We are part of The Trust Project.

EVANSVILLE — The creative musical trio, The Jolly Pops, bring their upbeat, original music and children’s standards in a concert for all ages at Evansville City Park on Friday, July 1 with concerts at 3:30 and 6:30 p.m.

This event is free and open to the public, and attendees should bring lawn chairs or blankets to sit on.

Billy Hartong founded The Jolly Pops in 2016 after touring the globe with his acoustic rock band, Breaking Laces. Since then, he has recorded and toured with many Happy Dads (and a few Merry Moms).

Bassist Justin Hartke and drummer Erik Schee join Hartong in their tour of Viking Library System from June 27-July 1. All three musicians have ties to the MacPhail Center for Music in Minneapolis.

In the event of rain, the Jolly Pops performances performance will be held at the Evansville Art Center, 111 Main St., in Evansville.

This program is sponsored by Evansville Art Center, Brandon-Evansville ECFE and Viking Library System, with funding from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage fund.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
