ROCK HALL — The Mainstay in Rock Hall has announced that it will be opening for live in-person concerts.
The Mainstay family can’t wait to welcome audiences back to the 125-seat listening room, the release states.
The season will start with two Mainstay Mondays and two mainstage concerts in July and August, before returning to a full slate of concerts for the rest of 2021.
The Mainstay kicked off the season with Mainstay Monday featuring Holt and Herberman on July 12.
