If you’ve been missing live music during the COVID-19 pandemic, there’s a unique opportunity coming up on Sunday, July 19th.
Like many drive-ins around the world, the Lindsay Drive-In has decided to host a live concert. Tribute band The Traveling Milburys will be headlining the show with special guests The Steelhorse Gypsies opening.
The Traveling Milburys faithfully recreates the look and sound of supergroup The Traveling Wilburys, which was comprised of Jeff Lynne, Bob Dylan, and the late Roy Orbison, Tom Petty, and George Harrison.
Each member of the Traveling Milburys omes from tribute bands dedicated to the individual artists, with John Cassano as Jeff Lynne, Roy Leblanc as Roy Orbison, Gerry Parsons as Tom Petty, Jerry Boyer as George Harrison, and Matt Greenberg as Bob Dylan. The band last performed in the Kawarthas at Market Hall Performing Arts Centre in Peterborough in November.
