Summer Music at Ladew Gardens

Music at Ladew

catch of the day fish (2)It just doesn’t get any better than an evening spent stretched out on a picnic blanket taking in great music in the warm summer air. Well—actually, it does. When you place that exact scenario in the middle of the world-renowned Ladew Gardens, you’ve pretty much found a recipe for summer time bliss. We love Ladew Gardens’ summer concert series, Groovin’ in the Grass, every year, but this year’s line-up sparkles with even greater variety—everything from classic hits you’ll be singing along with to Latin beats that may just have you up and dancing in the grass. The concert series kicks off June 15th with The Crawdaddies. These perennial favorites kick off the season with their upbeat Cajun/Zydeco blend that makes for an absolutely perfect Father’s Day celebration. We’ll be first in line the following week for Pyscho Killers—a Talking Heads tribute band that promises to take us on a musical journey through the expansive catalog of one of the most unique bands in rock and roll history.

Once in a while Harford County Volunteer Firefighters get a frantic request from a resident whose cat is stuck up a tree or trapped in a gutter, and they’re happy to rescue the terrified pet, according to Lieutenant Volunteer Firefighter John Terrell, 30. But it’s a much rarer moment when a 9-1-1 call comes through like the one the Joppa-Magnolia Volunteer Fire Station received around 10 Tuesday night from a development in Edgewood: Help! Wild baby fox trapped at the bottom of a storm drain.

National Bank of Rising Sun in Street, Md.

Robbing a bank is always a losing proposition, right? John Dillinger, Bonnie and Clyde — it catches up to you, right? Well, last year a couple guys thought maybe they could pull one off in Harford County without getting caught, and so far they have.
