PEMBROKE — The Peace in the Park concert series is back for its September edition.
This time, Charly Lowery, the lead singer of Dark Water Rising and founder of the concert series, will partner with The University of North Carolina at Pembroke’s Chancellor Kyle Carter to bring the university’s students and the community together.
“We will have a march from the university to Pembroke Town Park,” Lowery said.
Peace in the Park will begin Thursday and continue each Thursday throughout September at Pembroke Town Park. The music is from 7 to 9 p.m.
This Thursday the event will be a prelude to UNCP’s football team playing Winston-Salem State in a home game that will be nationally televised.
It is the second year for the concert series, which welcomes new artists weekly, with genres ranging from blues to rock. The performers for this month are Sol Roots, a soul and blues band that will perform Thursday; Echoes of Faith and Mt. Olive Praise Team, which will perform gospel music on Sept. 12; Pura Fe Trio, a native blues band that will perform on Sept. 19; and Dark Water Rising, Lowery’s rock group that will perform Sept. 26.
The concerts are free and open to the public.
