ATTLEBORO – A free concert by singer and songwriter Kelce will be held on Thursday September 30th to celebrate the opening of Cuddy Court, the city’s new venue off Bank Street near the Sanford Street parking garage.
Cuddy Court was inaugurated in a brief ceremony on Friday. It is named in honor of Tom Cuddy, who was referred to as the “pillar of the community” after his death.
In addition to the Kelce performance, there will be free children’s theater, games, face painting, handicrafts, vendors and food trucks.
Heroux said he anticipates this will be the first of many events on the premises that could include the return of the Wednesday night market during the summer months in the future.
An accomplished musician from Attleboro, Kelce writes R&B-inspired pop to understand and connect with the world, according to a press release from Heroux’s office.
In 2018 she released her first EP (Extended Play Album) “Kelce” and in 2020 her second EP “Perspective”. Their music is available on all major streaming platforms and at www.Kelcemusic.com
When announcing the concert, Heroux stated that around 500 new apartments will be coming to the city center over the next few years.
“This will create the necessary pedestrian traffic to support local businesses,” he said.
And it will create an audience for performances in the Cuddy Court.
Meanwhile, dreary green boxes scattered around the city center have been used as canvases for local artists, and murals have been painted on the walls to spice up the city center.
