Historic Dublin will resonate with music on Thursday nights.

Eric Leslie, president of the Historic Dublin Business Association, has worked with the city for permits that will place acoustic musicians around the historic district on Thursday nights, starting this week.

"For two years we've been bringing all types of different musicians to the area. The solo acoustics really sticks. The way that it sounds resonates through the entire district," Leslie said.

Live music had been popping up around Historic Dublin on Thursdays not just during the third Thursday Slainte events so Leslie decided to make it official.

"I've seen bands at La Chatelaine, Tucci's and Brazenhead, so I thought these restaurants would do this every single Thursday, maybe pull other restaurants into this, maybe even a coffee shop."

This week marks "the start of a season-long community-wide acoustics on Thursdays," Leslie said.

Music will be offered on patios at historic district restaurants including Dublin Village Tavern, J. Liu's and La Chatelaine.

"The commitment every Thursday is to have music on Bridge Street and down High Street. Specific locations will rotate," Leslie said, adding that someone always will be posted at the frog park next to Dublin Village Tavern.

Music will start around 6 p.m. and end around 9 to 10 p.m., Leslie said.

"It's not a big event, but a way to come down and relax and hear some beautiful harmonies all around the district," he said.

Along with music around Historic Dublin, Leslie said consistency will be a focus of Thursday evenings.

"We want to stay consistent. Tucci's has the same two-piece (group) every Thursday," he said, adding that a performance by Jason Quicksall in the frog park at Slainte Thursday was very successful. "We'll have him perform every Thursday in that area. When we do find a good (performer) we'll lock it in."

The goal won't be to provide numerous musical acts, but a nice environment.

"We're not the Newport," Leslie said. "We're complimenting the overall ambience of the area. ... You can sit in the middle of the district and explore the music, the district and also the businesses."
