Wednesday, Aug. 20 at 6 p.m. — PROCTORSVILLE — Sometimes the weather just does not cooperate. Thus, on Wednesday, July 23, the outdoor concert by Sensible Shoes that was scheduled for the Proctorsville Green was cancelled. The rescheduled concert will begin at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 20.
Sensible Shoes is a local band that has played in Proctorsville for several summers. ASCAP award-winning songwriter, keyboard player and singer Barbara Blaisdell plays a powerful New Orleans-inspired rhythm piano. Lead guitarist and singer Tim Utt is widely known as one of Vermont’s most gifted players. Pooh Sprague, on bass, guitar and vocals, is a musical master and has played with the Shoes for years. Drummer and singer Steve Drebber splits his time with the Shoes and his popular jam band, Dr. Jones.
Sensible Shoes has placed original music in several major motion pictures including “Philadelphia” and “The Manchurian Candidate.”
All area residents and visitors are encouraged to join friends and neighbors in front of the gazebo on the green. Bring a blanket or a comfortable chair, have a picnic, or just layback and relax on the grass. As always, the concerts are free and open to all.
