Leonardtown, MD— The summer of music continues when the Leonardtown Summer Music Festival presents another exciting concert featuring The Flippin’ Eyelids and Doc Lohn On the Water’s Edge at the Leonardtown Wharf on Saturday, August 20, 2022 from 4 p.m. – 7 p.m. Come celebrate the end of summer (we’ll have bubbles, chalk, beach balls and hula hoops on hand for summertime fun!), and help us collect supplies for local students (this family-friendly concert is FREE and open to the public, but your donations to local schools are appreciated).                          

Doc Lohn kicks off the evening performing a variety of hits from rock and country to standards and blues from 4 p.m. – 5 p.m. Then The Flippin’ Eyelids take the stage to thrill the crowd with their high-energy take on popular classic rock, modern music, oldies and dance tunes from 5:20 p.m. – 7 p.m. In between the sets (starting at 5 p.m.), the Town of Leonardtown and major event sponsor Jimmy Hayden of RE/MAX 100 and Homes for Heroes will hold a special ceremony in honor of St. Mary’s County Teachers and school support staff.
