This year, after a knockout performance in her AotG debut last year, we are bringing back Mary Ann Redmond. We are also happy to welcome back powerhouse vocalist Michael Sheppard. Michael, after a few years’ absence, finally worked out a date that fits into his busy touring schedule this year.” “These artists have built a relationship with Leesburg and the audience,” Stilson continued. “On many Saturday nights, it’s an atmosphere of a family reunion since most of the artists have roots in Leesburg and Loudoun County. The performers always bring their A -game and in some instances, special guests join them onstage. As always, due to our sponsors, partners, and the Town of Leesburg’s commitment, Acoustic on the Green remains free to the public.” Concert dates and artists for the 2016 season are: June 11, 2016 Prescott Engle June 18, 2016 Ted Garber June 25, 2016 Don Chapman July 9, 2016 Todd Wright July 16, 2016 Michael Sheppard TOL PR 2016-03-15 Acoustic on the Green Page 2 July 23, 2016 Robbie Limon July 30, 2016 Cal Everett August 6, 2016 Gary Smallwood August 13, 2016 Jon Carroll August 20, 2016 Mary Ann Redmond August 27, 2016 Jennifer Daniels The free concerts begin at 7:00pm on the Leesburg Town Green (25 West Market Street) each Saturday night, starting on June 11, 2016, and running through August 27, 2016 (no concert on July 2nd).
