Unfortunately, the Tuesday Concert Series is yet again cancelled for this spring due to That-Which-Shall-Not-Be-Named. I hope it will be safe to start the weekly series again in September, 2022.

However, we will have ONE SHOW during the summer - our 10th Annual Bob Dylan Fest a benefit for the Lawrence Arts Center featuring a whole bunch of Lawrence's fine acoustic musicians in the big theater. I originally hoped he could have it in the spring, but the big theater was all booked up so it has been moved to summer. Check back for details.

Tuesday Concert is Number 5

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.

Mission Statement

About FREE Admission

Yes, admission is free. However... thanks to the generosity of our sponsors in covering expenses, 100% of the tip jar goes directly to the evening's artists. There has been a rennaisance in acoustic music in Lawrence over the 14 years of this series, and I'd like to think having this series where audience members listen intently without distractions has been a large part of the reason why. As you are able, a generous donation, purchase of a CD, or both, will encourage them to continue making excellent music.

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. In appreciation, we do two fund raiser events a year for the Lawrence Arts Center, Bob Dylan Fest in the spring and, starting 2021, John Prine Fest in the fall.

As always, my thanks to Clay and staff at Signs of Life , the staff at the Lawrence Arts Center, JJ and staff at Beautiful Music Violin Shop, Scott at Mandolin Cafe, and Jim and staff at Mass Street Music for SUPPORTING LOCAL MUSICIANS!
