Denton duo the Monkberries will split their concert opening this year's Twilight Tunes between the Beatles and original music today.
Twilight Tunes, a free concert on the downtown Denton Square each Thursday from the end of April through June, turns 24 this year.
The Monkberries are Marissa Hunt, Adam Millard and their four-piece band. The duo (who are a couple) sing sweet, poppy melodies that swing lazily through a haze of twangy, buzzing guitar. Hunt and Millard seem naturally inclined toward Beatles harmonies, and between her effortless mezzo and his tenor, listeners at Twilight Tunes should get a sweet, summery finish for an evening on the Square.
Music starts at 6:30 p.m. on Thursdays, and attendees are welcome to bring blankets and chairs to relax and enjoy the music. Attendees are encouraged to dine or get take-out from nearby restaurants before or after the concerts.
Up next week: Jeff Glover, Joe Pat Hennen and Brian Houser, singer-songwriters performing Americana.
