Several Connellsville area musicians will be participating in upcoming concerts being held at Storey Square in Uniontown, including well-known jazz trombonist Harold Betters and a newer local band, The Sammy Brooks Band.
The sound of music and the smell of delicious food will fill the air in downtown Uniontown this summer as the 2013 Storey Square Summer Concert Series begins.
Uniontown City Council members are encouraging city and county residents to take advantage of the popular series that is celebrated in the city every summer.
“This is a great night out for residents,” said Uniontown City Councilman Philip Michael. “It's free entertainment in the city every Monday.”
The entertainment and food will be offered from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Mondays. A farmers market will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. during the concerts.
The series will kick off on Monday, when the VFW Post 8543 Band will play. Food provided by Hot Diggity Dogs can be purchased. Fayette County Community Action Agency's Food Bank will sponsor the event and nonperishable food donations will be accepted.
