Enjoy music under the summer sun this weekend at the Quay.
The Hyack Festival Association's Concerts on the Quay series is continuing this Saturday, Aug. 3.
The concert headliners are the blues duo of Hans Theessink and Terry Evans. A press release notes that the Dutch-born Theessink is a roots and blues institution in Europe, known for his rich baritone voice and guitar work. Evans, meanwhile, hails from Vicksburg, Mississippi, in the heart of Delta blues country, and is best known for his work as a backing vocalist with the legendary Ry Cooder.
With just their two voices and two guitars, they bring to life blues, gospel and soul. Their new release, Delta Time, is receiving widespread acclaim.
Also in the concert lineup is Tonye Aganaba, a sultry soul singer originally from the U.K. who'll be accompanied by her band.
Other performers in the evening include Ben Rogers, known as a storyteller through song, and the pianist-vocalist Alex Maher.
The concert starts at 5 p.m.
Evans and Theessink are expected to take the stage at about 8 p.m.
