Middlebury Festival on the Green Schedule
Noon Gary Dulabaum & Rik Barron
"Whether it be a family concert or an all-ages show, Gary's high-energy, humor-laced concerts make you just want to laugh, smile, move and sing along."
7:00 pm Waldo & Woodhead-Masters of Mayhem
“These are two very talented performers that I would recommend to anyone looking for some great family entertainment. A national treasure!”
8:30 pm River City Slim & the Zydeco Hogs
"The Zydeco Hogs cook up a spicy musical gumbo that combines the traditional sounds of the button accordion and washboard with a driving, syncopated beat. The Hogs turn every venue they play into a rockin' Louisiana dance party!"
Noon Waldo & Woodhead-Masters of Mayhem
“Frantic, frenzied, frenetic, funny, fantastic-- these are just a few words that describe the madcap Waldo Woodhead Show."
7:00 pm Comas
"Their playing is passionate, expressive and very upbeat. If you love the music of Flook, Lunasa & similar bands, you'll love this."
8:30 pm Rani Arbo and daisy mayhem
" As hard to classify as it is to praise highly enough...an intoxicating blend of roots music styles, with deep traditional roots and a healthy futuristic outlook. Strongly recommended.” - The Rogue Folk Review,Vancouver, BC
Noon No Strings Marionettes
"This timeless art form engages young and old alike in virtual reality the old fashioned way....LIVE! With puppets!"
7:00 pm Sheesham & Lotus
“Come highstepping with Sheesham and Lotus!. Old-time rhythms that will blow the mind and hypnotize! ”
8:30 pm The Sweetback Sisters
"Like a pair of luxurious soft cashmere socks for your ears, the silky vocal harmonies of Emily Miller and Zara Bode are a decadent treat...Think "Indigo Girls Meet Sweethearts of the Rodeo and Get Possessed by the Ghost of Patsy Cline While Riding Shot Gun with Bob Wills in a 1939 Ford Pickup," or even "Dale Evans With Attitude and Swagger"
Noon Sheesham & Lotus
"Fantastic musicians that that keep you breathless with laughter"
7:00 pm Will Patton Ensemble
"Their repertoire, featuring fiery Brazilian sambas and folk waltzes, gentle choros and hot Gypsy jazz, takes you on a musical journey from a Parisian bistro to a plaza in the heart of Rio, and back home again to your front porch."
8:30 pm Sprag Session
"Lingering somewhere amidst the rich, soulful roots of traditional Cape Breton music and the grooves of a thousand branches of rock and funk. Far from the awkward malaise of mohawked bagpipers and kilted punks, the Sprag Session has created a kind of Celtic fusion that is as much Béla Fleck and the Flecktones and Frank Zappa as it is Ashley MacIsaac.
Noon Magician Tom Verner
"I like to think that the magic brings not only laughter and surprise, but on some deeper level perhaps, magic plants seeds of hope."
7:00 pm We're About 9
With a sound that colorfully blends acoustic guitar backed harmonies with pop, blues, and coffeehouse rock, this trio from Baltimore delivers a positively enthralling performance."
8:30 pm The Grift
"stunning, energetic live performance that encompasses elements of hook laden jam rock, classic, wrinkle your nose funk, and clever, singer songwriter sensibilities"
7:00 pm Vermont Jazz Ensemble/Street Dance
Come early and learn some dance steps!
