The long-running free summer concert series, the Jean Matthews Tuesday at 12 noon presentations, had another successful year.

The final 2017 performance of the 11-event series featured singer-songwriter John Schiever August 22.

Organizer Russ Lawrence thanked all the sponsors who donate funds to pay for the artists. The major donors this year were Bitterroot Drug, Rapp Family Foundation, Downtown Hamilton Business Improvement District, Art City, Massa Home Center and Spice of Life Restaurant. There were another 40 sponsors - many of them Hamilton businesses who have supported the free public shows every year.

Thanks also to the performers this year (in order of appearance):
The Absent Wilson Conspiracy, Andrea Harsell, the Who Dat Band, Jenn Adams, The Gravelly Mountain boys, The Acousticals, Caroline Keys, Big Sky Mudflaps, River City Players, Bitterroot Community Band and John Schiever.

Notice a musical group you would've like to have seen? Well, don't miss our series next summer, starting in June, 2018, at the front lawn of the Ravalli County Museum, (another major sponsor).
