Steel Rail Blues Come Through Belmar
The Belmar Arts Council welcomed some old friends tonight, Chris Turner and Steel Rail Blues. They had previously sold out the Boatworks a while back, so this time they were bringing their family friendly outlaw country music to a much bigger space- an outdoor concert in Pyanoe Plaza in downtown Belmar. The concert was free, sponsored by the Don Crocker Support Center for Non-Profit Management, with the help of Belmar's Tourism Commission and the Department of Public Works.
People started gathering before the show, and by the time the band started, there were dozens of people in the plaza, and more arriving all the time.
Unfortunately, a major thunderstorm also arrived, causing an early end to the entertainment. We hope to have this popular and busy band back to town in the near future. Meanwhile, we have more music scheduled as part of our ongoing Performance series at the Boatworks (where we have a very nice roof), details available on our main website.
Update- A make up show is now scheduled for August 18th.
