Dwayne Haggins

Wednesday, August 14, 2019

This week's musical treat brings Dwayne Haggins and his incredibly talented Band to the Upper Common. Dwayne has been described as “the love child of Hank Williams and Otis Redding.” “The John Legend of rockabilly.” And even, “the ‘what-took-you-so-long?’ fusion of Elvis Presley and Marvin Gaye.” Adding new subtleties to an obvious melody line and reinterpreting a time-worn lyrical cliché to imbue it anew with genuine feeling, Dwayne promises to swoon and swing music lovers near and far to the rhythm of his unique talent. Grab a picnic or a frosty beverage over at Fitchburg's favorite, The Boulder, and enjoy this fantastic, free community concert! We'll be bringin the hot dogs, popcorn and snacks this year, and food trucks will offer a variety of different food.

Concerts on the Common is a free community concerts series that takes place on the Upper Common.  The 2019 season opens on July 11th from 6:30p-8:30p and returns every Wednesday until our finale on August 28th.  This series is a long standing Fitchburg tradition and is known for its musical excellence and community building power.
