The annual Shippen Manor Lawn Concert Series kicks off Sunday, June 16, 2019, with The Lost Ramblers before continuing for the next 11 Sundays with free shows that run the gamut from Country to Celtic to Classic Rock to Dark Cabaret.
Presented by the Warren County Cultural & Heritage Division of Land Preservation, the June and July concerts are 6-8 p.m. while the August and September concerts are 5-7 p.m.
All are held on the lawn in front of Warren County’s Shippen Manor Museum, just one block west of the traffic light on Route 31 at 8 Belvidere Ave., Oxford.
Bring your lawn chairs, blankets, alcohol and smoke free coolers, and picnic baskets to enjoy these free concerts.
The Lost Ramblers have performed regionally and nationally for over 30 years, playing authentic Appalachian acoustic music that runs the gamut from bluegrass and gospel, to swing, Irish and old-timey music. The Ramblers are also founders of the Pocono Bluegrass and Folk Society that presents regular stage shows and jam sessions at the Elks Lodge in East Stroudsburg.
