Rhythm on the River returns to Grand Rapids June 23


GRAND RAPIDS — The Historical Society of Grand Rapids has announced the first program of the Rhythm on the River Arts Series.

Bliss will be performing on June 23 in the Wright Pavilion located on the towpath between the canal and the Maumee River at the end of Lincoln Street behind LaRoe’s Venue.

The Rhythm on the River programs are sponsored by the Grand Rapids Historical Society and are free to the public.

Members of Bliss are Lorilee Ash-Green, Cindy Drabik McFarland, M’Lissa Prottengeier and Brenda Holdridge. This quartet of women have “stepped outside the box” in the Northwest Ohio music scene. With their extraordinary blend of striking harmonies and their self-accompaniment of violin, two acoustic guitars, keyboard, and various light percussion instruments, they offer their audience an audible delight that is refreshingly unique. They have incorporated songs from all genres and transformed them into their own noteworthy styles.

Bring your lawn chairs or blankets. In case of rain, the program will be moved to the Old Fire Station, farther west on Front Street.
