Hotel Phillips Lets Local Musicians Shine

12 Baltimore’s new Featured Fridays music program kicks off this month.

The performance series is designed to shine a spotlight on local up-and-coming musicians every Friday night from 5-7:30 p.m. Featured performers are 16-year-old signer and songwriter Gracie Schram, who released her first record at 10. She will take the stage July11, 18 and 25. Katlyn Conroy of La Guerre and Cowboy Indian Bear performs August 1 and 8.

“It is an honor to work with local emerging artists, such as Gracie Schram and Katlyn Conroy, and give them the platform to share their amazing talent with their hometown community,” said Gerald Rappaport, the hotel’s general manager. “At Hotel Phillips, we have always been a supporter of the local arts community, and we are excited about this new opportunity with the ‘Featured Fridays’ series.”

The weekly event is free and open to the public, complete with valet parking at no cost. You can also take advantage of the timing to enjoy happy hour specials like $3 draft beers, half-price appetizers and half-off signature cocktails, or make it a musical dinner date.
