On the really local homefront for Saturday - Listen Live Music is presenting ANGEL BAND in concert at the Upper Milford Municipal Center in Zionsville at 8pm on Saturday night, 5/28. If you are a fan of bluegrass, acoustic folk, great harmonies and artists like Mary Chapin Carpenter, you will love this trio! Chasing June opens. We'd love to see the community come out to see this show - we can't do this without you! Tickets are $20 and will be available at the door, but you can purchase in advance at www.listenlivemusic.org. We are a 501(c)(3), 100% volunteer organization working to bring great music to our little corner of the Lehigh Valley...hope to see you there!
