The Malden Public Library’s “Live on the Lawn” Summer Concert Series returns on Wednesday, August 31, at 6:00 p.m. with the great music of The Highwaymen: Songs and Stories with Matt York. Longtime New England singer/songwriter Matt York will perform the songs of Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson and Waylon Jennings and tell stories of their careers. The four songwriting legends joined forces in the 1980’s to form the country supergroup The Highwaymen; however, prior to that, they’d each established themselves as stars, and their careers had intersected many times since the 1960’s. Matt York has twice been nominated as Best Male Artist by the New England Music Awards, and his latest release was named one of The Boston Globe’s best albums of 2019.
Bring your lawn chairs or blankets and experience a great night of outdoor live music at the Malden Public Library (36 Salem St.). This program is supported in part by a grant from the Malden Local Cultural Council, which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency. All concerts are free. In case of rain, concerts will be held inside. For more information, contact the Malden Public Library: 781-324-0218, www.maldenpubliclibrary.org.
