Wednesday, July 5, 7 p.m.—BRANDON—Brandon’s summer concert series, Music at the Riverbend, will be happening every Wednesday night in July and August at its new location, the lawn behind the Brandon Inn, 20 Park St., Brandon. Extra Stout, Vermont’ premier Irish band, will kick off the series July 5.
Extra Stout brings all of the variety that Irish music has to offer from raucous drinking songs to ballads of home and county, from slow and haunting airs to rocking reels, jigs and polkas.
The line-up for the rest of the summer includes: Left Eye Jump, July 12; Red Hot Juba, July 19; Enerjazz, July 26; Michele Fay Band, Aug. 2; Stone Cold Roosters, Aug. 9; DC3, Aug. 16; Mad Mountain Scramblers, Aug. 23; and Battle of the Bands winner The Threatles, Aug. 30.
Bring a lawn chair, blanket and a picnic, or pick up dinner from a local eatery. Beer and wine will be available for purchase. Sorry, no B.Y.O.B. The concerts are free, and start at 7 p.m. On July 12, Aug. 2, and Aug. 16, the Brandon Town Band will also play at 6 p.m.
