Robert Frost Stone House Museum to Host Concert, Workshop
The Robert Frost Stone House Museum at Bennington College continues its commitment to serving as a hub of literacy and place-based programming with two exciting August events. On Friday, August 3, from 7 to 9 p.m. the Museum will host an outdoor concert with Grant Wallace Band, who weave a diaphanous sound from threads of new music, modern jazz and old-time folk styles. Members Ben Hjertmann (voice/pedal steel), Chris Fisher-Lochhead (viola/banjo), and Luke Gullickson (piano/guitar) also draw inspiration from outsider artists, including the band’s namesake. Admission is free for members and $5 at the door for non-members. Visitors should bring blankets and chairs; bug spray is also recommended.
On Sunday, August 12, from 1 to 3 p.m., writers are invited to a workshop on mindfulness and writing led by poet James Crews. The cost is $15 for members and $25 for non-members. Pre-registration is encouraged; participants will be accepted day-of as space allows. Examine the connections between the practice of meditation/mindfulness and the act of writing fearlessly from the heart. Beginners and writers of all skill levels are welcome. No previous experience is necessary; all that is required is a notebook or laptop and an open mind. Contact Crews with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For directions or details, call 802-447-6200. The Museum is located at 121 Route 7A in South Shaftsbury, and is open Wednesday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.Visit
