The Old Part of Town | Sidewalk Serenades

Personal Concerts

SAT SEP 9 | 4PM | 5PM | 6PM | 7PM

Mining the rich musical landscape of folk, rock, and roll, country-western, and blues to find treasures not often heard while unearthing gems of their own, The Old Part Of Town is an acoustic group that brings together some veteran Baltimore musicians: singer-songwriters and longtime friends Matt Douglass and Sam Nitzberg, fiddler Brian Whaley, bassist David Freeman, and drummer Steve Raskin.

Seasoned players performing well-crafted and timeless material, showcasing tight vocal harmonies and tasteful musicianship, The Old Part of Town brings a wealth of musical knowledge and abilities to the stage, coupled with a natural, easy-going manner and a genuine, infectious camaraderie.


Sidewalk Serenades: 

Close (But Not Too Close) Personal Concerts ushers Spring into Baltimore with short (20-30 min) performances that come directly to you. Performers will come to the confirmed address, text the resident upon arrival and, like a burst of sunlight through these gray skies, share their talents from the sidewalk. The fee for each performance will be shared between the artist and Creative Alliance to help keep the arts thriving in Baltimore! Voted 'Best Concert Series' by Baltimore Magazine 2020 "The concerts are a way to keep the arts alive and artists employed in these uncertain times with a bootstraps approach that’s truly Baltimore."

The Basics: 
• Performers come to the front of your (or loved one's) home and perform for 20-30 minutes.
• Performances will occur in Baltimore City. Not in Baltimore City? Email to confirm your address is accessible through this program.
• Ticket sales end when all slots are booked OR at 8am day of the concerts.
• If there is poor weather, concerts will be rescheduled to the next nice day, if possible.

What if I want to purchase a concert for someone else???
• Just leave the name, address, and cell number of the person the concert is for in the COMMENTS section when you check out online.

What if I live in an apartment?
• Performers will not enter an apartment or shared home but can perform in front of the complex or on the side of a building. This works the best with musicians that project well (horns, trios, etc).
