Irish music with French twist in free concert

Doolin’ headlines the free Levitt AMP Sheboygan Music Series concert Thursday, Aug. 16, at 6 p.m. on the new City Green located at Seventh Street and New York Avenue. The outdoor event also includes family-friendly activities.

Although from France, Doolin’ brings a fresh approach to traditional Irish music incorporating French chanson, American roots music, and Paris hip-hop.

“A finer gift hasn’t come from France since the Statue of Liberty was delivered,” states Jack Baker of Irish American News.

The name Doolin’ is derived from a little village in Ireland known for its music. The six members of Doolin’ perform jigs, ballads, traditional tunes, and their own compositions — serving up Irish music with a French twist.

Opening the show will be a theatrical performance of “A Soup Opera” by author Jim Gill and the Sheboygan Symphony Orchestra (celebrating its 100th anniversary, making it the oldest, continually active orchestra in Wisconsin).

The story is about a man, a bowl of soup and the man’s operatic and comically frustrating quest to eat it.

Stop by the community engagement tent to explore a free workshop powered by Maker Break and interact with Michael Velliquette's Lovey Town miniature exhibition.

Freedom Cry will also be on hand to share information about the Hope’s Heart project.

Information about this and other concerts in the series is available at Sheboygan or at the Arts Center (608 New York Ave.).

Concertgoers are encouraged to bring blankets or chairs as seating is not provided.

Food trucks and a cash bar will be on site. No alcoholic carry-ins allowed.

The Levitt AMP Sheboygan Music Series is supported in part by the Mortimer & Mimi Levitt Foundation, a private foundation that empowers towns and cities across America to transform underused public spaces into thriving destinations through the power of free, live music.
