Now in its eleventh season, the free, annual Live on the Green festival series continued Thursday at Public Square Park, despite some dreary weather at the onset. It was a largely local leaning bill with Nashville gone LA duo Johnnyswim, popster Mat Kearney, all-around badass Amanda Shires, and singer-songwriter Will Hoge. Continuing the format adopted last year, these four set bills are running for the first three Thursdays, ending with an epic four-day affair, extending across two stages through the final Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday over Labor Day weekend. We have performers like Grace Potter, St. Paul & The Broken Bones, Lake Street Dive, Robert Randolph, Steve Earle, and O.A.R. to look forward to, but, before we preview the exciting finale ahead, take a look at our recap and photos from week two below!
