Free Outdoor Concerts on Tuesday Nights — And Every Night

Free Outdoor Concerts on Tuesday Nights — And Every Night

August 19, 2018

This summer, open-air music is happening all over Martha’s Vineyard just about every night of the week and usually for free, according to Louisa Hufstader in an article in the Vineyard Gazette. Tuesdays are particularly action-packed, with four outdoor concerts at opposite ends of the Island, but there are outdoor concerts on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays, too.

Here’s a quick look at the Tuesday line-up; for more music events, visit  the Vineyard Gazette calendar.

Free Concerts on Tuesdays

Sit by the pool at the beautiful Lambert’s Cove Inn in West Tisbury and listen to music from Mike Benjamin from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. every Tuesday night  during their Poolside Concert Series & BBQ (no cover charge).

Starting Tuesdays at 5 p.m., the Aquinnah Public Library presents young performers on its deck in the MVYRadio Youth Music Series, a collaboration with Alex’s Place at the YMCA of Martha’s Vineyard. And at the other end of the Island, WMVY also co-sponsors the Porch Concert series at the Harbor View in Edgartown, which starts at 6 p.m. Tuesdays through August 14.

A mile across town, The Sounds Like Summer series, sponsored by the Friends of the Edgartown Library, presents favorite Island bands such as Sabrina & the Groovers (July 31) and Johnny Hoy & the Bluefish (August 14).

As the final notes of the library concerts fade into the evening breeze, the Dock Dance Band sets up on Memorial Wharf downtown. Now taking place Tuesdays from 8 to 10 p.m., Dock Dances have been an Edgartown tradition for close to half a century.
