Sounds of Summer

Live Music on the Albemarle Sound

Summer Concert Series

Sounds of Summer is back and better than ever, offering a brand new concert series with four unforgettable events: the first set on Broad Street as we “boogie” the night away and the following three set against the stunning backdrop of Edenton’s picturesque waterfront.

Presented by Visit Edenton and Destination Downtown Edenton, the Sounds of Summer Concert Series is a celebration of live music and the Edenton community, bringing together visitors and locals alike for four sensational evenings of entertainment and family-friendly fun. Each concert promises a diverse lineup of talented musicians spanning various genres, from reggae to folk, ensuring a vibrant and dynamic experience for attendees.

This event is free and open to the public! Listen to the music from the harbor by boat, kayak, or set up a lawn chair or blanket on the waterfront. The Herringbone will event host a beer garden at the Trolley!
