  • Friday at dusk, people who come to Lakeside Park Band Shell will be able to hear Robin Macy with Ken White performing as part of the Summer Music Series.
    Macy is known to many as the savior of the Bartlett Arboretum in Belle Plaine, and to others as one of the original Dixie Chicks. Either way, she’s a talented Bluegrass performer and well worth experiencing, a news release said.
    Listeners should bring lawn chairs or blankets, and bug spray if needed. Popcorn and water are provided by McPherson Cinema IV and Culligan of McPherson. Rain location will be the McPherson Community Building.
    Sponsors of the Summer Music Series are Disability Supports/Clayworks, NCRA, Wal-Mart, Edward Jones, the office of Gary Hess, Peoples Bank, McPherson Cinema IV, Culligan of McPherson and a grant from the McPherson Convention and Visitors Bureau.
    Robin and guitar-slinger husband Kentucky White play roots music that harkens to an earlier time, influenced by their ongoing work at historic Bartlett Arboretum, the century-old bountiful patch of nature in Sumner County. For more than 30 years, Macy has traveled up and down highway Interstate 35 performing bluegrass music with various groups — some more famous than others. Their 2008 Songs from the Garden recording pays homage to their vintage instruments, other-era duets and lessons learned from loving and living on the land. Friday evening’s concert at McPherson’s Lakeside Park Band Shell will feature new music from their 2012 release, “Bluebird.”
