Summer Music Returns to Downtown Saline


Kari Holmes and her band opened the Salty Summer Sounds Music Series Thursday.

The sounds of summer returned to downtown Saline Thursday night - and nobody seemed salty about it.

Saline Main Street's Salty Summer Sounds music series kicked off Thursday with a concert by Kari Holmes and her band.

Saline Main Street President Jill Durnen greeted t to the crowd at the outset of the free concert, telling people it was a nice return to normalcy.

The concert began with Holmes signing the national anthem as Main Street volunteer Jeff Dowling held the flag.

Holmes and her band then delighted the audience with a medley of country, pop and rock songs.

People were spotted eating ice cream on the street, drinking beverages and dining in the patios, and chatting with friends  - many of whom they hadn't seen in two years thanks to the pandemic restrictions.
