City of Kentwood Announces 2022 Winter Concert Series Lineup
The City of Kentwood’s Winter Concert Series will return with free concerts on select Thursdays through March at the Kent District Library – Kentwood (Richard L. Root) Branch, 4950 Breton Ave. SE.
The series will feature three West Michigan performers who will play a mix of genres. Each concert will also have a food truck outside offering a range of cuisines for purchase.
“With a variety of talented local musicians and food truck favorites, winter concerts offer residents an enjoyable night out during the colder months,” said Val Romeo, Kentwood Parks and Recreation director. “We welcome all to enjoy the good food and live music in the warm comfort of the library this winter.”
The lineup of performers and food trucks is as follows:
- Thursday, Feb. 17 – Singer and songwriter Lexi Adams with food from Patty Matters Food Truck.
- Thursday, March 17 – Cellist and vocalist Jordan Hamilton with food from Around Baking Company.
- Thursday, March 31 – Singer and multi-instrumentalist Nicholas James Thomasma with food from El Jalapeño.
Adams will present a mix of original music and covers. Her songs are stories of life experience carefully crafted through each melody and lyric.
Hamilton will merge musical styles to tell stories of the human experience through a variety of genres. A member of Last Gasp Collective and the Southwest Michigan Symphony Orchestra, he can be found performing primarily in the Midwest, where he has opened for national acts.
Thomasma will perform a mix of Americana, folk, country and rock music. He combines stories and songs with humor and wit for a show that can be enjoyed by all ages.
The concerts will take place in the library’s Community Room from 6:30-8 p.m. Guests are welcomed to bring their own beer, wine or nonalcoholic beverages to enjoy at the show. More information is available at: kentwood.us/WinterConcerts.
