about Lojo Russo at lojorusso.com
