The music of Joan Zen will close out the summer season of free noon concerts in Hamilton. The Jean Matthews Tuesday at 12 performances on the Ravalli County Museum lawn will be back in the early days of summer next year. There were 11 free concerts in this season, all made possible by a host of great businesses, including our major sponsors - Bitterroot Drug, The Rapp Family Foundation, the Downtown Hamilton Business Improvement District and the Ravalli County Museum. Other major sponsors were Cardinal Properties, Massa Home Center, Spice of Life Restaurant and Art City. And then there's the almost 30 other businesses who helped support the series, along with our individual sponsors. Thanks from the Tuesday at 12 committee.

If you have suggestions for future shows in the series, contact Jenn Adams at Rooted Music on Marcus Street, east of the Main Street stoplight in Hamilton. Thanks to all who supported the series this year and to all who came to the lawn during the noon hours this summer. Another great venue for local talent will be the KLYQ Entertainment Stage on the main grounds of the Ravalli County Fair August 29 to September 1 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. each day.
