Concert: Hard Swimmin' Fish @ Bluemont Concerts

Hard Swimmin' FishThe Bluemont Concert Series announces its 2017 season of Sunday evening concerts on the grounds of the Loudoun County Courthouse, located at 18 East Market Street in historic, downtown Leesburg.

Hard Swimmin' Fish is a blues quartet that has been making music together for over fifteen years. The band plays a range of styles covering the country blues of Mississippi and The Piedmont, the urban blues of Chicago, and funk infused varieties with roots in New Orleans' second line. This versatility allows Hard Swimmin' Fish to offer either acoustic or electric performances and play any venue.

The juxtaposition of old and new is also evident in both the band members and their play-list. The playing and singing of guitarist/vocalist Demian Lewis is deeply rooted in traditional styles and is powered by the sophisticated rhythms of drummer Jason Walker, and the virtuosity of bassist Randy Ball. Together they churn out a vibrant combination of originals, rearranged traditional material, and recognizable standards.

All are welcome at these family-oriented events and are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets to sit on and a picnic to enjoy before the show. There is a requested donation of $5 per person, $4 for Bluemont Friends and seniors, and $2 for kids twelve and under. Proceeds go to support Bluemont's year-round Artist-In-Education program in area schools. All Leesburg concerts begin at 7:00 pm. As at all Bluemont concerts, no pets, alcohol or smoking are allowed. In bad weather, the concerts will be held indoors at the Leesburg United Methodist Church Asbury Hall, located at 107 West Market Street.

West Market Street, from King Street to Church Street, will close at 5pm prior to each concert and will remain closed until the concert concludes.
