In lieu of the 4th of July festivities that will no doubt shiver through the city and the surrounding areas of Missouri and Kansas, there will be no Streetcar Summer Sounds Music Series event on the streetcar this Thursday. Though I’m sure this news brings a feeling of utter despair onto you, I urge you not to fret. Next week, the Streetcar Summer Sounds will surge back with tenacity; with The Newkirks.

The Newkirks are a husband-and-wife, singer-songwriter duo performing original contemporary-country songs. Genuine lyrics, evocative sounds, and narrative emphasis are features of The Newkirks artistic language. Their down-to-earth, self-aware music connects to individuals with its humanity and depiction of real life.

Streetcar Art Stroll Two: Public Art & Galleries

Moreover, the next Streetcar Art Crawl is next week, on Saturday, July 13. With the success of the first Art Crawl earlier this summer, we are excited about this next tour. For the second edition, we will be focusing on all the amazing performances that have happened or will be happening. Of course, refreshments will be provided at the end of the tour at Our Daily Nada with an included performance (more details to come).

This event highlights not only the streetcar’s support of the arts but allows the public to interact and engage with the artists and artworks/performances that Art in the Loop has been percolating into Kansas City’s downtown area.
