Thursday afternoons are now a great to time to be stuck at Pittsburgh International Airport.
Starting today, the airport brings backs its Thursday afternoon Performing Arts Series, which will feature local musicians and “artists of all genres,” for shows in the Baggage Claim and in other areas of the airport terminal.
The series began in 2016 with a grant from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and last year featured about 35 artists – pianists, harpists, guitarists, duos, trios, and soloists.
The performance schedule for 2017 is posted here, but the 2017 line-up looks like this so far:
3/30/2017 1-4 pm Dan Bubien
4/6/2017 1-4pm The New Mingle
4/13/2017 2-4pm JuliAnne Wright
4/20/2017 1-4pm The Squirrel Hillbillies
4/27/2017 1-4pm Dan Sty
