Manchester Town Green Concert
The Bank of Bennington and the Town of Manchester present the summer’s third Concert on the Green on Tuesday, July 26. The So Far Band will be playing on the Factory Point Green from 6 to 8 p.m. This women’s vocal group was founded in 2009 by a group of friends who wanted to sing together for fun. Since then, these Manchester moms have appeared at a wide variety of community fundraisers, from Empty Bowls to Live Green, still singing for fun – and to raise money for local nonprofits. The group is made up of Susan Biggs, Jennifer Crepeau-Lalor, Kathleen James, Fran Marino, Julie Oliva and Mary Welford, backed by Don Martin on acoustic guitar. Hotdogs, sausages, popcorn and non-alcoholic beverages will be available to purchase. There is no smoking at the Town Green; all dogs must be leashed. Questions can be directed to the Recreation Park at 802-362-1439 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Weather-related cancellations will be posted at facebook.com/manchestergov.
The Cavendish Music Series continues on Wednesday, July 27, when the Green Brothers Band takes the stage on the Proctorsville Green at 6 p.m. This will be the fourth of six concerts that are held on consecutive Wednesday evenings in July and August. The Green Brothers Band’s unique blend of musical genres packs a cool, funky, soul-stirring punch, with an eclectic mix of jazz, blues, rock, rhythm and blues, reggae, and Latin fusion. The concert is free and open to everyone, not just Cavendish residents. For information, call Robin at 802-226-7736.
