Details of the first two concerts are as follows:

July 16: Kim Petrarca
Rhode Island singer-songwriter Kim Petrarca started playing guitar at age eighteen. Soon after that, she teamed up with The Grey Sanford Band, performing original music around New England. She has featured as an artist in the Songbirds of New England and the Divas of the Season series as well as in the lineup of the RIMHOF Unity Concerts. Kim was a finalist in Rhode Show’s Big Break contest. Kim’s lyrically driven acoustic folk-rock has wide appeal and her influences include Bob Dylan, Carole King, Josh Rouse and Tristan Prettyman. Kim performs monthly gigs at Remington House, Powers Pub & Indigo. She’s just released her solo EP, Leave It Where It Lies.
