Summer Concerts on the Square
presented by Connecticut Water

The Mansfield Downtown Partnership and the Town of Mansfield will host the 2016 Summer Concerts on the Square, presented by Connecticut Water, a series of free concerts every Thursday in June and July on the Mansfield Town Square. All performances will take place from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM. The rain date for each show is the following Tuesday. All of the concerts are free and open to the public.

On Thursday, July 28, Wise Old Moon closes out the 2016 Summer Concerts on the Square. Wise Old Moon is an altAmericana and roots/rock band hailing from Hartford, CT that ties traditional folk influences together with a unique brand of high energy, twang infused indie rock, creating an eclectic sound that touches on many eras and genres.

Since their 2014 debut, Wise Old Moon has been touring heavily around the Northeast. On the band’s 2015 sophomore release Don’t Take Off, Millican recruited electric guitar and lap steel player Dan Liparini and began exploring a more electrified, high energy sound which Wise Old Moon’s recent live shows have become known for. Together Liparini and Millican lead a live band that has shared the stage with international touring acts including The Dustbowl Revival, Charlie Parr, Parsonsfield, Woody Pines, and Jonathan Edwards.

Wise Old Moon has been nominated for 5 CT Music Awards including the categories of Best Traditional/Folk and Best Americana, and is currently nominated for Roots Act of the Year by the New England Music Awards.

Mansfield residents and friends will enjoy a diverse line-up of musical entertainment for all ages. Visitors are welcome to bring a blanket or a lawn chair and enjoy music by talented musicians from Connecticut and New England.

The Summer Concerts on the Square are made possible with the generous support of Connecticut Water, UConn First Summer, Main Street Homes at Storrs Center, The Oaks on the Square, and Storrs Center Retail.
