Soul to Sinatra: Library concerts return

Summer is here and that means Wilton Library will kick off its 16th annual Summer Music & More Concert Series on Thursday, July 7, from 5 to 6:30. The free concerts will continue on Thursday evenings through July 28. Village Market is the sponsor for the 16th year.

The lineup:

July 7 — Pocketful of Soul from the Stratford area recreates the sounds of ’70s big brass covering songs by Earth Wind & Fire, Chicago, Tower of Power and more. Its most recent appearance was the Branford Festival.

July 14 — The Motown Review Band from Norwalk performs classic hits of the ’60s Detroit sound. The library expects lots of “dancing in the streets.”

July 21 — Creamery Station brings its funk/blues sound and the harmonica playing of Don DeStefano, who may be familiar to audience members from his appearances with the Bernadettes who have performed at the library numerous times.

July 28 — The series wraps up with Echoes of Sinatra with Steve Kazlauskas, back for a fourth appearance. Kazlauskas is a popular storyteller and crooner who brings the Chairman of the Board right into the room.

The free concerts take place rain or shine, in the Brubeck Room and courtyard. Free refreshments are provided by the library with wine donated by Michael Crystal. There is no registration for the concerts which are open to everyone
