Have you spent time in the courtyard of the Museum of Fine Arts? It’s a beautiful green space, and one that we enjoy in the warmer months. I have fond memories of attending summertime concerts at the MFA as a child — always with lots of dancing!
This summer, the MFA has a great lineup for the Elaine and Jerome Rosenfeld Concerts in the Courtyard series, including:
July 3 – ÌFÉ — a synthesis of electric sound and Afro-Caribbean language. Sounds so cool!
July 10 – Amythyst Kiah — a blues singer/songwriter from Tennessee who is supposed to have an incredible stage presence.
July 17 – The Garifuna Collective — a group that brings together deep cultural roots of Garifuna music, using an array of instruments from turtle shells, jawbones, guitars, and bass.
July 31 – Patty Larkin — an annual performer at the MFA, Patty redefines folk-urban pop music.
August 14 – Flor de Toloache — a New York City-based all-female ensemble that brings new life to traditional mariachi instruments.
August 31 – The Party Band — a punk funk brass band from Lowell, Massachusetts.
The series takes place on Wednesday evenings in July and August. In addition to live music, guests can enjoy snacks, drinks, and are encouraged to bring along goods for a picnic. Tickets and more information on the series can be found here.
