Looking for something cool to do during the dog days of summer?

Then visit the Valhalla Arts & Music Festival during its Hot August Night series the week of August 11 through 18. All events begin at 7:30 p.m.

— Thursday – Men of Worth

Maestros of the music, mirth and melancholy of their homelands, Irishman James Keigher and Scotsman Donnie Macdonald are the spellbinding Men of Worth. There’s nothing like the real thing in Celtic music, and Men of Worth are the real thing.

–Aug. 12 – The Lao Tizer Band

This award-winning jazz fusion band really knows how to lay a groove down. Lao Tizer played with The Rippingtons, Jethro Tull and The Doobie Brothers before snagging “Best New Artist of the Year” at the National Smooth Jazz Awards. A hot concert you don’t want to miss.
