On June 8, the Marine Corps Heritage Foundation will welcome the U.S. Navy Band Country Current for the first performance of the free Summer Concert Series at the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Triangle. Country Current is nationally renowned for its versatility and “eye-popping” musicianship, performing a blend of modern country music and cutting-edge bluegrass.
Bluegrass music will return to the Museum when the U.S. Navy Band Bluegrass Ensemble performs on June 22. Performances continue throughout the summer with appearances from the U.S. Army Blues, Marine Corps Battle Detachment, U.S. Navy Concert Band and “The President’s Own” U.S. Marine Band.
The concerts begin at 7:00 p.m. Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or picnic blankets. The Museum, Medal of Honor Theater, Rifle Range and Museum Store will remain open for extended hours until the concerts begin. Tun Tavern will also hold extended hours from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. Outdoor concessions will be available during the performance. Admission and parking are free. No tickets are required.
