Dublin Arts Council announces 2009 lineup for
DUBLIN, Ohio— (May 26, 2009) Executive Director David Guion of Dublin Arts Council today announced the musical lineup for the 26th annual DAC Sundays at Scioto Concert Series. The popular outdoor concerts provide an array of Central Ohio and regional musicians onstage in the outdoor amphitheatre at scenic Scioto Park, 7377 Riverside Dr., in Dublin, just north of the DAC facility and south of Hard Rd. The free concerts take place Sunday evenings, June 7 through July 26, from 7 to 8:30 pm.
“Dublin Arts Council is so pleased to bring these free Sunday evening concerts to our community each summer,” says Guion. “It’s a wonderful opportunity to lounge on the grass overlooking the river, and enjoy a picnic with everything from Dixieland jazz to British pop.”
Jeni’s Ice Creams will be on hand each week, selling four flavors of ice cream and root beer floats with proceeds benefiting Dublin Arts Council.
According to Guion, the DAC Sundays at Scioto concert series entertainment includes:

The 26th anniversary event and the location are of historical significance to Dublin Arts Council. The Council was formed after an ad hoc committee brought the Columbus Symphony Orchestra to the dedication of Scioto Park in 1983. The park is also home to Leatherlips, the first public artwork of DAC’s Dublin Art in Public Places program. The 12-foot high native limestone sculpture of the Wyandot Indian Chief has overlooked the park’s amphitheatre since 1990.
The 26th annual DAC Sundays at Scioto summer concert series is provided as a free gift to the community through the support of our sponsors, Time Warner Cable, Sheehan Hutchison Keenan, your Grange Insurance agent, Cardinal Health, Jeni’s Ice Creams, Porter, Wright, Morris and Arthur, LLP, The CW on WWHO-TV, WCBE Radio and ThisWeek Newspapers.
