Lindsay Straw, MARV at Medford Farmers Market
Thursday, August 22, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Folk singer, guitarist and Irish bouzouki player Lindsay Straw provides the musical entertainment at this week’s Medford Farmers Market, performing from 5 to 7 p.m. Straw, founder of the Celtic trad band The Ivy Leaf, performs traditional songs and tunes from the British Isles. She has drawn praise for her tender singing voice, extensive repertoire, and sensitive, agile accompaniment style.
Also at the market this week, stop by MARV, the Medford Arts Resource Vehicle, between 3:30 and 6 p.m. to take part in “Hearts Across Medford.” It’s a community weaving experience to create beautiful wall and fence hangings using strips of upcycled/recycled textiles that are hand-woven and/or knotted into a chicken wire “canvas.”
Bring your library card to the market as well, because the Medford Public Library will be on hand with traveling book bins. Stop by to borrow books, get information about the library’s new temporary location on Boston Avenue, or do a craft activity.
Finally, representatives of the West Medford Community Center also will have a table, with information about many upcoming programs and events including the annual Hoops and Hope Classic at Dugger Park on Sunday, August 25.
The market takes place at the Condon Band Shell Park from 3 to 7 p.m. every Thursday through October 17.
