Warren Summer concerts and camp a go - for now

Recreation director said she is following state guidelines and planning for the best

Posted

Summer camp and the Summer Concert Series will go on as scheduled this summer, as long as they doesn’t conflict with Gov. Gina Raimondo’s Covid-19 guidelines, the Warren recreation director told the town council Tuesday evening.

Director Tara Thibaudeau said she is all set to go for both the summer camp, which runs from Monday, June 29 through August 14, as well as the concert series. As for the summer camp, Ms. Thibaudeau said she is following guidelines from the state which currently allow camps to run with restrictions. Those include separating campers into “pods” of 10, which will have little or no interaction with other pods, and other measures.

In addition, Ms. Thibaudeau said she has already scheduled the summer’s bands. Though Warren Town Council president Keri Cronin said she hopes the concerts can be held, she said she is skeptical:

“Right now, if I were to make a guess, that’s probably not likely,” she said. “As long as the acts that have been booked understand that they may or not be performing, that’s the best we can do.”

“I’ve let the performers know that,” Ms. Thibaudeau said.

The tentative schedule for the series at the Burr’s Hill bandshell includes: 

Sunday, July 12: D&D (acoustic rock)

Sunday, July 19: Timmy Brown and Charlie Marie (Nashville country)

Sunday, July 26: Jesse Liam (pop)

Sunday, August 2: Back in the Day (1980s tribute) and Out Of The Blue (rock)

Sunday, August 9: The Pogs (1990s tribute)

Sunday, August 16: October Road (James Taylor tribute)

Sunday, August 23: Patterson-Smith Trio (folk, jazz and blues)

Sunday, August 30: Atwater-Donnelly Trio (folk)

Sunday, Sept. 6: Marvin Perry Project (hip hop, rhythm and blues) and Off Kilter (rock)

All concerts run from 5 to 8 p.m.
