An Evening with Natalie Merchant
Dorset Theatre Festival and artistic director Dina Janis announce the addition of ‘An Evening with Natalie Merchant’ to the Festival’s 42nd season, with a special one-night-only concert at the Dorset Playhouse on August 4. The event is co-produced with Higher Ground Presents. Two years after 2017’s ‘Three Decades of Song Tour,’ which played mostly large amphitheaters, this event is a unique opportunity for fans to see the celebrated singer, joined by her long-time guitarist Erik Della Penna. “I’ve reached a point in my career of wanting unique experiences on tour,” stated Merchant. “This summer, we’ve decided to do a tour of New England … steering clear of big cities and playing unique and intimate venues in small, picturesque towns. We’re looking forward to seeing the rocky coast of Maine, the green rolling hills of Vermont, the historic village squares and white steepled churches of Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Connecticut. I imagine we will meet many locals and visitors seeking the same sort of experience that we are and I expect the audiences and the settings will inspire us.” Tickets are on sale through dorsettheatrefestival.org.
