Friends of Eastern Promenade kicks off another sensational summer outdoor music series with a performance by singer Renee Coolbrith. Coolbrith and several of her musician friends, including Dan Capaldi and Kris Rodgers, will be playing her originals, along with some well-chosen covers, as boats sail by and you sit with a picnic on the grass celebrating summer. Shows run Thursday nights through the end of August, and the schedule includes Viva & The Reinforcements and Samuel James.
