Sunday night bandshell concerts a relaxing way to enjoy a summer’s eve

The weatherman cooperated for the first of the summer Sunday night bandshell concerts in Southampton and Port Elgin.

Every Sunday evening throughout the summer, residents and visitors can enjoy the unique sounds of some of the area’s best bands at the Emmet McGrath Pavilion (Port Elgin) and at the Fairy Lake Pavilion (Southampton).  All that’s needed is a lawnchair.

They may be few in number but they produce a big sound as Harvest Moon took to the stage at the Rotary Pavilion in Southampton on June 30th.  Playing a wide variety of music from old standards to rock classics, along with a little toe-tapping country thrown in, many in the audience were given to singing along to the tunes that they knew.
