The Dixie Diehards will open the six-part series on July 8, says resident Mim Gopen, who organizes the series at Beach and Pond streets with her husband, Joe.
Sharon resident Alan Shapiro is the Dixie Diehards' music director, and plays trumpet, according to the band's website.

- July 15: Mighty Silverbacks
- July 22: Jazz Echo
- July 29: Jumpin' Juba
- Aug. 4: Multi-Cultural Dance Fest
