NORTH LIBERTY— The City of North Liberty hosted its second free concert in the park for the summer Saturday, July 17 at Centennial Park. The event, one of over 30 on the City’s “Summer Slate,” brought Coralville-based Tanya English and her Tanya English Band to the stage with a mix of classic and contemporary blues “from the woman’s point of view.” Following English was Chicago native Brian Johannesen with Midwest-rooted “Americana” sound inspired by John Prine, Guy Clark, and Bruce Springsteen.

The city worked with The Englert Theatre in Iowa City to line up talent, and partnerships with Veridian Credit Union, South Slope Cooperative Communications, Shive Hattery, Hills Bank, Green State Credit Union, and the Eastern Iowa Airport enabled the events to be free to the public.
