Bradford, Vermont is doing our best to #KeepMusicAlive for the second year in a row... here's the schedule so far:
3:15-3:45 Concrete & Musty Electric Guitars at JM Landscaping Nursery & Garden Center
3:15-3:45 Gloria and Carl Blaisdell Autoharp and Banjo at The Space On Main
4:15-4:30 John Hollinrake Minstrel Songs at the Colatina Exit
...and more! Kids strolling around with ukes... shakers and stuff to borrow at the Summer Street Music Series booth... and people of all ages and abilities are invited to bring an instrument-- including voices-- to make acoustic music in any of the downtown public spaces!
***Please be respectful of other music being made nearby... it will be lovely to have lots of music going on at once, but also at a volume level so that everyone can be heard by those nearby :)
All music is planned to be outside-- though most of the venues can also be used in bad weather, so the event is Rain or Shine!!
Check out Make Music Vermont for more details on how this event happens elsewhere in our lovely state! This effort brings music makers of all ages and experience out to the sidewalks, parks, porches and public places of the state on June 21, 2018, the first day of summer — a free celebration of music-making that takes place on the same day in more than 120 countries and 800 cities across the globe. It’s the longest day of the year, the best to spend making music!
If you’re a musician, sign up to participate. If you’d like to gather musicians to perform a free show, at a public place or even a front porch, register as a site coordinator. Your performance will appear on the site and Vermonters everywhere will know where to find it!
Make Music Vermont is coordinated by Big Heavy World, Vermont’s independent, volunteer-run music office, uniting musicians across the state, building resources that help our music community help itself, and celebrating the diversity and talent of Vermont-made music.
