NORWOOD – The Norwood Village Green Concert Series welcomes street music band Buskers, edgy bluesman Tas Cru, and local favorites the Norwood Brass Firemen to the band shell for performances over the next several days.
The Buskers will perform on Thursday, July 22 at 7 p.m.
The Buskers have been digging among the roots of pop music since they met at an open mic in a basement dive in New Hampshire in 1993. With more or less old school instruments they tap the street music tradition for which they are named, then go much further, with serious musicianship, a sense of humor, and energy to burn.
Tas Cru, along with a 5- to 8-piece band, will take the stage on Sunday, July 25 at 7 p.m.
Original songwriting from this edgy bluesman has earned Tas Cru the moniker, "the master of the triple entendre."
He performs in a variety of formats ranging from solo-acoustic to an 8 piece backing band that includes the talented singing trio-Stacked Deck. Cru has shared the stage with a growing list of well known blues artists that includes Buddy Guy, Shemekia Copeland, and Willie "Big Eyes" Smith.
The Brass Firemen (a.k.a. The Norwood Fire Department Band) will give their annual hometown concert on Thursday, July 29 at 7 p.m.
Enjoy some “street music”, some audience participation and a general good time with the Brass Firemen. The venerable ensemble needs no introduction to North Country audiences. The tradition continues.
Admission to Norwood Green concerts is free but audience members have a chance to contribute to “the bucket.”
