BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Even with the Red Sox away in Tampa on Sunday, music and melodies echo down the chambers alongside Fenway Park Sunday.
Those sweet songs are from Lansdowne Street's "Country Crawl" that runs from the morning into the late evening. According to Loretta's Last Call, one of the participating bars, the music festival features five stages with 24 acts from performers. Festival goers can hop between bars to enjoy the multiple concerts at Loretta's, Bill's Bar, Game On! Fenway, the Lansdowne Pub, and the Bleacher Bar.
"Our ticket sales are awesome, we're expecting about 1,500 people on the street for the day, so people are ready to party and have a good time with country music all day long," said Loretta's General Manager Myles Kopka. Kopka was one of the organizers that helped put the neighborhood event together.
The festival has artists that are known locally or nationally, including performers like David Nail, Drew Baldridge, Chelsea, Craig Campbell, and the Swon Brothers to name a few.
"It's going to be an awesome day for country music, for Lansdowne Street, and for the City of Boston," Kopka said.
Event officials say that the festival will rage on until 11:30 p.m. Sunday night.
