FAMILY FUN, MUSIC & ARTMAKING = great music and lots of fun. Come-as-you-are/kick back and spend a free-&-easy-time with your family, friends and neighbors/go-when-you’re-ready.  We’ll have art supplies out and ready.

When—Thursdays June 27 & July 25 @ 6pm.  IT’S FREE though we’ll pass the hat.

Where—The artPARK, 325 Main Street with a view of the Coshocton County Court Square. There’s always shade in the evening and almost always a cooling breeze after the heat of the day—in other words, small town summer perfection. Rain site under the tent at the Pomerene Center for the Arts, 317 Mulberry Street.
New this year—order your family picnic from Sorrell’s On The Square​. (740) 575-4504. They’ll deliver to the artPARK!
June 27  THE WAYFARERS – American Roots Music

Hailing from rural Southeast Ohio, The Wayfarers emerged onto the scene in early 2010 playing their own form of American Roots music. People of all ages will be drawn to the sounds of thumping washtub bass, driving guitars, sawing fiddles, and rich harmonies.With old-time radio shows setting the example, their style encompasses Appalachian dance music, traditional mountain fiddle tunes, and pre-bluegrass music of the 1920’s – resulting in a dose of nostalgic Americana.

June 27  FLOGO SHAGGINS – Funk Music

Here’s what Flogo Shaggins says on their about page, “We are a Columbus band delivering deep cuts and b-sides from the funk canon, as well as original quantum leapers from the 4th dimension.”

Translation: Flogo Shaggins is a Columbus based band that plays

  • lots of songs you’re not likely to hear on the radi0, 
  • many from the less important side of a pop single record (if you even remember or know about single vinyl records).
  • as well as original music that makes large leaps forward outside the range of ordinary experience. 

We’re talking funk music here ” a popular genre of the 1970s and 1980s technically defined by a combination of African American soul music and a strong syncopated beat. But the definition offered by musical legend Prince hits closer to home: ”If you can describe it, it ain’t funky”. Funk is defined less by a strict set of stylistic rules and more by an attitude, with of course a beat that encourages DANCING…Gotta have that funk.” from History of Funk Music by Christopher Muscato
