Outdoor Concert featuring Julie Rhodes

The Chevalier Theatre Commission is pleased to present a FREE outdoor summer concert at the Condon Shell along the banks of the Mystic River featuring blues rocker Julie Rhodes and her band. Grab dinner at the Medford Farmer’s Market (located next to the Condon Shell) or bring your own dinner and a blanket or beach chair to enjoy some fantastic live music.

Here’s what folks are saying about Julie Rhodes:

“The frenetic energy stills for a minute in the cramped performance space as Rhodes, an unassuming young woman from Somerville MA, takes her place at the mic, and opens her mouth to release the ghosts of James, Joplin, Winehouse, Fitzgerald, and her own—a legacy in the making.”  – The Huffington Post

“On the cusp of a meteoric rise in the songwriter community, Julie Rhodes is a powerhouse vocalist with authentic soul, grounded both in the songwriting traditions of yesterday’s Americana and today’s very present social and political issues.”  – Howl Magazine

The economic history was based on the ship building trade in colonial times. Ship building was begun by Thatcher Magoun who used lumber harvested from the Fells and New Hampshire which arrived via the Middlesex Canal. After the ship building industry reached its decline printed cloth and carpets, linseed oil as well as rum and hats became the major products in Medford as did education with the founding of Tufts University in 1852. Because of its industrial prosperity Medford doubled its population every 20 years from 1870 to 1910.

To this day Medford is a well populated city in a very convenient location filled with many suburban neighborhoods. However it still retains a rich architectural heritage containing many historic sites which include monuments and houses-some of which date back the 17th century.
