Boulder Lodge and the Park Center are pleased to announce an upcoming virtual concert featuring Nashville recording artist Andrew Salgado. Many of you will remember him from the 2019 Northwoods Music and Art Festival here at Boulder Lodge or his performance at the Park Center. He is one hell of a musician and performer.
In these difficult times, some of us have been affected more that others. Musicians and music venues have been hit particularly hard. Musicians are self-employed and are generally not eligible for unemployment benefits. If they’re not working, they’re not able to pay their bills. The same is true for the venues that have been unable to open. The bills keep coming, but the doors are shut.
In an effort to come up with new and imaginative ways for live music and musicians to survive, this project was hatched. Proceeds from this concert will be going to the musicians and the Park Center, so please, buy a ticket, make some popcorn, and experience a virtual live concert to support arts!
Long live live music
Tickets are $12.00. To order your ticket, Click Here Be sure to select the concert on November 13th, benefiting the Park Center.
