 (Salina, KS 09-16) Salina Arts & Humanities, in collaboration with downtown stakeholders, announces the next Friday Night Live concert event on September 30th. Friday Night Live is a series of arts and entertainment programming for Salina residents and visitors designed to increase attendance and participation in arts-related events and to strengthen partnerships with local business owners in the downtown arts district.

Each week, Friday Night Live will feature music and/or poetry events in restaurants, bars, outdoor plazas and other venues. The FNL series is a combination of free-admission events sponsored by Friday Night Live plus cover-charge events presented by local businesses, promoted through Friday Night Live stakeholders.  
        This week, the Friday Night Live concert features Randy Baldwin and a group of local players including members of Salina-based group A.M.  
Baldwin does not classify his music into any one genre, but feels that his songs assume their own “life” as color is added by the musicians he surrounds himself with, playing styles including country, Southern rock, bluegrass and rock ‘n’ roll. His influences include everything from the Beatles to John Denver and Led Zeppelin to Barry Manilow. This performance will mark the final outdoor show for the fall-winter season of Friday Night Live.

The concert is free of charge and takes place at Campbell Plaza, 123 S. Santa Fe, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The concert is being held during an adjacent ticketed event, so please enter on the east side of Campbell Plaza for free admission. Check the Friday Night Live and Salina Arts and Humanities Facebook pages for possible same-day weather delays or postponements. 

Also occurring this Friday is a community-organized event called Feast on the Fe-- a celebration of local food, music, and film making. Admission to the Feast is by pre-purchased button only (event sold out as of 9/20/16) down the 100 block of South Santa Fe. There will be barricades, way-finding signs and volunteers to assist patrons in getting to the Friday Night Live concert on Campbell Plaza if they are not attending the Feast.

Stay tuned for upcoming announcements about the rest of Friday Night Live programming for the fall months. For more information, call Stacy Ash at Salina Arts & Humanities at 785-309-5770.
