The Lewiston Council on the Arts brings back Lewiston's own 1960s rock musicians and friends for the seventh annual "Summer of '69" at 6 p.m. Friday, July 15, at the Hennepin Park gazebo, Fourth and Center streets, Lewiston.

Hear favorites from the 1960s, '70s and '80s performed by members of Lewiston's own groups such as the County Orphanage, the Invaders and the Lewiston All Stars.

Special guest and Grammy winner Gary Baker, former Invader County Orphanage bass player, will perform some of his No. 1 hit songs. Baker has worked with the Backstreet Boys, Alabama, Lone Star, All-4-One and has created such hits as "I Swear," "I'm Already There" and "Once Upon a Lifetime."

Ties to Lewiston are so strong that some musicians and audience members come from as far away as Idaho, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana and Virginia.

This event is free and open to the public, thanks to the sponsorship of Sevenson Environmental Services.
