Carrying a folk-music theme, this Lents Music in the Park series is pleasing folks with top musicians.

This concert series runs through September. This year, it’s produced in cooperation with the Portland FolkMusic Society.

On September 7, folks who came by the Lents Park Gazebo (SE 92nd Avenue & Holgate Boulevard) at 3:00 p.m. were treated to an all-star lineup, including “River City Folk” radio show host and musician Tom May. Sharing the stage will be Mary Flower, considered one of the finest proponents of acoustic blues in the country; LynnAnn Hyde and Stu Kinzel, “guardians of traditional Acoustic Blues”; and the Ragtime music of Henry and Moggy.

Lents Neighborhood Association chair Dewey Akers introduces the concert series acts in Lents Park.

Still more great music to come
The series continues on Sunday, September 14 from 3 p.m. until 6 p.m.

Enjoy the sounds of Woody Guthrie Tribute Concert. Woody Guthrie lived in Lents while he wrote for the BPA in 1941. Also, enjoy The Wanderers – Murlin Allen, Ken Vigil, Joe Seamons; and Renegade Minstrels.
