"Hearing extraordinary outdoor performances under the Maine skies with diverse audiences and passersby is what makes Portland a unique arts destination and music mecca for indie musicians and local performing artists, "says Dinah Minot, Executive Director of Creative Portland, who spearheaded the Summer Stage series. "While the weather welcomes the community gathering, we are proud to offer the concerts for free to the public during First Friday Art Walk. We hope to continue the series in the Spring."
