July 14, 1996|By Rosalie Falter | Rosalie Falter,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

THE PATAPSCO Overlook Dixieland Band, a relative newcomer to the entertainment field in the Baltimore-Washington area but whose musicians have a combined total of more than 100 years of performing experience, is coming to Linthicum Park.

The group plays at 6 p.m. today in the second performance of the Concert in the Park series sponsored by the Woman's Club of Linthicum Heights.

The band is led by Rob White, tenor banjoist and lead vocalist. The group combines sing-alongs with instrumental numbers.

Next Sunday, the Heimat-Echo German Band brings a concert of oom-pah-pah music to the park.

Bring a lawn chair or a blanket and enjoy the music. But remember, concerts are canceled in the event of rain.

Linthicum Park is on Benton Avenue off Camp Meade Road. There is ample parking at Linthicum Elementary School beside the park.

The Woman's Club receives money to help support the concerts from the Cultural Arts Foundation of Anne Arundel County, the Linthicum-Shipley Improvement Association, Crestwood - Improvement Association, Performing Arts Association of Linthicum and the Lions Club.

For information, call Jo Barker at 859-3308 or Delores Schuman at 789-7546.
