YLC announces 2018 Wednesday at the Square lineup

 NEW ORLEANS — The 12-week free concert series in Lafayette Square, formally known as “Wednesday at the Square,” is back!

The lineup was announced Wednesday.

The series begins Wednesday, March 14 at 5 p.m. featuring a headlining performance by the Grammy Award-winning Lost Bayou Ramblers with Mia Borders as co-headliner.  Meghan Kluth from News With A Twist will return to emcee the series for the second year.

The concert series is free to attend, but all of the food and drink ticket sales go to benefit the Young Leadership Council’s community service projects.

“We are delighted to produce another amazing year of YLC Wednesday at the Square concerts for our community and visitors to enjoy,” said Stephanie Powell, Executive Director of Young Leadership Council. “The series would not be possible without the work of hundreds of volunteers, who handle everything from securing crowd-pleasing talent to the logistics and marketing of the event. It is always so inspiring to see these young professional leaders in action.”
