2019 Summer Concerts on the Campus
With the long and wicked Winter of '18/'19 finally loosening it's icy grip on us, it's time to get excited for another great season of free live music on our beautiful, historic Campus in the center of town. The Mt. Morris Jamboree aims to please, bringing a wide variety of music to 13 Friday nights for our eighth Summer running.
We're pleased to announce that Aireloom Music Studios will be helping provide sound for a number of acts this year. All shows are free to the public with the party starting at 6 pm, welcoming a different group providing food and drink concessions every Friday, mostly by local charitable organizations. Several local small businesses will often be on hand to sell their wares, too.
You'll want to show up early to peruse the nearby Mt. Morris Community Farmers' Market, open from 4-7 before the concerts and make time to visit the Encore Art Gallery in Old Sandstone, featuring a new show for each of the three Summer months.
All performances start at 7 pm and run until at least 9. Here's your lineup of bands for 2019, opening with a grand blast of joyful noise courtesy of returning Jamboree favorites from Wisconsin on:
