Summer Concert Series 2017- Our Exciting new concept was a huge success!!
The warmth of the late-day sun on your face . . . the swell of music and the smell of popcorn carried on an evening breeze . . . Brandon’s new and improved 2016 summer concert series attracted over 100 folks to each performance and over 200 to some of them!!
Every Wednesday night in July and August, Brandon’s Central Park was the site of a free concert for our community. We had an eclectic line-up of bands on tap, and hosted food vendors and twice had Foley Brothers providing spirits. Folks came out and relaxed with some quality music and comfort food with their friends and neighbors. The kids had fun running around, painting faces and enjoying free popcorn. (The selectboard closed Carver Street in front of the Congregational Church during the concerts each week.)
Now let’s do it again in 2017!! Be part of live community music! Make a secure online donation here to help put on the 2017 Brandon Summer Concert Series. We’re moving out of Central Park and across the street to the beautiful lawn behind the Brandon Inn next to the Neshobe River, thanks to the generosity of Sarah and Louis Pattis and the Brandon Inn!
We changed things up and added some new, enjoyable and family-friendly performances!
Here are the groups who performed during our 2017 season: Watch this spot for the list of performers for 2018!
