Earth Sky Time hosting concert
The family friendly event will kick off with Blueberry Buckle, a gypsy jazz family band hailing from Pownal,. Their reinterpretations of classic rock hits feature Kate Byrne on electric violin, Savannah Byrne on drums and their father Tom on guitar and bass.
Moose Crossing from Poultney will take the stage next. Band leader Zach Hampton, who heads the music department at Maple Street School, will be joined by Tim "The Mayor" Duch, Johnny Reiter and Jack McChesney.
The Bulldog Alley Alley Cats, from Washington, D.C. are the headliner.
The Alley Cats are a six-piece funk fusion orchestra, playing an expansive catalog of originals and innovative, funk-heavy takes on jazz standards.
