Great Local Music – Without a Cover Charge!

The San Diego County Library’s popular Acoustic Showcase series begins its summer round of free concerts Sunday, June 3.

The series brings local musicians and talent to San Diego’s libraries, exposing them to new audiences.  Seven concerts are taking place throughout June at various County Library branches. 


The Acoustic Showcase schedule for June includes:

John Foltz, pop/folk/rock: June 3, 2 p.m., Fallbrook Library, 124 S Mission Rd

“Music crosses all barriers and brings people together, building community in the process,” said Library Director José Aponte. “People don’t need to live in metropolitan San Diego to experience quality, local music.  It’s right here at the library – and there’s no cover charge.”


Since the music series began in April 2010, more than 100 concerts have been held at 23 different libraries with over 5,000 customers in attendance.


The Acoustic Showcase series is sponsored by the Friends of the Library and the Housing Opportunities Collaborative.  For more information on these performers and to see a full list of dates and locations, visit
