Concert In White Marsh Benefitting Firefighters Attracts National Acts
WHITE MARSH, MD – A concert featuring country artists, food and alcohol is coming to White Marsh this September. The White Marsh Volunteer Fire Company hosts the show, called “Fields of Fire.”
Parmalee, Tenille Arts and Rexton Lee Country Music will perform at the Sept. 10 concert, held at the field near the firehouse on Philadelphia Road in White Marsh.
Fields of Fire will be an “awesome community event,” White Marsh Volunteer Fire Company President Kevin C. Palmer Jr. told Patch. “You get to experience a concert right here in White Marsh without the hassle of traveling far, spending a lot of money on concessions, and all proceeds go right back into the community.”
This is the fourth year the fire company is holding the “Fields of Fire” concert, which began in 2018 to benefit the White Marsh Volunteer Fire Company. It started as a smaller event at Richardson Farms that featured local acts, according to Palmer. Now national acts are coming to White Marsh.
“We work with a talent agency in Nashville to secure [a] country recording artist,” Palmer said. “We also try to bring in local acts to open up the event.”
The headliner this year is Parmalee, a band whose song “Take My Name” hit No. 1 on the Billboard charts in June, when the group also performed on the Today show.
Money from the concert goes toward the White Marsh Volunteer Fire Company, which has raised nearly $30,000 since starting the event for the organization. The only year it was on hiatus was 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, when large gatherings were not permitted.
Tickets are $45 to $80, depending on where people want to be during the show. Offerings include pit, seated and general admission (grass) tickets.
Gates will open at 5 p.m., and the concert starts at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 10, at 10331 Philadelphia Rd., White Marsh. Food and alcohol will be for sale.
