Lowell Summer Music Series schedule set

As we head into the 4th of July weekend, we can tell you that the lineup for the Lowell Summer Music Series has been finalized for this summer at Boarding House Park.

Peter Aucella, general manager of Lowell Summer Music Series, told The Sun that the 2021 lineup will include 12 shows, as Jake Shimabukuro canceled and ticket holders were refunded.

Aucella said a few other deals fell through before LSMS organizers ran out of time to book and had to move on to marketing and logistics.
