The Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum, in partnership with Country Heritage Winery, Mad Anthony’s Brewing Company, and the DeKalb County Visitors Bureau, will be presenting the first in a series of free outdoor concerts this week on Thursday, May 27. Fort Wayne’s very own Addison Agen will be coming to the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum Plaza from 5:30 – 8:30 PM.
Addison is an Americana singer-songwriter best known as Season 13’s first runner up on NBC’s The Voice. Based out of Fort Wayne, Indiana, the 19-year-old’s raw and heart-wrenching voice welcomes listeners of all kinds to be grateful and self-reflective. Addison’s honest storytelling and simplicity earned her an opening slot with Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band, as well as Kevin Bacon’s, The Bacon Brothers in 2019. Addison’s music transforms lived experiences into songs woven together with themes of nostalgia, acceptance, hopefulness, and joy.
The monthly concerts will be held on the fourth Thursday of each month from May through September from 5:30 – 8:30 PM on the campus of the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum with music starting at 6:00 PM. Local craft beer and wine will be available for purchase from our sponsors, and food will be available from Shigs in Pit.
“We have been looking forward to bringing outdoor events back to Northeast Indiana for over a year now. We believe that the Classic Car Concert Series will provide a safe and enjoyable environment for the public to get back out and enjoy the summer weather in the community,” said Walter Fisher, Marketing Manager for the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum.
The Classic Car Concert Series was conceived to provide the public with a free event featuring some of the best drinks, food, and local music available in the area. The music line-up for the series includes Addison Agen on May 27, Night to Remember on June 24, The Hubie Ashcraft Band on July 29, Auburn’s own Big Caddy Daddy on August 26, and Whoa, Man! on September 23. Attendees are encouraged to show off their cars and bring blankets and lawn chairs to the event.
