Sunday Concerts in the Park return to Tottenham

July 30, 2020   ·   0 Comments

The melodic tunes of everything from country and classic rock to pop music will be once again drifting across Tottenham as the Sunday Music in the Park series gets underway at Keogh Park.

The Concerts are getting a late start this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The series was cancelled when organizers realized that restrictions made it impossible to have public gatherings during the normal start in early July.  

However, with some restrictions lifted, it was decided to give it another try.

Organizer Nick Dougherty announced the concerts would start on Sunday, July 26.

“I’m really pleased to let you know that the Tottenham Sunday Music in the Park concert series is getting ready to start our 10th anniversary season, Sundays [from] 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Keogh Park bandshell. We are working with Town Parks, Rec & Arts staff as well as Mayor Milne and Councillor Lacey to bring live music back to the community in a responsible and safe manner.

“As mandated by the Stage 3 COVID-19 safety protocol, we need to source; lots of disinfectant wipes and sanitizer, yellow tape to cordon off the area, a supplier of plexiglass and, most importantly, volunteers to help manage the Park.”

The concert attendance will be limited to 100 people. However, given the size of the area in front of the bandshell, that number should easily allow for social distancing protocols.

Due to the late start, the series will run a little longer this year and wrap up at the end of September.

This is a great opportunity to enjoy some local bands as well as guest performers from other areas who enjoy playing their music in Tottenham.

The list of performers includes:

July 26 – Sean Bourke Band
August 2 – Eclectic Revival
August 9 – DazeGoneBy
August 16 – That 80s Thing
August 23 – Tattoos’N Whiskey
August 30 – Bernadette Connors
September 6 – The Villagears
September 13 – Switchbacks
September 20 – Churchville Park
