"It is our tenth season and we are celebrating with family. The artists are returning favorites who have not only supported Acoustic on the Green, but have become part of the fabric of the series,” said concert series founder Stilson Greene.  “In some cases their concert is the only time people can see them in a venue such as the Town Green. Michael and Cal rarely do solo shows, Jon and Ted are road warriors and Jennifer's home base is in the South. So to see and hear them in such a intimate and friendly setting is rare indeed.”

"Jenn and Scott of Naked Blue, Luke, Don, Prescott and Gary will be debuting new work and some will even have their concert be a CD release event,” he continued. “We also welcome back Todd Wright to our stage. In the past year Todd has blown-up nationally and internationally.  His songs are featured on numerous TV shows and he co-wrote the six-time platinum hit “Love You Anyway” for Celine Dion. I am so happy that he, and all the artists, can squeeze a date for us into their busy schedules. I am also thankful that the Town of Leesburg continues to be a strong and committed partner in producing Acoustic on the Green, without their support the series could not exist".
