If it’s Friday and it’s summer, it must be time for Music on the Green at Freshfields Village.

The free concerts return for another tuneful season every Friday from 6  to 9 p.m. on the Village Green. The series is sponsored by the Town of Kiawah, Current Electric Vehicles, and Lightning Bugz.

Friday, June 11 – Congdon & Company - the five piece local group led by John Congdon - will returns to the summer line-up with a wide range of music from Rock & Roll, Blues, Country and Beach Music. A big favorite at the Village and a regular at Freshfields, they’ll please the whole family.

June 18 - One of the Carolinas’ best known party bands, Plane Jane will perform hits from the 60’s, swing, and dance-inducing electrified funk. Plane Jane gets a lot of attention for their signature style and six vocalists.

June 25 - American Idol fans will be thrilled when Quiana Parler & Friends performs on the green. Parler has performed on Saturday Night Live, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Good Morning America and more. A Charleston native and sought-after singer, she was an early AI contender.

July 9th -The David Archer Band will have you dancing until your feet hurt! They have a great female vocalist who brings the music of Aretha Franklin, Donna Summer, Stevie Nicks, and also more current artists to the group’s already extensive list of R&B, Motown, and other dance music. You will dance till you drop…… and then you’ll beg for more!

July 16th - Creator of Lowcountry Blues, a combination of post-modern blues and various musical flavors heard on the Carolina coast, songwriter and musician Gary Erwin and his band are creating original music that is earning them a reputation worldwide. Come enjoy this free family friendly event!  Don't forget you beach chairs and blankets.

July 23rd - Rum Punch Bandits hit the stage for the first time in November of 2000 as a Jimmy Buffett tribute band and have since expanded their songlist to include a variety of genres such as beach, classic rock, Tex-rock, gulf-n-western, trop-rock and jam-rock. This seven piece party band includes two electric guitars, acoustic guitar, bass guitar, keyboards/pedal steel, congas/bongos, and drums. The concert is free and we encourage our guests to bring chairs and blankets!

Freshfields Village is located at the crossroads of Kiawah and Seabrook Islands. Plan to come early and browse the quaint local shops and dine at the unique restaurants that Freshfields Village has to offer.
