The Bedford Summer Concert series heads into the 2023 season finale planned for tomorrow night (Thursday) on the lawn across from the Bedford Free Public Library.
The fourth installment of the series will showcase Renee & The Renegades. Playing both original and cover songs, Renee & The Renegades is said to have a “unique sound,” described as “Americana.” Renee Leavitt, the band’s lead vocalist, is a country singer that has sung the national anthem at the Boston Red Sox in each of the past two seasons.
The concert is planned for Thursday at 7 p.m. with the band setting up next to the Kids’ Club side of the Town Center building on Mudge Way. Concert goers are welcome to bring chairs and blankets to watch the concert from the grass of E-field, the softball field adjacent to the Town Playground. The music is appropriate for all ages. An inflatable obstacle course – fun for kids and adults – will be available for additional fun while enjoying the music. Snacks and refreshments will be available onsite for purchase from the Frank W. Thompson Masonic Lodge. Check the Rec Department Facebook Page for any cancellations or updates due to weather.
The Thursday Summer Concert series has been highly attended over the past month. Bedford Recreation Director Josh Smith said the attendance at the Thursday Summer Concert series is “the biggest attendance we’ve had in years.” Along with next year’s summer concert series, the Recreation Department is busy planning events, activities, and facilities for adults, children, and the community year-round.
There will be another chance for live music with the Recreation Department on Friday evening when The Funky Bunch, an ensemble of Bedford High School students, will be playing starting at 5 p.m. at Springs Brook Park. The entertainment is free with admission or membership to Springs Brook Park.
Everyone is encouraged and invited to “bring a picnic and enjoy a music-filled evening” around town on Thursday and Friday.
