Friday Night Live set for September 8

(Salina, KS 09-17) Salina Arts & Humanities, in collaboration with downtown stakeholders, announces the upcoming Friday Night Live concert event on September 8. 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. 

On Friday evening September 8, the Friday Night Live free concert features Jill Cohn. The show will take place in Campbell Plaza at 123 S. Santa Fe from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Singer/songwriter Cohn has been described by some as having melodious vocals with warm storytelling lyrics, complemented by guitar and percussion. Her songs pay homage to artists like Joni Mitchell, Sarah McLachlan and Counting Crows, with tunes ranging from personal reflections to musical contemplations of pertinent social issues including domestic violence and vanishing rain forests.

A full-time musician since 1999, Cohn has nine critically-acclaimed independent releases and has gained notoriety with some of her songs placed in popular TV shows. She was the debut performer for the Friday Night Live series on May 6, 2016.

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