Ada Dyer in Tribute to Aretha Franklin at AotL

Singer returns to Lake Carmel for July 10 concert

Chicago-born Ada Dyer will sing a tribute to Aretha Franklin in a pay-as-you-wish lakeside evening concert on the North Lawn of the Lake Carmel Cultural Center, 640 Route 52, on Friday, July 10, from 7 to 9 p.m.

Dyer’s soulful and sultry voice earned her gigs on tours and in recording sessions with Chaka Khan, Roberta Flack, Judy Collins, Lenny Kravitz, Boz Scaggs, Cher, the J. Geils Band, Steely Dan, Amy Grant, Sting, Michael Bolton and Luther Vandross, to name a few.

Guests are encouraged to come early and enjoy a picnic dinner alongside scenic Lake Carmel. Bring folding chairs, blankets and refreshments or purchase vendor food from Summer Concert Series sponsor Deli Land and others during the concert. In case of rain, the show will go on, but indoors.

For those who miss this show and want to catch Dyer and her band, she will be performing most Sundays in July and August at the B.B. King Blues Club and Grill on 42nd Street in New York City. Tickets are available at Ticketmaster.
