CEN­TRE­VILLE — Plans are un­der­way for the 35th an­nual Lions Club Mu­sic Fes­ti­val which has been held by the Cen­tre­ville Lions Club as a fundraiser, to be on Satur­day, June 11, at the Queen Anne’s County 4-H Park near Cen­tre­ville.

The fes­ti­val, a ma­jor fund-pro­ducer by the ser­vice club for its char­ity projects, is said to be the long­est con­tin­u­ing fes­ti­val of its type on the East­ern Shore.

The club, now into its 70th year of op­er­a­tion, hopes this year’s event will at­tract more fam­i­lies as the gate price has been re­duced and there will be seven mu­sic groups, in­clud­ing for the first time, a fam­ily from Ridgely known as Sil­hou­ette Song. The day’s at­trac­tions will be set up on two stages and will run from 1 to 9 p.m., an hour ear­lier than pre­vi­ous years. Doors to the park will open at noon and ad­mis­sion will be just $5, re­duced to at­tract more fam­ily mem­bers. Chil­dren un­der 10 are free.

Long­time gen­eral chair­man Lion Twaun Oakes has lined up the fol­low­ing in or­der of their ap­pear­ance: Sil­hou­ette Song, Go with the Flow, Au­tumn Haze, Jones Boys, Bird Dog and the Roads Kings, John VanDyke and Lee Priddy and Dell Foxx Com­pany.

Bird Dog, a fa­vorite of fans on the East­ern Shore, is the only group to have been on stage at the fes­ti­val ev­ery year it has been held.

It is be­ing planned to have mu­sic school stu­dents on the sec­ond stage.

Paul Reed Smith, the na­tion­ally known gui­tar firm on Kent Is­land, has do­nated a gui­tar ev­ery year to be raf­fled off by the Lions Club that will then be awarded at the end of the day.

Ven­dors wish­ing to set up at the park dur­ing the event may con­tact Lions Club Pres­i­dent Brent Car­roll at 410-758-2788.

Bird Dog and the Road Kings will per­form at the Bay Mu­sic Fes­ti­val at the 4-H Park in Cen­tre­ville.
