First summer concert slated for June 17

Once again the excitement of live music will be added to downtown Tyrone as the Fun Friday concert series premiers on June 17 at 7 p.m. in the City Hotel Park at Pennsylvania Avenue and 10th Street.
The Maxwell Strait Duo from State College will begin the series in the downtown park.
According to a press release provided by Tyrone Regional Arts Council, lead performer Ted McCloskey has been a regular in the central Pennsylvania music scene for years, bringing his own special style to the rock, country and jazz numbers he performs. Ted has traveled the east coast performing and writing music, an experience which led to the release of his first CD. Currently, Ted and company are regulars at Zenos and perform annually in the Central PA Arts Festival.
The June 17 concert will feature Ted along with one of his favorite co-performers. The concert is sponsored by Joybeans Coffee Shop on 10th Street, which will also serve as a rain location for the program.
Celebrating its 20th year, the Tyrone Regional Arts Council brings to the Tyrone area, the Fun Friday concert series along with Summer Sundays at Reservoir Park and family outdoor movies at the M & T parking lot next to Joybeans.
Summer Sundays at Reservoir Park’s amphitheater will feature the music of the big bands, Celtic Scotland, rock, folk and country. The first Summer Sundays concert is scheduled on July 10. The 18-piece big band “Keystone Society of Swing” will open the series.
