Lightning Creek plays courthouse lawn

Lightning Creek brings three-part harmonies, keyboard, fiddle and lap steel to the Douglas County Courthouse lawn in Alexandria on Thursday, July 13.

The group plays classic and new country music with a mix of upbeat rock and takes audience requests.

The concert starts at 7 p.m. and is the eighth in a series of weekly performances scheduled throughout the summer. Organized by The Red Willow Arts Coalition, the free concerts are sponsored by Anderson Funeral Home and Elden's Fresh Foods as well as nightly sponsors. Thursday's music is sponsored by Bursch Travel.

This is the seventh season for "Concerts on the Courthouse Lawn." Red Willow encourages concert-goers to bring lawn chairs or blankets. Proceeds from popcorn sales will support a new playground for Miltona Science Magnet School.
