Sun beaming down on his shades, watching the crowd, swaying to the sound of his hit “Middle Child” and enjoying the show before he heads back on the tour bus for another city: This is a day in the life of Americana singer Kort McCumber.

McCumber is one of many artists performing at this summer’s Noontime Notes Concert Series, which takes place every Tuesday on the Oak Street Plaza in Old Town.

“I love doing outdoor shows, and I love Fort Collins, so I thought I’d give it a try,” McCumber said.

The singer has performed since his childhood; though he didn’t always have a love for the folk, blues, rock mix that he is now well known for.

He eventually learned to play guitar and created his own, unique sound that has people from all ages coming out to hear the man play some soul.

“My music is pretty rootsy and down-to-earth,” he said.

This is the third annual concert series hosted by Chippers Lane bowling alley and it hosts a variety of artists, ranging from bluegrass performers including everyone from McCumber to the Celtic band Meadowlark.

“We figured it’d be a great way to serve the community and promote the business,” said Chippers Lane employee Chris Schwartz.

The series kicked off June 1 and will continue until the second week of August with the musicians performing from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. All performances are free and open to the public.
