Here it is, the 2022 Classic 96 Live on the Square Concert Series line up! We couldn’t be more excited:
The series kicks off June 25th with Fairfield’s own Jonas Magram and Steve Hillis performing an evening of swing, Latin, and blues standards from the great American songbook. A staple of the local music scene, Magram and Hillis are known for their musicianship and the effortless way they weave from genre to genre.
July 16th Live on the Square welcomed Des Moines singer songwriter John Paul Burtch. From Seattle to New York to Istanbul, Burtch has a world of influences he credits for his style, including classic rock, indie, folk, blues and international music. With a catalog of covers and original songs, this will be a magical night of music.
The ladies take center stage July 30th with two talented acts. First it’s The Chickadees, a two-person band based out of Southeast Iowa who perform a variety of original and cover songs of varying genres and artists. Then its Brittany Sword, an American Indie Rock singer-songwriter from Oskaloosa Iowa. Brittney plays familiar favorites as well as new sultry original’s you’re sure to love! This will be an amazing night on the square.
Society of Broken Souls, the Folk Noir songwriting duo of multi-instrumentalists Dennis James and Lauryn Shapter come home August 20th. While they have their roots as an acoustic duo, their live show has blossomed into an expansive setting for weathered characters, tough topics, and quiet beauty. As they take turns singing lead and harmony, the pair paints a vast emotional landscape, ranging from the rebellious and jubilant to the introspective and heartfelt.
The season concludes September 10th with the return of A Flash in a Pan, the Iowa City based bluegrass/folk band to Fairfield. Flash in a Pan blends contemporary music with traditional folk and grass motifs. Their original compositions combine elements of reggae, country, folk and grass forms to produce tunes with a modern sensibility and respect for tradition. From their first appearance in Fairfield to now, they have always been a crowd favorite.
