Get ready for some good "modern country" music when Ross Mead and North Country play Aug. 21 at St. Johns Concert in the Park. Headquartered in central Michigan, the band consists of seasoned musicians with over a century of combined experience - Rock, soul and twang in equal measure. 

The band features vocalist and acoustic guitarist Ross Mead as a compelling and entertaining front man. The dual guitar attack of Michael Ford and Adam Forsyth bring intricate interplay and dynamics with twanging riffs and blistering solos. The rhythm section features Josh Jones Jr. on bass driving the band forward with a pulsing low end and Mike Roberts on drums bringing a polished and rock solid beat.

 The music begins at 7 p.m. in the William E. Tennant Performance Shell in the St. Johns City Park; no admission.

 Concert in the Park is sponsored by the Clinton County Arts Council and the City of St. Johns with support from the Michigan Council for the Arts and Cultural Affairs and the National Endowment for the Arts. Concerts are held each Wednesday evening; rain or shine. The St. Johns Lions and Lioness Club staff a concession stand offering light refreshments.
