Old Lyme’s Midsummer Festival Kicks Off with Free Concert by ‘The Mighty Soul Drivers,’ Tonight

‘The Mighty Soul Drivers’ will entertain at the free Midsummer Festival kick-off concert at the Florence Griswold Museum on Friday evening.

OLD LYME — The traditional Friday night lawn concert, which has heralded the start of Old Lyme’s Midsummer Festival for many years, is happening again this year after a two-year COVID-enforced hiatus.

The concert takes place from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Florence Griswold Museum when The Mighty Soul Drivers will perform.

The event is free and all are welcome.

Bring your chair or blanket and enjoy the classic Soul sounds of Memphis, Muscle Shoals and points South. The band takes their inspiration from the giants of Southern Soul – O.V. Wright, Percy Sledge, Otis Redding and more, combined with contemporary tunes written in the classic style.

The Mighty Soul Drivers are famed for turning every venue they play into a Soul dance party!

A large crowd traditionally gathers to enjoy the Midsummer Festival kick-off concert on the grounds of the Florence Griswold Museum. File photo.

Pack a picnic or enjoy the onsite food truck fare.

Also, from 5 to 7 p.m., there will be free admission to the current exhibition at the Museum.

This concert is sponsored by All Pro Automotive and Benchmark Wealth Management.
