The Boston-based band Canary is set to perform at the kickoff of the Berklee Music Fest on Georges Island on Saturday, June 16.

Some of Berklee College of Music’s up-and-coming musicians are turning one Boston Harbor island into a concert venue this summer.

Student and alumni of the school are performing a series of free concerts on Georges Island as part of the Berklee Summer in the City programs.

The free outdoor concerts known as Berklee Music Fest on Georges Island will bring rock, pop, blues, funk, soul, and folk music to the island one Saturday per month through August.

All the concerts are set to run from 2 to 6 p.m. and will feature three artists or bands performing back-to-back.

The series is scheduled to kick off Saturday, June 16, with performances by the bands Canary, Luke Mulholland Band, and Sounds of Venus, an ambient rock group.

Canary, a Boston-based band comprised of five Berklee students, has released an EP and four singles and will appear on the next Heavy Rotation Records release, Dorm Sessions 8.

The blues rock band, Luke Mulholland Band, has toured with Dickey Betts and Blues Traveler.

The following two concerts are scheduled for Saturday, July 21 and Saturday, August 18. The lineups for those shows will include The Jauntee, Zilch, Blue Mountain Bustdown, Julia Easterlin, April Bender, and Columbus.
