---- — LONDONDERRY — It’s a perfect way to spend a summer night.

The annual Concerts on the Common series of musical events continued last week with a performance by the Jandee Lee Porter Band.

Families bring their chairs and blankets and enjoy a night on the Common, all free of charge and open to everyone. If raindrops fall, concerts are moved indoors to either Matthew Thornton Elementary School or the high school cafeteria.

The next performance is scheduled for July 10 at 7 p.m. on the Common. Brian Templeton returns for his fourth appearance.

The annual summer schedule of concerts is in its 12th year and presented by the Londonderry Arts Council. This year’s lineup is diverse and feature popular local acts, high school musicians and more nationally-known performers.

Other concerts scheduled for 2013 are Jamie Lynn Hart Band on July 17; Bruce Marshall Group, July 24; Ken Yates and Brian Dune, July 31; and Manchuka on Aug. 7.
