Started in 2015 these free concerts are a celebration of our local artists. Organized and sponsored by the church, the concerts are a reason to gather our community together, encourage local artists and share experiences. They provide a forum to share the musical heritage of Tilghman Island with a wider audience, as well as the new musical forces in our community. Most importantly we hope that by having neighbors share their art, people will be inspired to the possibilities of creating art themselves.
The concert schedules are published in the local news and community newsletter and promoted through posters and signs.
All concerts at TUMC. Saturdays, 6:00 - 7:00 PM. Nearby and free. Arrive early to get a seat!
Concerts are sponsored by the Tilghman United Methodist Church and partially sponsored by the Talbot County Arts Council with funds provided by the Talbot County Council and the Towns of Easton, Oxford, and St. Michael.
