JIGS AND REELS TAKE OVER ST. CHARLES, MD ON FRIDAY JULY 19TH WITH FREE CONCERT BY JOHN OLOUGHLIN AND THE BLARNEY STONES BAND

Wednesday, July 17, 2013

The St. Charles Companies presents traditional Irish music, song and stories from John O’Loughlin and the Blarney Stones Band in a free concert at the Sunset Concert Series waterfront venue on Friday, July 19th at 7 PM.  Their classic Irish vocals and instrumentals woven with a “wee bit” of humor will delight all ages at this family-friendly event.

Chick-Fil-A will be on hand to sell delicious chicken sandwiches, soft drinks, and other treats. Local artists will have their wares on display, and other food vendors will be on hand as well.

Romano Vineyard and Winery, a Maryland-bred and family-run vineyard will return to the Sunset Concert Series boardwalk on July 19th in the second of three visits this summer. The vineyard is home to six wine grape varietals – Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Chambourcin, Vidal, Cayuga and Traminette – as well as six table grape varietals and only produces wines from the grapes grown in their vineyard and those of carefully selected custom growers.  Quality over quantity is the hallmark of Romano wines.  (Proof of age required to sample and/or purchase wine and wine cannot be opened in the O’Donnell Lake Restaurant Park venue.)

The Sunset Concert Festival is a summer-long arts festival sponsored by The St. Charles Companies. Featuring a variety of local artists and musical genres, the concerts are being held every Friday night through August 30th.
