Music in the Square Concert series in June 2020

The Lillie M. Evans Library District will be hosting our third annual free concert series in Princeville’s Stevens Square on the last three Fridays in June. The concerts will start at 7pm. Due to COVID-10 concerns, there will be no food or drink available at the Square this year. Please bring your own lawn chairs for your seating comfort or feel free to stay in your vehicle.

Music in the Square will feature the New Cats on June 12th. They fuse a mixture of high energy and uptempo new and traditional bluegrass & folk music, along with a handful of their own finely crafted tunes. The band members encompass a wide mixture of music backgrounds from jazz to punk and each bring their own unique flavor to the bluegrass genre.

On June 19th, we will be hosting P.S. Jazz. P.S. Jazz performs adult contemporary and jazz music for a variety of venues and settings. This Peoria area group provides a pleasurable listening experience that's easy on the ears and just right for whatever mood. Understated, smooth and sophisticated, they are perfect for settings where people enjoy good music, but also want to enjoy each other’s good company and conversation.

On June 26th, the Aristocrats will be entertaining us. The Aristocrats is a eight piece band playing all of the "Big Band" favorites of yesterday and today. The Band has a repertoire of arrangements made famous by the big bands of the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s and is supplemented with contemporary jazz and popular tunes.

Steven’s Square is located on the corner of West Evans Street and IL-91 in Princeville. In case of inclement weather, the concert will be cancelled. More information about this and other library programs can be found on the Lillie M. Evans Library website at
