Thinking about going somewhere for live music this summer? No need to fly to Nashville for country or bluegrass. The Good Life Festival at Boordy Vineyards provides good food, great music and an excellent atmosphere for just $10. Feel free to bring the kids as all guests under 16 have free admission. Come back to the Vineyards all summer, as the Summer Evening Concerts rock every Friday night from May to August.

Booking a trip to Cleveland to check out some classic rock? First, head on over to Parkville any Friday in the summer to see the PCBA Spring Concert Series. The event is free in the backyard of Racer’s Cafe, one of the best craft beer bars in town.     

Shakespeare isn’t only performed in the Globe Theatre. Join Stephanie and Saar at the Gordon Center for A Midsummer Night’s Dream, where the work of famed composer Felix Mendelssohn will be paired with selections from Shakespeare’s beloved comedy performed by actor Stanley Morstein. Tickets for the June 14th event are free, but must be reserved.

Towson Feet on the Street photoIf the fun atmosphere of New Orleans is your thing, swing by Feet on the Street Block Party on Friday nights to experience Towson’s local music scene. There will be beer, wine and cocktails for the adults, and moon bounces and face painting for the kids. It might even start to look like Mardi Gras. Admission is free, and it goes from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. every night through September 25th.

Even the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra is coming up to the County on July 3 and 4 for their Star-Spangled Spectacular at Oregon Ridge. Tickets at the gate will be $20 for adults and $10 for children 12 and under, or you can buy your tickets in advance. Guests get to see the BSO perform classic American music with a spectacular fireworks show after the performance.

The Lurman Summer Concert Series, free every Saturday and Sunday from May to August, has all of the above; blues, funk, country, R&B, and classic jazz are on tap all summer long. The Lurman Woodland Theatre in Catonsville is your one stop shop for all things music this summer.

Baltimore County’s more than 80 summer concerts have everything you’re looking for; from Reggae in White Marsh to Folk in Catonsville, all you need for a summer of music is right here in the County.
