Freedom Park Concert Series still going strong

"They are very, very fun," she said. "People won't recognize the name, but they should come."

Longtime favorites the Audiostars, billed as "party rock," play at the park on Wednesday, July 29, and the always-popular Refrigerators take the stage on Wednesday, Aug. 10. Another familiar act, alternative rock group SIRSY, performs on Wednesday, July 13.

"I heard they're going national," Burrows said. "This might be the last year we can afford them."

Wylder will play mostly Motown at a Saturday, July 31, show, changing it up a little from the rock and roll the group traditionally plays. Burrows is looking forward to hearing lead singer Kimberly Wylder's take on Motown.

"She is one of the best female singers in the area," Burrows said. "It should be wonderful."

The concert series kicked off on Wednesday, June 22, with the Blisterz. Rain put a damper on that show, but Burrows was happy to report roughly 1,200 people turned out for Flame, a rock band, on Wednesday, June 29. Flame isn't the typical rock band " based in Amsterdam, its members all have some kind of disability.

"Everything from blind to paraplegic to autism," Burrows said. "They're really good. It was just wonderful."

All shows are free and start at 7 p.m. People are encouraged to bring chairs and blankets. For a full schedule, visit www.freedomparkscotia.org.""
