Other performers during the event include Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Noe Socha, Della Mae, Jake Shimabukuro, Red Baraat, and Session Americana.
Activities at the Summer Arts Festival
And because last year’s event was a huge success, the Summer Arts Festival brings more activities for the people. Aside from the fun and entertaining live music performances, there will be a Newbury Street gallery tour and art auction. This is perfect for those who love art. Authors and artists from Boston and nearby places will also come and give talks. There will be a series of ticketed performances as well.
According to Chris Mayer, the publisher of Boston Globe, the arts this 2013 will definitely come alive like never before in Boston. The month of July will provide awesome opportunities for both the residents and visitors of the city.
And in addition to the free events and the talks, the weekend will also feature the Boston Summer Arts Weekend After Dark, a series of ticketed events. These events bring together festival artists for intimate performances, providing unique collaborations between artists.
