The City of New Bedford in partnership with The Z present Summer Sound Series, free concerts in Custom House Square in downtown New Bedford!

The Jethros realized their common destiny while collaborating in a backup band and have since become a fixture in the folk music scene of New Bedford and nearby places. Homer Jethro sings and plays guitar, banjo, and mouth organ; Rufus Jethro sings and plays trumpet, trombone, and uke, Skillet Jethro sings and caresses the drums, Boney Jethro whistles and plays fiddle, bones, and other small percussion; and Gaston Jethro plays bass as though it were seven distinct instruments. Together they are The Jethros, and they are delighted to present their folk/blues/alt/soul/swing-jazz/bluegrass/funk/country/mariachi/klezmer stylings to one and all. They take the stage from 4 - 7PM.

Before The Jethros, Ian Legge (aka The Punk Cellist), will perform from 2:15-3PM! Ian is a classically trained musician and punk drummer hailing from New Bedford. As a graduate of Berklee College of Music, Ian combines his formal training with love of all things punk. Recent recording band collabs include Sum 41, Red City Radio, Keep Flying and Lesibu Grand.

The beer garden is open 2–7PM. Bring a lawn chair and lounge in the park, or sit under the tent and have a drink from the on-site bar. Meet friends, grab take-out, and enjoy the music!
