Coming this summer, free concerts on City Hall plaza

Mark your calendars! Beginning in July, Seattle Presents free concerts are back for the summer. Grab your lunch, enjoy some sun and hear great music on the plaza at City Hall every Thursday, noon to 1:30 p.m., July 12 through Aug. 30. In case of rain, most concerts will be held in City Hall’s lobby.

The concerts kick off July 12 with veteran, all-star soul band Wheedle’s Groove. Get down to the grooves of some of Seattle’s finest funk and soul musicians who were part of our city’s thriving soul music set of the ’60s and ’70s.

The performances continue through August with the sumptuous voice of singer-songwriter Shelby Earl; Sambatuque’s vibrant and eclectic blend of music from Brazil and the Caribbean; rising star of the Seattle indie-singer-songwriter scene Kris Orlowski and more. The concerts wind down on Aug. 30 with the smoldering, alt-country tunes of acoustic duo Kasey Anderson with guest Star Anna, the perfect soundtrack for a late-summer afternoon.
