2ND ANNUAL GREENSBURG MUSIC FEST RETURNS TO DOWNTOWN GREENSBURG

Greensburg, PA (August 27, 2019) – Westmoreland Cultural Trust’s fourteen-week TGIS concert series, best known for promoting local bands every Thursday evening in the S&T Bank Courtyard at The Palace Theatre, rounds out its free admission season with an end-of-summer music festival.  Greensburg Music Fest will feature seven stages and over 35 local bands on Friday, September 13, with music for every type of listener.

Westmoreland Cultural Trust’s TGIS concert series paved the way as one of the first to begin supporting local bands outdoors in their courtyard.  To finish off this year’s season, the trust has invited local musicians, artists, vendors, restaurants and bars to come together to make the 2nd Annual Greensburg Music Fest even bigger and better than last year.

“We were thrilled to have so much community support for the inaugural Music Fest.  This afforded us the ability to really grow the event this year.  There truly is something for everyone,” stated Kelli Brisbane, director of corporate engagement & events.

Greensburg Music Fest will span across various locations throughout the downtown Greensburg area. The hours will vary; the first event begins at 5 PM. Maps will be available for attendees, in addition to information and updates on the trust’s website at www.westmorelandculturaltrust.org.

Westmoreland Cultural Trust will present A Night With Adele, starring Amy Jo Slater on The Palace Theatre stage.  Amy Jo is originally from Jeannette, Pa and graduated from St. Vincent College.  Opening the show will be East Coast Turnaround, also from Jeannette. Tickets are $10, $15 and $20. The show begins at 6:30 PM. Proceeds will support Music Fest. Food will be available for purchase from Caffe Barista. Tickets can be purchased online at www.westmorelandculturaltrust.org or by calling 724-836-8000.

The trust will also present five local bands on their Art in the Alley Loading Dock Stage from 5-10 PM.  All Stewed Up, The Laurel, Same Moon, The Whelming Waters and Aubrey Burchell are all part of the line-up.  Food will be available from Elegant Catering and Speels on Wheels food trucks in the adjacent Helman-Ghrist Lot.   Beverage choices will include local brews from Four Seasons Brewing Company, Sobel’s Obscure Brewery, Whitehorse Brewing Company, and Quinn Brewing Company in the Draft Streets Beer Wagon and Pabst Blue Ribbon and Miller Light from Beverage Warehouse.
