ALBION – The Village of Albion is extending its summer concert series by one more week with the performance shifting from by the canal to the amphitheater stage at Bullard Park.

The band Cold Fusion Arts will perform from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday at the amphitheater. The band includes Grayson Krol on basses, Mike Putnam on guitars and guitar synths, Paul Goodwin on kit and percussion, Kate Egling on vocals, and Doug Egling on saxes, flutes and wind synth.

Village officials wanted to have one more concert to cap off the summer series and try it at the amphitheater, where a new stage debuted last year. Food trucks are expected for the concert. Admission is free for the music.

Albion closed out the concert series by the canal last Thursday with a performance by the Who Dats. About a 100 attended the event. There canal spot hosted six concerts on Thursday evenings from July 14 to Aug. 18.

The amphitheater hosted the Rock the Park music festival on Aug. 6 with seven bands, including Nerds Gone Wild to cap the event.
