The Convention and Visitors Bureau is partnering with the Granada Theatre on a free concert series starting Friday and continuing through the summer.
The "Friday Night Live" series should be a good way to highlight up-and-coming talent, according to theater director Bryan Williams.
CVB Director Susan Rathke says the concerts will fill a void in the summer entertainment schedule after Live in the Lot concerts weren't held last year.
The series begins with Chicago singer-songwriter Gary Hubbard and the Houmadors and wraps up Aug. 29 with the Kansas City blues band Knock Kneed Sally. Five shows are on the slate.
