SOUTH ABINGTON TWP. — The Coal Town Rounders will bring its bluegrass sounds to the Hillside Park stage at 6 p.m. July 6 for the third show in this year’s Lakeside Wednesday Concert Series, presented by the Abington Area Joint Recreation Board (AAJRB). Admission to the family-friendly event is free, thanks to volunteer management and sponsorship from local media organizations and businesses.

The series opened on June 22 with The Exact Change band. The Luongo Brothers band is slated to continue the series at 6 p.m. June 29.

NEPA-based quartet Coal Town Rounders has shared the stage with a range of nationally touring acts, including Emmy Lou Harris, Carolina Chocolate Drops, The Lumineers, The Grascals, and The Roys, and budding groups such as Cabinet, The Tillers, Wood and Wire and The Barefoot Movement.

Grafting its passion for Appalachian music and harmony singing to 21st century sensibilities, the band makes its own moves in a genre that’s heavy on tradition. With a foundational repertoire of bluegrass material one might expect in a group twice their age, the band is poised to expand the reach and relevance of traditional music with its unique and hard-driving sound.

The AAJRB has a variety of genres slated for the 11-week family-friendly series, which is unfolding throughout the summer – everything from indie, to jazz, to classics through the decades.

The park, located on State Route 307 (Winola Road), adjacent to both Clarks Summit State Hospital and the Abington Senior Center, is handicapped-welcoming. Concert-goers should bring a picnic blanket or chair and are invited to stop by early to explore the walking trails and other park amenities. Attendees can bring a canned good donation for the Dalton Food Pantry and enjoy canoeing on the lake. Although tailgating is welcome, food will be available for purchase from concert vendors.
