Concerts on the Village Green for 2018

JUNE, JULY, AND AUGUST, Friday evenings, 7:30 pm - 9 pm.  

NOTE:  IF heavy RAIN is in the forecast, the concert will be in the 
GRANARY, upstairs.  Please bring chairs.
Ready-to-eat food by a local truck will be at the Village Green for delicious supper offerings.

 Thanks to all our musicians who play for the fun of playing in a terrific venue.

We have an exciting line-up with some who have performed before and several new-to-us.   Picnickers are always welcome.  Concerts are free, but a basket is passed to help support the Granary renovation projects.   This year the money raised will go toward a  Band Shelter for the stage.
