HURRICANE — Following the cancellation of their June appearance at the Hurricane City Concert in the Park series due to rain, Azure Sweet has been rescheduled for Wednesday. The group will be playing an acoustic blend of Americana and folk covers and originals starting at 8 p.m. at Pioneer Park.
With a love of harmony and meaningful lyrics, singer-songwriters LaTressa Smith and Carolyn Murset show a great balance between fun and inspiration. Smith is on vocals, guitar and banjo, with Murset on vocals, mandolin, banjo, guitar and cajon. Rounding out Azure Sweet’s full sound are Melissa Kesterson on vocals, violin, ukulele and percussion and Kevin Till as the mortar of the group with his upright bass.
Weather permitting, Hurricane City Concert in the Park is held the last Thursday of the month through the summer at Pioneer Park on 200 N. Main St.
Concerts are free to the public. Bring folding chairs or blankets and enjoy wonderful evenings with the family.
In addition to the rescheduled Azure Sweet performance in July, Hurricane City Concert in the Park will also feature their regularly scheduled concert on July 28 featuring St. George resident Bill Cunningham. Cunningham was born in Belfast, Ireland, and sports an amazing resumé, including everything from film and television appearances and recordings to awards such as Mr. Universe, Mr. Ireland, Mr. Olympia, and Mr. America.
In his younger days, Cunningham worked in Hollywood as a stunt man and was a regular for Steve McQueen. He was a professional soccer player and referee and has been a singer, dancer and stand-up comedian. For this concert, Cunningham will be singing classic oldies, treasures made famous by the likes of Frank Sinatra and others of that time.
