Local Musicians Ready To Celebrate The 1967 Summer Of Love

summer_of_love_concert_image.jpg

1967 is known as the Summer of Love for the changing social culture and music scene. On August 12, a concert celebrating 50 years since that summer will happen at The Madison Theater in Covington featuring bands Haymarket Riot, Balderdash, Lemon Pipers and other performers. 

Organizers and musicians Steve Helwig and G Parker preview the concert in a conversation with Brian O'Donnell.

Brian O’Donnell has been sharing his love of music on the radio since the early 1970’s. He is a true public radio renaissance man hosting classical music on 90.9 WGUC weekday mornings; contributing music and arts features for 91.7 WVXU’s Around Cincinnati program; and hosting Saturday Morning with Brian O’D on WNKU. Musicians, artists and community arts leaders regularly stop by to record interviews with Brian— from Jaime Laredo with the Linton Music Series, or J.R. Cassidy from the Northern Kentucky Symphony, to a curator of an exhibit at The Cincinnati Art Museum, or a soloist in town to perform with the CSO, his relaxed style puts everyone at ease and lets their story come through.
