August 6 5:30pm Concert in the Berkeley Springs State Park. The Nighthawks Blues & Roots Rock You can call their music blues, soul, roots music…or, as Sonny Boy Williamson said: “You can call it your Mama if you want to.” With a sound that spans all genres while still somehow sounding like a Chicago blues band is so many respects, the Nighthawks have remained one of the top-rated bands in the U.S. and beyond.

August 13 5:30pm Concert in the Berkeley Springs State Park. Blair Crimmins & the Hookers Jazz, Dixieland and Ragtime Blair Crimmins & The Hookers will make a jazzbo out of you. This ain’t your great-grandfather’s ragtime, and Blair Crimmins isn’t any quaint Dixieland revivalist. While honoring his influences, Blair adds his own swinging southern panache with dashing youthful vehemence: rapid-fire lyrics and an audacious hair-tossing delivery. The sound evokes the hot jazz, ragtime and blues of the 1020s. Sponsored by Morgans Art Council. 304-258-2300

August 20 5:30pm Concert in the Berkeley Springs State Park. Heather Maloney Indie Rock & Americana Heather Maloney’s music is riveting, her voice adventurous, her lyrics thought provoking. Her expansive range can handle Ella Fitzgerald-style jazz scat and adapt to Beatlesque pop or Joni Mitchell folk. Maloney’s influences are largely rooted in what she calls “adventurous folk.” A singer and songwriter, Maloney’s music is smart, catchy and soulful, based in the traditions of ‘50s folk music through those of mid-late ‘90s acoustic-based coffeehouse heroes and heroines. She uses juicy touches of pop and a little dash of rock ’n’ roll. Her songs are personal. Her passion is contagious. Heather has toured nationally as a headliner as well as in support of acts like Lake Street Dive, Shakey Graves, Gary Clark Jr., Colin Hay, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and many more. The New York Times called her music “utterly gorgeous, visceral” and SPIN Magazine described her as “stunning, breathy, and starkly memorable”. Sponsored by Morgans Art Council. 304-258-2300
