The Flour Mill Business Improvement Area will launch July Jam this Wednesday.

The July Jam, taking place at Flour Mill Heritage Museum, is a series of free acoustic concerts running every Wednesday evening during the month of July, featuring local musicians and supporting local business.

The Flour Mill Business Improvement Area represents the interests of local businesses in the area. The mandate is to revitalize and restore the area, as well as to promote the business district as a shopping area.

Local francophone artist Stephane Paquette and folk artists Northern Gypsies headline the first concert of the summer.

Stephane Paquette is a talented local musician and recording artist. He isnÂ?t a stranger to the francophone music scene in Northern Ontario with appearances at numerous folk and francophone festivals.

Northern Gypsies singer Gladys McElrea has produced two recordings. She has performed at Summerfest, Bell Park Gazebo concerts, Anderson Farm Heritage Concert Series and numerous other special events around town. She performs a variety of music from her original compositions to classic songs.

Weather permitting, attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets and head out to enjoy some great local talent at the Flour Mill Heritage Museum at 245 St. Charles St., behind Lagace's Confectionary on Notre Dame Avenue.
