Every Wednesday through the end of August, you can pack a picnic lunch and head over to Buhl Community Park on the North Side to listen to local musicians from 12:15 to 1 p.m.
The free 2014 Solar Concert Series, held in front of the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh, is a project of SLB Radio Productions Inc., the Children’s Museum and the New Hazlett Theater. This is the seventh year for the concert series, which is powered by a solar-energy sound system.
Today musical duo Eve & Tracy will perform. They’ve played together since they met in the Pittsburgh musical troupe, The Riveting Rosies, in 2007. They love old-time jazzers and they show it with Tracy Drach’s rich and smoky vocals and Eve Goodman’s intricate guitar playing.
Here’s the rest of the summer schedule:
Aug. 6: Thoth Trio, a jazz trio performing both original and obscure instrumental jazz works.
Aug. 13: Machete Kisumontao, a Puerto Rican rebel rock and riot salsa band.
Aug. 20: The Wreckids, a folk duo with a touch of comedy
Aug. 27: Steve Pellegrino, standards, rock, folk and other songs not typically heard on an accordian. “I try to play a variety of old standards, blues, jazz, polkas, some originals,” Mr. Pellegrino said.
