AUGUST 15TH - KOLIBA
Koliba is an exciting Afro Pop band featuring musicians from West Africa who teach audiences African songs and dances.  Much of the music is original and rooted in traditional African rhythms and styles. Leader Mohammad Kalifa Kamara from Guinea West Africa is a Master drummer and dancer and through Koliba's music and dance audiences are transported to Africa. Koliba has performed at Cambridge River Festival, First Nights in Boston Worcester, Providence and Boston Arts Festival.  This concert is Co-Sponsored by the Merrimack Public Library in conjunction with the end of their summer reading program.


AUGUST 29TH - BRICKYARD BLUES
Since 1997, Brickyard Blues has been evolving its sound and building a following on stages in New England. We mix influences including Texas & Chicago Blues, Stax-era soul music, old-school R&B, with some roots & rockabilly thrown in. 2006 marked the release of the bands 9 original song CD “Naughty”. In addition to getting airplay on radio stations throughout New England, their original song, Alabama Blues Man, was picked as the Favorite Blues Song at radio stations in Orlando Florida, and Warsaw, Indiana, and has even been featured on a radio station in Belgium that showcases American roots-rock music. It's R&B plus a whole lot more.
