Celebrate the summer solstice and Make Music Day Tuesday, June 21 at the Godnick Adult Center

Tuesday, June 21 — RUTLAND —The Godnick Adult Center in Rutland, the Wild Woods Song Circle, and three local bands will celebrate the Rutland version of Make Music Day on Tuesday, June 21, from 12:30 – 8:30 p.m. at the pavilion and lawn behind the Godnick Center, weather permitting.

The event is free and open to all.

The drop-in event is part of a Vermont and international music-making celebration of the summer solstice, the longest day of the year. Big Heavy World, a non-profit in Burlington, is statewide coordinator:

Those attending should bring a chair for outdoor listening and, if you wish, a bag lunch/ dinner. In case of rain, the bands may be canceled, but the song circle portion and BYO lunch portion can move inside.

Members of the Wild Woods Song Circle performing acoustically from 12:30 until 4 p.m. After that, three local acts: The In Crowd, Phil Henry, and Krishna Guthrie Band will set up and play from the Pavilion.

Krishna Guthrie Band

The Guthrie family story is interwoven into the fabric of American music. While Krishna Guthrie incorporates elements of his lineage, from the folk roots of his great-grandfather, Woody  Guthrie to the masterful storytelling of his grandfather Arlo, he’s not afraid of adding influences from his own generation as he carves his own initials in the family tree. His band is a collection of like-minded individuals, each with influences of their own, who value what music offers to the world and strive to make each show better than the last.

Phil Henry

Phil Henry is a local favorite and a rare contemporary folk artist who will impress you from every direction. There’s his sweet and strong voice, that intricate and flawless guitar work, and songs so rich and sweeping you’ll wish you wrote them yourself.

The In Crowd

The In Crowd, a collective of seasoned musicians from southern Vermont, was developed in late 2021 with the soul intent of bringing good grooves and heartfelt jams to audiences through original music and captivating covers.
