Westchester Public Library’s Concert and Family Film series continues on Friday, June 28, at the bandstand in Thomas Centennial Park, in downtown Chesterton, with music by Lee Murdock, beginning at 7 p.m. The concert will be followed by the 1978 film, Grease at dusk, around 8 p.m.

Those who attend are invited to dress in character for a chance to win a classic reprint movie poster. Attendees are also welcome to bring lawn chairs, blankets, a picnic dinner and bug spray. In the event of rain, the concert and film will be held in the Baugher Center. This series is funded in part by the Chesterton-Porter Rotary Club. Library events are free and open to the public.

Lee Murdock, a renowned Midwestern musician, sings a vivid portrait of life on the Great Lakes. Noted as an accomplished instrumentalist on the six and twelve string guitars, Murdock combines ragtime, Irish, blues and folk styles with his flair for storytelling in songs. He has uncovered a boundless body of music of the Great Lakes, music which he says is made of hard work, hard living, ships that go down and ships that come in.

The movie Grease is rated PG and has a running time of 1 hour and 51 minutes.

The summer concert and film series will continue on Friday, July 12 in Thomas Centennial Park with the music of Pinhook Bogtrotters at 7 p.m., followed by the 1981 movie Raiders of the Lost Ark, which is rated PG. There will be no concert and film in the park on July 5 due to the holiday. The complete list of concerts and films can be obtained at any of the Westchester Public Library branches.
