Freedom Hawk to play Thursday

A s summer vacation comes to a close, so does Granville’s summer concert series.

But those savoring the Thursday night music have one more chance to do so before it’s all said and done.

Freedom Hawk, a local group offering a combination of rock styles and country, will finish off the concerts. The band was one of four whose original show was canceled due to rain, but the members were able to reschedule. Members of the community can bring chairs to sit and relax or dance to the music.

Village Clerk Rick Roberts said despite the unfortunate weather, the series was a hit.

“I think it was another successful year; some years Mother Nature poses more of a problem,” he said. He mentioned that the events are beneficial to the community in terms of fundraising and more.

“A lot of goodwill gets done through the concerts. Hopefully next year we will have a little better weather, but I still think there’s a lot of good that comes out of it,” he said.

Most bands were able to reschedule their shows for later dates, but the Starline Rhythm Boys, a Vermont-based trio, did not get a chance.

Freedom Hawk will play Thursday in Veterans Park from 7 to 9 p.m., in a concert that’s free and open to the public. Check for a weather cancelation on the sign in front of the park or on the Sentinel’s Facebook page.
