Silver City, Nevada -Silver City’s annual science and arts summer programming kicks off with acoustic music at the Silver City Park and outdoor stage on Tuesday, June 22 from 10am-noon. Bring a chair and find a spot on the lawn to enjoy the show featuring local musician Mylo McCormick.
Mylo McCormick was recognized for “Best Entertainment in Rural Nevada” by Nevada Magazine in their 2019 “Best of Nevada” survey. McCormick, who performs with Mo’z Motley Blues, Mo’s Duo and the Mylo McCormick Project, has earned a reputation as a masterful young guitarist with tasteful riffs and solos. He has performed funk, rock, and blues at venues around Lake Tahoe, the Comstock, Reno, Carson City and beyond.
A native of Silver City, McCormick began performing in the four towns of the historic Comstock region – Silver City, Virginia City, Gold Hill and Dayton – at age 14. His love of music was inspired by neighbors Will and Sheree Rose. He learned to play guitar with Will, a Vegas-born singer/songwriter who worked with the Four Tops, The Platters, and many Broadway musicals and Vegas production shows in addition to his own bands such as Red Rose.
Sponsorship: Music in the park with Mylo McCormick is sponsored by the Resident Artist Program in Silver City and Healthy Communities Coalition of Lyon and Storey Counties.
