Join us for a family-friendly outdoor folk concert as part of our Summer SOLSTICE event.
Opener: STONEFACE MOUNTAIN. A young bluegrass band from the Boston area who share a common love of music. Their hard-driving Bluegrass sound is influenced by legends such as Flatt & Scruggs, Ricky Skaggs, and Bill Monroe. Stoneface Mountain has been astounding crowds at many popular New England venues for the past five years, such as the Thomas Point Beach Bluegrass Festival, Podunk Bluegrass Festival, Ossipee Valley Bluegrass Festival, Club Passim, and others. They are the emerging future of Bluegrass music.
Headliner: IRA KLEIN (MAC 2022-2023 Artist-in-Residence), KEVIN BARRY, and HAZEL ROYER. You may remember this trio of musician friends from a concert on Bigelow Lawn in September 2022. We liked them so much, we just had to bring them back!
