Denison Live revealed the lineup for the summer music series ‘Music on Main’ at Ivanhoe Ale Tuesday afternoon. Denison Main Street Director Donna Dow the city felt it as important to move forward with Music on Main with all the uncertainty in the world.


“We decided it was best to keep things as normal as possible,” Dow said. “We will see you at Music on Main on the other side of all this activity. We assume by May 22 everything will be back to normal or as close as we can get to our new normal.”


Dow said the city is also adding something new this year called “Music Alley Happy Hour,” which she described as a Facebook Live pre-show.


“We want to remind people they can come downtown, drop their lawn chair off at Heritage Park, and walk to our restaurants for a meal before the concert, Dow said. “We will have face painting and games, interviews of the artists, and interesting tidbits about Downtown Denison.”


Dow said the concert series began in 2002 and has grow to become a popular regional draw.


“We do our best to provide great musicians and quality entertainment that any audience can enjoy,” Dow said. “
