No matter what brand of music it is that perks up your eardrums, summertime in New England is awash with opportunity to relax — or rage — during an evening of composing bliss.
The same roadways that bring you to dance with the mountains in the winter also can deliver you into another realm of grooving, celebrating the summer months with evenings of harmony.
The Music in the Meadow concert series in Stowe, Vermont, will feature a July 8 performance by the Vermont Symphony Orchestra, in addition to blues singer Marcia Ball on July 15, roots-collective band Dustbowl Revival (recently voted best live band in Los Angeles by L.A. Weekly), and Phoebe Hunt & The Gatherers, a free show on Aug. 5, featuring foundations in jazz and swing music.
All shows are held at the expansive Trapp Family Lodge concert meadow, where seating is picnic-style and on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, as well as discovering additional concerts put on by Stowe Performing Arts this summer, visit www.stoweperformingarts.com.
