The Muncie Three Trails Music Series
September 2, 2016 - September 3, 2016
National Recording Artists Headline Muncie Three Trails Music Series
The Muncie Three Trails Music Series returns in 2016 with another stellar line-up of critically acclaimed national recording artists who will perform in a series of four free concerts in downtown Muncie.
Pokey Lafarge and his band will bring their eclectic mix of early jazz, hot swing, ragtime, country blues, and Americana to the Canan Commons stage on Sat., Sept. 3rd. Lafarge has appeared numerous times on Prairie Home Companion, has performed on The Late Show with David Letterman, and contributed to the soundtrack for HBO’s Boardwalk Empire. He is also a favorite of Jack White, formerly of the White Stripes, who signed him for an EP on his Third Man Records’ label. Lafarge’s latest album, Something in the Water, came out last year on Rounder Records, the premier “American roots” label. The Halfstepsisters, from Indianapolis, will open the show.
The Muncie Three Trails Music Series is dedicated to presenting outstanding national acts free of charge, and also encourages attendees to take advantage of the concert venues’ proximity to our downtown and the three beautiful trails that give the series its name: the White River Greenway, Cardinal Greenway, and Muncie Arts and Culture Trail. We hope attendees will heed our slogan, “Explore the Trails, Enjoy the Music.” For complete series information, including songs and videos of the performing artists, can be found at www.munciethreetrails.com. The Muncie Three Trails Music Series is a non-profit joint venture of the Muncie Downtown Development Partnership, Muncie Arts and Culture Council, and Rick Zeigler, series founder and organizer.
