Free Outdoor concert series, held at 6:30 p.m. in Johnston Park each Friday in May. Offered by the Allied Arts Council. (423) 472-6587. First-rate performers will take the stage during the 19th annual Evening Shade Concerts in the Park series. The Molly Maguires will kick off the Friday night concert series. Erisa Rei will be opening for The Molly Maguires. The Molly Maguires have been Chattanooga’s premier Irish band for 16 years now, bringing their unique interpretation to songs ranging from the 17th to the 21st century. Julie Kunesh, Casey Phillips, Jon Wimpee and Marc Michael come from a variety of musical backgrounds, but all share a love for Celtic music and a drive to see people smile, sing and dance. Opener Erisa Rei finds her musical home in the rock/Americana genres. Her heart catching chords and lyrics came together in 2007 with a four-song EP titled Backwards. Today she is taking her music to a whole new level with her defining work, Black Ball. Evening Shade is a free, family-friendly entertainment series made possible each year by the Allied Arts Council (AAC) of the Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce. The series is funded in part by local sponsors and under agreement with the Tennessee Arts Commission.
