Red Sea Pedestrians Concert

Keep the beat of the Willard Rocks summer theme going by attending a Red Sea Pedestrians concert. The band, which is based in Kalamazoo, will be playing two 45-minute sets with a 15-minute break in between. The Red Sea Pedestrians consider themselves "a warped and beautiful blend of American Roots, Rock, Klezmer, Gypsy, Classical and Jazz music all filtered through the band's original vision." In the past decade of performing, the six-member band has developed a loyal following.

Cold nonalcoholic beverages and light snacks will be provided.

Willard Library programs are free and open to the public.
