OK, that might not sound like much - unless you know this is from the

"Reasons We Love Kansas"

list in the Fall 2014 edition of Kansas! Magazine

Maybe I'll make t-shirts.

About FREE Admission
Yes, admission is free. However, there are certain expenses involved with putting on this series, not to mention the talents of the musicians that would go otherwise unrewarded, so if you are able we hope you will support this series with a donation to the tip jar, purchase a CD, or both.

About the Series

As Lawrence Old Guard Productions I created the Tuesday Concert Series in 2005 with the goal of providing a classy, low-pressure venue for local acoustic musicians. It was held at Signs of Life bookstore in downtown Lawrence until moving as a "guest production" to the Lawrence Arts Center in the fall of 2010. Mass Street Music began sponsoring the series soon afterwards by paying for the cost of photocopying fliers. As always, my thanks to Clay and staff at Signs of Life ; Susan, Ric and staff at the Lawrence Arts Center; and Jim and staff at Mass Street Music for SUPPORTING LOCAL MUSIC!

Mission Statement

“None of us succeeds alone, and there’s room enough for all of us out there. You don’t have to love each other’s music. But if you respect each other’s hard work and dedication to the craft, lend a hand and support one another... Come together and help one another succeed!” Anonymous
About the Host
Larry Carter is a four-time champion in the Kansas Fiddling & Picking Contest between 1989 and 2010. In addition to solo performances, he does original children's music/storytelling, contemporary folk with Cordelia Brown in Forest Green and spiritual chanting with Whole Earth Kirtan. As "Lawrence Old Guard Productions," he produces this series (including "Ukulele Fest" in fall and "Dylan Fest" in spring), the monthly Chanting by Lamplight series, and the annual Lawrence Bhakti Fest.
