“We’re excited for our seventh season of KeyBank Live at Larkin, our signature music series,” said Larkin Square Director of Fun Leslie Zemsky. “We are pleased to continue our tradition of presenting the best of local music with the added twist of welcoming some nationally touring bands to Larkin Square.
