The Dublin Arts Council's Sundays at Scioto summer concert series will make its return June 7 in Scioto Park, 7377 Riverside Drive.

The series, in its 32nd year, offers up free concerts by acts from throughout the country, and this year one international group, every Sunday in June and July from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

"There are a lot of new bands this year," said David Guion, Dublin Arts Council executive director.

"I have a list of bands since 2001 and I think most of these are brand new bands for the series."

The series will kick off June 7 with jazz, Dixieland and ragtime music from Atlanta group Blair Crimmins & the Hookers.

Columbus alternative country band Lydia Loveless will play June 14, followed by another Columbus group, The Floorwalkers, on June 21.

Columbus swing band, In Full Swing, will perform June 28.

In July 5 Columbus R&B group LDNL will play, with Columbus country band Jacked Up set to perform July 12.

The series will host New York jazz group Rad Trads on July 19 and Socks in the Frying Pan will bring a bit of Ireland to Dublin to end the series July 26.

"We're really trying to keep it fresh this year," Guion said.

"We've gotten great feedback that people want to hear different music.

"We're trying to incorporate as many different types of music as we can."

For Guion, Blair Crimmins & the Hookers and Socks in the Frying Pan are the most anticipated.

After watching Blair Crimmins & the Hookers on YouTube, Guion said the group will bring great energy to Scioto Park.

"He's got a great horn section," he said.

Socks in the Frying Pan will be the first international act at Sundays at Scioto and it will lead into the Dublin Irish Festival, Guion said.

"It's sponsored with a grant through the Dublin Convention and Visitors Bureau with the whole idea of ushering in the Irish festival," he said.

"It will be the next weekend and a celebration of what's to come."

In Full Swing will return in 2015 after being rained out last summer.

Guion said Swing Columbus will also return to teach swing dancing lessons before the show.

"We missed it last year," Guion said. "It was so upsetting because everyone was so excited to learn about swing."

Details on the swing dancing lessons will be available closer to the concert date, Guion said.

The Cheesy Truck and Menchie's Frozen Yogurt will also be at the summer concert series offering up dinner and dessert.

A portion of proceeds will benefit the concert series.

The free concert series can be canceled if weather conditions are unfavorable.

Any cancelations will be reported on the DAC voicemail at 614-889-7444, online at , on Twitter @DublinArts or on the DAC Facebook page.
