Peregrine Falcon Adoption Reception


Help welcome the newest River Hawks into the UMass Lowell family! A pair of peregrine falcons has been living atop Fox Hall for nearly 10 years. They obviously like it here and as the closet living creatures to the University mascot, the mythical River Hawks, we feel it's a match made in heaven. The University, which provides a nesting box and nurturing eye, will officially "adopt" them at a ceremony today. They will receive names selected through a student-wide contest. Check them out via web cam at www.uml.edu/HawkWatch.

Delta Rae Performs at Lowell Summer Music Series


Tickets $29 in advance/ $35 day of show/ $129 premium seating

Delta Rae's debut album Carry The Fire, came out to high praise last summer. The six piece rock band has been profiled everywhere from NPR to Time to Forbes and Rolling Stone proclaimed that "if Fleetwood Mac came up in North Carolina, they might resemble Delta Rae." VH1 hand selected them for their "You Oughta Know" Artist Of The Month program. They performed not once, but twice on both The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and on Conan. Live is where Delta Rae truly flourishes. They played pretty much every festival under the sun, including Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits and Voodoo. Delta Rae just released a brand new EP, Chasing Twisters, that includes the blazing title track which Rolling Stone deemed "heroic" and "Run," which iTunes hand-picked as their Single Of The Week. The EP also includes the hit "If I Loved You" featuring Lindsay Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac.

Amos Lee @ Lowell Summer Music Series @ Boarding House Park


$45 Advance / $50 Day of Show / $145 Premium Seating

Taking inspiration from soul greats Stevie Wonder and Bill Withers and folk legends John Prine and Dave Van Ronk, Amos Lee directs his music with a spirit and presence rooted in American tradition. Amos delivers a unique brand of folk-soul music that aims to unite, uplift, and inspire. The "folk" side is reflected in his nimble acoustic guitar playing and the intimacy of his live performances. The "soul" strain comes through in the engaging song-poetry of his lyrics and in what the Philadelphia Inquirer described as his "easygoing voice" and "raw, unedited emotion." Lee has toured with legendary artists like Bob Dylan and Paul Simon, collaborated with Norah Jones and Lucinda Williams, and been regularly touted as a favorite songwriter and performer by the likes of The Band Perry and Lady Antebellum.
