Summer Concert Series on the Common

Sunday, August 6th, 2017

5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Slatersville Congregational Church 







Don Colt and the Boot Hill Band was formed in Lincoln, RI, especially to play outdoors at summer town concerts.  We appeal to that crowd of music fans who love classic country and southern rock from the 70's and 80's who want to enjoy a summer evening listening to good music.  You won't find a band quite like the Boot Hill band, with hard driving bass and drums, rocking lead guitar and distinctive but varied pedal steel sounds, all backing the unique lead vocals of Don Colt. 


Generously sponsored by:

Navigant Bank


**Bring blankets, lawn chairs, and join family and friends under the summer skies.  **The church kitchen will be serving great food and ice cream sundaes to top off the night.  **The North Smithfield Food Pantry will be holding a 50/50 raffle to benefit the pantry and get ready for winter needs.

Democrats are pushing Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to testify about the Cambridge Analytica scandal in Congress. Zuckerberg said yesterday said he would be happy to testify. Senators Ed Markey and Amy Klobuchar [[ KLO-buh-shar ]] tweeted that Zuckerberg needs to follow through on his pledge and testify under oath.        Police in Austin say bombing suspect Mark Conditt left behind a confession video, but it doesn't say why he did it. Conditt killed himself as police tried to apprehend him yesterday. Austin Police Chief Brian Manley says Conditt's video did not give any indication of a motive. He described the video as the outcry of a man talking about challenges in his life.        New England is getting hit with a major storm today. That comes as millions in the Northeast are digging themselves out of the nor'easter that dumped more than a foot of snow in some places. More than four-thousand flights were canceled yesterday and tens of thousands of customers were without power. Snow is continuing to fall from New Jersey to coastal southern New England.        The House Intelligence Committee is discussing a final report on the Russia investigation behind closed doors today. The majority Republican report will acknowledge Russian meddling but will say there is no evidence of collusion between Moscow and the Trump campaign. Committee Democrats accuse Republicans of leading a partisan investigation and call the adoption of the report premature.        President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden are sizing each other up. Biden said this week that if he had been in high school with Trump, he would take him out behind the gym and "beat the hell out of him" over his crude comments about women. Trump tweeted this morning that it would actually be Biden who "would go down fast and hard, crying all the way."        The NCAA Sweet 16 kicks off tonight. In the South Region, 11th-seeded Loyola-Chicago takes on seventh-seeded Nevada, followed by fifth-seeded Kentucky battling ninth-seeded Kansas State. Over in the West Region, third-seeded Michigan squares off with seventh-seeded Texas A&M at the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles. The nightcap features fourth-seeded Gonzaga against ninth-seeded Florida State.
