Cedar Fairmount plans free concerts and festival

Moises Borges

The Cedar Fairmount Special Improvement District (CFSID) is making summer plans.

On Thursday, June 21, it will host the first of two free family-friendly concerts, with Jen Maurer and Mo Mojo performing. The second concert, on Thursday, July 26, will feature the Moises Borges Trio. Each concert will start at 7 p.m., and be held on the Stephen’s Green patio at Nighttown.

Both Jen Maurer and Mo Mojo are know for their Zydeco music and blues and roots background. Expect rousing vocals, crazy and amazing fiddling, banjo plucking, guitar picking, and bass booming—and maybe some foot stomping and dancing in the aisles.

Moises Borges is a Brazilian-born, self-taught acoustic-electric guitarist and singer. He grew up experimenting with rhythms, which are basic to his performances. Dedicated to broadening the audience for Brazilian music, Borges has performed solo and with his band, throughout the Cleveland area, for the past 15 years. He has been nominated three times for the Brazilian International Press Awards USA as best Brazilian Instrumentalist living in the U.S.

Reservations are not taken for either concert, and seating is limited. For more information, contact CFSID at 216-791-3172.

Looking ahead to Aug. 12, the 17th Cedar Fairmount Summer Festival & Arts and Craft show is returning on its traditional second Sunday in August.

Save the date to enjoy this family-friendly festival that is made possible by the businesses, professionals, neighbors and vendors of the Cedar Fairmount Business District, matching the Cuyahoga Arts & Culture grant.

Artists and vendors interested in participating in the festival should visit www.cedarfairmount.org for information.
