Jul. 8—Over the Fourth of July weekend, live music returned to Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia for the first time since fall 2019, and it was music to everyone’s ears.
“It is very exciting,” said Ian Kennedy, executive director of the Downtown Columbia Arts and Culture Commission which owns Merriweather. “People are definitely ready to get back to concerts.”
The last live concert performance at Merriweather was in October 2019 and then the “whole world closed” because of the coronavirus pandemic according to Audrey Fix Schaefer, communications director for I.M.P., the independent concert promotion and production company behind Merriweather Post
